Majoro welcomes competition
Lehlohonolo Majoro says the arrival of Kingston Nkhatha at the club will spur him on to score more goals this season.
Chiefs have brought in the Zimbabwean hitman from Black Leopards, and Nkhatha will compete with Majoro, Bernard Parker, Stehmbiso Ngcobo and Kaizer Motaung Junior for a starting place.
Majoro says his arrival is not seen as a threat, nut rather motivation to keep on improving and scoring goals.
“Clearly if Kaizer Chiefs have bought him, that means he has great potential,” Majoro says. “So that means that if you are at the club already, you have to now up your game. For me it’s a positive motivation.”
Majoro was top-scorer for AmaKhosi last season with 15 goals in all competitions in his first year with the club, That followed a successful debut PSL campaign for AmaZulu, when he netted 16 times.
He says he had heard talk that he would be
a one-season wonder, but chose not to listen to the prophets of doom.
“Let me say that I try by all means to ignore that kind of talk. As a player you must know where you focus your energy. Such things will distract you if you let them get to you. For me personally, I know footballers do lose their form here and there but that’s the name of the game in a way. I try to stay level headed and ignore such talk.”
He says he is now fully settled an Naturena and looking forward to improving his game further this season.
“I’ve settled in but one thing I can say is that there is no such thing as a comfort zone. If you do that you lose focus, relax and then lose your form. I try to push myself even harder. We have good quality players at the club. It motivates me to compete against other good players,” Majoro says.
