Lehlohonolo Majoro is delighted to be back in Durban and says he will try to make a positive impact at AmaZulu FC, despite the negative sentiments shown by some sections of the South African football fraternity.

Speaking of the move back to where he first broke into South Africa’s elite soccer league, Majoro says his career thus far has been illustrious and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Majoro also rubbished the idea that his move to Durban was more to relax, considering the twilight of his career is on the horizon.

He says he is motivated as ever to succeed and help the club win silverware.

Usuthu fans had a first opportunity to see Majoro in action when he featured for AmaZulu in the Msunduzi Cup, which they won in Pietermaritzburg in the weekend.

The Ladybrand-born star scored in the semi-final win over Maritzburg and showed some good touches for Cavin Johnson’s side.

Manqoba Mngqithi, who has moved on to be with Champion Mamelodi Sundowns, was at the helm of AmaZulu when Majoro was last with the team.

Majoro says that a few things have changed since then, especially amongst the playing personnel where he can see plenty of quality.

 

The 32-year-old, who began his senior career at Usuthu in 2010, has spent nearly a decade at some of the country’s biggest clubs, first Kaizer Chiefs where he was a hit, then Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City, followed by a stint at Bidvest Wits last year.

He says that coming back to AmaZulu is really pleasing.

Majoro was an immediate hit at Chiefs when he joined in 2011, going on to become the top-scorer that season, before performing consistently during his two years at Naturena.

He then came in for plenty of stick after opting to swap the yellow and black strip of the Soweto giants for the black one of rivals Pirates, where he failed to really settle.

He was more of a success at Cape Town City, before his modest spell at Wits.
