Once a feared striker who has played for both the Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, but now Lehlohonolo Majoro has found himself in the doldrums.
Majoro, and four other senior players at the club – Michael Morton, Nhlanhla Vilakazi, Thembela Sikhakhane and Jabulani Ncobeni are said to have been suspended, and sent to train with the MDC team due to ill-discipline.
The club did however clarify that the players were not fired from their jobs, but rather sent away to undergo a special programme with the medical team.
According to Goal.com, Usuthu team manager Qedi Dlamini confirmed the suspension of the five players.
“We are not firing them. They were not moved aside because they are not in our plans, ” Dlamini was quoted as saying.
“We wanted our medical department to focus on them. Remember, these are seasoned players who do not have age on their side.
“A decision was taken that it will be difficult for them to play two or three games in a row. We took a decision of setting up a special training session for them separately. They won’t be considered for selection for our upcoming game against Arrows.
“They won’t train with the main team up until we get a report from the medical team regarding an update on their progress. Their programme will be well taken care of by our head of medical, Joshua Smith.”
Usuthu currently sit in a precarious position, 15th on the Absa Premiership standings, and take on Golden Arrows in the KwaZulu-Natal derby on Saturday, February 15.
