Cape Town City striker Lehlohonolo Majoro has explained the reason behind his recent performances and reserves praise for coach Benni McCarthy.
Since McCarthy's arrival at the club, Majoro has shown tremendous workrate upfront, cementing his place as the main man in attack.
The 31-year-old centre-forward has managed two goals in four starts this season, with his efforts in their MTN8 semi-final second leg victory over Bidvest Wits on Sunday even earning the plaudits of Gavin Hunt.
‘Major’ explains that he has targeted improvement in one particular aspect of his game this season, and praises the influence of McCarthy.
“I’ve tried to improve one aspect of my game, which is putting in effort in making [forward] runs and also helping the team defend,” Majoro explains to KickOff.com.
“It was one aspect that was lacking in my game, and I think that doesn’t come easy. It comes with a lot of hard work because for you to chase back and mark, and at the same time when we win the ball to create space for yourself with a [forward] run, it takes quite a lot of energy.
“That only happens if you push yourself at training. So I must say I’ve been trying by all means to train harder because, with Benni as a former striker and a person who has made it at the highest level, it comes as a plus for me to have him as a coach and to learn from him."
