JOHANNESBURG - Striker Lehlohonolo Majoro's former agent Tim Sukazi on Tuesday said he will sue the player for securing a move to Orlando Pirates from Kaizer Chiefs without his permission.

The player had agreed a pre-contract agreement with Pirates in January, without the knowledge of his agent.

Majoro has now moved to the Buccaneers on a three-year deal after he secured a release from Chiefs over the weekend.

Sukazi says the manner in which Majoro secured his move is the reason he is suing the striker.

"It relates to the manner in which Majoro completed his move to Orlando Pirates, which is now public knowledge, that he did so behind my back. I had indicated earlier that this kind of conduct would warrant legal recourse."

Sukazi is yet to serve Majoro with legal papers.

"We are under no time pressure. There is no due date for us, therefore we can formulate our claim and put together our papers in the best possible way. We will serve it to him and or his representatives in due course."

Sukazi confirmed that due to Majoro agreeing to a contract without his permission, he no longer acts as his agent.

"Our professional relationship with Majoro came to an abrupt end on the day he signed a pre-contract agreement with Orlando Pirates behind our back around 16 or 17 January 2014."
