Maritzburg United have gagged their red-hot Warriors striker Cuthbert Malajila, from speaking to the media.

The club says the ban is meant to prevent unnecessary pressure from piling on their striker, who has put a damper on Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs’ title hopes by scoring a solitary goal in each of his club’s wins.

“We do not want unnecessary pressure on him, so we have decided not to let him do interviews because we don’t want to make a fuss about his impressive form at the moment,” club Operations Manager, Quinton Jetoo, told the media this week. The former Chapungu, Highlanders and Dynamos hitman recently claimed the scalps of Chiefs and Sundowns, before seeing his side fall 1-4 to Free State Stars on Saturday.

He dedicated his 81st minute strike against Sundowns, at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, to his mother as a birthday present.

This was just days after he had scored against Chiefs in a midweek encounter at the FNB Stadium to all but seal the Amakhosi’s empty envelope for the 2011-12 season, the first barren spell for them in more than a decade.
