Thembinkosi Lorch had the last laugh after Pirates squad numbers for the 2020/21 season were revealed.
Nyoso had been donning Bucs’ number three jersey, having become a household name with the number.
However, Pirates’ marquee signing Thulani Tyson Hlatshwayo is also fond of the number, having donned it for his entire career.
The defender said that he would discuss the matter with his Bafana Bafana teammate, although he respects that the number three has a home.
It seems as though Lorch remained resolute after it was revealed that Hlatshwayo will be following in the footsteps of legendary Pirates figure Lucky Lekgwathi in donning the jersey number 14.
