It can be said that Thembinkosi Lorch is still one of the biggest stars in the local game today with fans flocking to social media recently where they debated about his stance with Orlando Pirates. Check it out!
What’s the story?
In recent years, Lorch has become one of the star turners in the local game and even went on to become a popular figure within the national team fold, after his performances in the previous African Cup of Nations tournament.
‘Nyoso’, as he is known fondly has, however, had a season to forget this time around. The 27-year-old only featured on 18 occasions this season, scoring four while recording five assists along the way.
Missing In Action
In February, Lorch suffered an injury in a game where he was substituted in the 28th minute of the game and hasn’t featured since. What infuriated supporters, even more, is that the Pirates coaching staff are unsure as to when Lorch would be returning to action.
That being said, Lorch becomes one of the most talked-about players online as fans took to Twitter in discussing the skilful star’s absence.
Time To Go?
It’s also been reported that Lorch has the ambition to ply his trade abroad, with interest said to have come from Europe and also, North Africa. With that in mind, some supporters have spoken about the idea of Lorch leaving Pirates and that of the club eventually letting him pursue his career goals elsewhere.
