Micho’s ‘Atomic Ant’ At Pirates

Milutin Sredojevic thinks that he has ‘the best player in South Africa’ in his team at Orlando Pirates, and was clear about who he thinks should be winning the Footballer of the Season award.
 
 
The 25-year-old enjoyed his most productive season ever in 2018/19 as he picked up 20+ goal contributions in all competitions, helping the Buccaneers to a second place finish as they once again booked their spot in the CAF Champions League for 2019/20.
 
‘Micho’, who has seen Lorch in the best form of his career, had some very kind words for the attacker following their 3-0 win over Polokwane City (in which he scored a brace), insisting that he’s the sort of role model that is required.
 
Speaking to the media the Serbian said, “He is a lion in a human shape… Throughout the season, really he has been a role model, led by example and given his best in each and every match. Sometimes we were wondering where he got the energy with the body he has. I call him the ‘atomic ant’.”
 
 
When asked about the Footballer of the Season award – where he can’t vote for Lorch – he replied, “With sincere appreciation to his teammates also, if anything is to be put on the table, he has been our best player this season, and I believe the best player in South Africa at the moment.”
 
Lorch is up for three gongs at the PSL Awards ceremony this weekend, including the Player’s Player of the Year award.
