Pirates Coach Comments On Lorch’s Return

Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has commented on the return of Thembikosi Lorch after an absence of almost three months for the star.

Lorch came on in the last 13 minutes as the Buccaneers drew 1-1 with Moroccan side Raja Casablanca in their CAF Confederation Cup clash at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

Speaking to the media after the match, Zinnbauer refused to commit on how soon Lorch will be ready to be in the starting line-up.

“Lorch, we are happy he is back. We know he was long, long time out and we have to see what happened after the game. Tomorrow, what’s happened, what is the pain and what is his feeling, and we prepare him for the next game. But I cannot say now if he is in the starting line-up or he is on the bench but what is important for us first is he is available and that is good for us,” said the coach.

Pirates will travel to Raja for the second leg clash in Morocco on Sunday to see if they will advance to the semi-finals of the continental competition.
