How Pirates’ Lorch Saw A Major Drop In His Millions

Orlando Pirates playmaker Thembinkosi Lorch has seen a big drop in his market value, which has decreased by the millions.

Lorch suffered a mysterious long-term injury at the start of the campaign, where Pirates first team coach Fadlu Davids revealed that he would be out for the rest of 2021.

So far, Lorch has missed 13 of the Buccaneers' matches in all competitions this season and is amongst a host of Pirates players that are nursing long-term injuries.

According to the figures on, since becoming a regular at Pirates in 2017, Lorch’s market value rose from €175k (±R3.0m), to €1m (±R17.4m), where it peaked until the end of the 2018/19 season, when he was crowned the country’s best player.

However, due to a lack of activity this season, the player has seen a big drop in his market value and now boasts a market value of €875k (±R15.2m).

Along with Zakhele Lepasa, Innocent Maela, and Wayne Sandilands, Lorch is working his way to full fitness and both Ncikazi and Davids will be hoping to have their talismanic midfielder back on the field as they look to restore the pride of the Soweto giants.
