Speaking to SAFA’s official website, after receiving a Bafana Bafana call-up, the player revealed that all the moves in his professional career have been key in transforming him as a player, adding that coach Mokwena often gives him words of advice.

“That whole process played a massive part in transforming me into a player that I am today,” Lorch told SAFA’s official website.

“I had to be patient while at the same time continued working hard to increase my fitness levels, and it was not easy. I am looking at ways to continue getting better.
