SLTV: Pitso: What Happened To Lorch That He Wants To Win The League For Pirates Now?
Pitso Mosimane has joked about Thembinkosi Lorch and Orlando Pirates’ ambitions of winning the league.
Time and time again, Milutin Sredojevic has avoided any talk about the league title, despite the Buccaneers now sitting at the top of the log.
However, according to Coach Mosimane, Lorch has since broken the ice, with the February Absa Premiership Player of the Month, going on record to say that he wants to win the league with Pirates this season.
During the press conference yesterday, Mosimane asked Lorch about what has changed that someone from Pirates has finally come out and been vocal about their ambitions for the league title.
“Lorch, I saw your interview last time, you said that you are winning the league and for me, you broke the ice because Orlando Pirates (are) always saying that they don’t want to win the league, so one cat went out of the bag – ‘we are winning the league’, because the gospel from everybody, from Micho to everybody since last year, you say you don’t want to win the league and I said last year – it’s because you didn’t want it. Because, if you don’t want something, you can't get it,” Mosimane said.
“So, this year I wonder what happened to you? You said, no I want to win this league? So, was it you?” he asked.
