Reader's Voice: Lorch, Zwane Or Kekana? Who Will Walk Away As Player Of The Season?

Tshini!

Orlando Pirates forward Thembinkosi Lorch has been a standout player for the club this season. With the campaign nearing its end, Lorch has come out saying he would like to win the Player of the Season accolade. While some fans think he definitely could, others think he needs to lift Bucs to greater heights before he can be a real contender for the prize.

Talelani Trevor Sirunwa thinks winning the ABSA Premiership trophy this season would undoubtedly help make Lorch the best player of the season. However, the Soccer Laduma reader says should Pirates fail to win the league, there are other players who will take the award:

"Honestly speaking, Lorch has done very well. His duty now is to do more for Pirates to walk away with the league, then he will be guaranteed that as a footballer of the season. But if Downs walk away with it, then Themba Zwane or [Hlompho] Kekana will steal it from him."

Lorch has already won the hearts of many fans irrespective of the outcome of the title race this season. Soccer Laduma reader Jayne Sheenah Matongwa thinks the forward's talent is undeniable and should not be defined by the award:

"Even if you don't win it, just remember that you are the best footballer and no one will take away the talent you have."

However, Lorch's critics, such as Isaac Mayuka Sesinyi, think there is only one player who can win the Player of the Season award, and it is not Lorch:

"Themba Zwane is the only player to win this award."
