Lorch Makes Surprise Pirates Claim

Thembinkosi Lorch has surprisingly claimed that Orlando Pirates players are only playing for themselves.

The 28-year-old is yet to feature for the Buccaneers in the new season after picking up a shoulder injury that has seen him miss Pirates MTN8 quarter-final and the opening two DStv Premiership games.

Lorch, though, wrote headlines on Wednesday after comments from the SuperSport show Sitting with Stan went viral.

“I’ll be honest, I think nowadays the players only play for themselves. You don’t want to see someone else shine,” he said in an episode that aired in August.

“When was the last time you saw Pirates scoring a tap-in? Someone else passing it for someone to score a tap-in? 

“I think everyone plays for themselves now.”

Pirates were knocked out of the MTN8 cup after losing 2-1 to Swallows FC before picking up draws against Stellenbosch and Marumo Gallants.
