The Premier Soccer League’s Footballer of the Season, Thembinkosi Lorch, has spoken out about the disappointment he had after joining Orlando Pirates four years ago.
After being signed by the Buccaneers in 2015, Lorch was loaned to Cape Town All Stars in the National First Division by the Soweto giants.
The All Stars loan stint for the attacking midfielder was followed by another loan move to Chippa United in 2016, before he was re-called to the Buccaneers in January of 2017.
The 25-year-old star has now confirmed that he was 'very disappointed' after he was loaned out by Bucs.
“When I signed for the club back in 2015, I won’t lie I was very disappointed when I had to go out on loan soon afterwards,” Lorch told Pirates’ official website.
“I went from total elation (by signing for Pirates) to sadness as soon as I heard that I would be going out on loan immediately. At first I saw it as a kick in the teeth. After all I thought to myself, ‘why sign me if you want me to go on loan’,” added Lorch.
“I was demoralised a bit but thankfully my father was there to speak sense into me. He was frank and honest. He said ‘my boy, you need to be special to play for Pirates. They already see something in you, now work to get that something special out of you’,” Lorch told the club’s website.
