The future is bright for Lorch - Mosimane

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has singled out Orlando Pirates stand out performer this season and Bafana Bafana attacker Thembinkosi Lorch for his great performance this season. Mosimane was speaking after Lorch was announced as the Absa Premiership player of the month for February. Last month, Lorch scored a wonderful goal to level the matters in the one-all draw in the Soweto derby, he also produced a man of the match performance during the 4-1 demolition of Amazulu. Mosimane says the Bucs attacker deserves all the attention coming his way. Very soon, the debate around the nominees for the PSL Footballer of the season is going to start and Lorch has emerged as a strong candidate there as well. It’s been a season characterized by inconsistency in the PSL and very few have raised their hands but players like Gaston Sirino and Lebohang Maboe deserve a mentioning. Mosimane believes that Lorch and his captain Hlompho Kekana are strong candidates. Sundowns are currently tied on 40 points with Pirates at the top of the log with the Buccaneers ahead of superior goal difference but the Brazilians have a game in hand. Whilst Mosimane was happy with the coach of the month award, he says his focus is on winning the big one, his fourth league title come end of the season.
