☠️☝🏿 Mokwena not happy with Lorch

Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena has not hidden his annoyance with Thembinkosi Lorch after last night’s silly red card.

Pirates pulled an excellent comeback to defeat Polokwane City 3-2 to jump into the Absa Premiership top eight.

Lorch was however caught in a heated confrontation with City’s Puleng Tlolane. While Tlolane was the obvious aggressor, Lorch was guilty of retaliating in the worst way and was shown his marching orders just before half time.

"I haven't seen the penalty to be honest, I will check. But I think the red card [on Lorch] is deserved because he is retaliating to a situation where he shouldn't retaliate to, so I have to check again," Mokwena told SuperSport TV in the post-match chat.

"I saw unfortunately they hit him with the ball and the emotions got the better of him unfortunately. But that sort of behaviour can't be condoned, we'll speak to him, it's not right," Mokwena added.

Games Lorch will miss:

  • Baroka (away)
  • Leopards (home)
  • Celtic (away).
