Despite a trophyless season, there’s no denying that Orlando Pirates had an excellent season... and that’s just how football is.
As we all know that Thembinkosi Lorch was the star of the show, particularly with goals and assists, but who else deserves recognition?
Unlike at Kaizer Chiefs where the top five scorers included defenders, Pirates’ net-busters were all offensive players.
