2018/19 Premier Soccer League Player of The Season Thembinkosi Lorch has opened up about struggling to mentally cope with failed moves overseas at the beginning of the season. 


Lorch admitted that offers were on the table however Orlando Pirates could not agree on the numbers following the 2019 African Cup of Nations which took place in Egypt. 


“Offers were there but those people didn't offer Pirates the money they were expecting. But certainly offers were there.” Lorch told Kickoff


“I was disappointed that I couldn't go overseas, because I could see players leaving Pirates for overseas – players like Lyle Foster and Marshall Munetsi.


“So it really hurt me to see the likes of Munetsi playing in France, and Lyle Foster too. Sometimes I ask myself what's wrong with me, what is preventing me from playing overseas? It's still my wish to play overseas because it's my dream, and also my parents’ dream to see me play overseas.”
