“Thembinkosi Lorch is a very important player for Orlando Pirates and he came back at a very good time when the club needed him the most. It’s only that the injury has delayed him and injuries are an enemy of Orlando Pirates. I’m happy that he is back and I wish him everything of the best in the remaining games of the season,” said Mothibi.

Mothibi is hoping to see the Soweto giants go all the way in the competition to bring smiles to the multitudes of the club’s supporters.   

“Good luck to everyone, and all the players who have been signed for Orlando Pirates must know that there is only one Orlando Pirates and there is no other. So, they need to respect the club, the supporters, management and coaches, as well as themselves and their families. They should also respect the legends that have sweat and died for the team,” he said.
