Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has questioned Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch’s shoulder injury which has seen him sidelined for the remainder of the year.
Lorch has not featured for the Sea Robbers this season since the Carling Black Label Cup in early August – and according to co-coach Fadlu Davids will not be seen in action until 2022.
The star suffered a “freak injury” in early September while at home. It is now unclear, from Broos’ latest comment, what transpired.
“I don’t understand Lorch’s injury, I never seen this in my 45 years of coaching a dislocated shoulder while showering but the same player post happy pictures on Instagram daily,” said Broos.
He may have exaggerated the “daily” part, based on Lorch’s Instagram account. Lorch has only posted once this month, although his ‘stories’ have been more frequent.
He played 125 matches in all competitions for Orlando Pirates to date.
