Pics! Lorch On Vacation With His Girlfriend. It’s football off-season meaning it’s vacation time for players and their families as they get to escape South African winter season and trade it for some sun in tropical resorts. We all know that Mzansi footballers love a good escape to somewhere with a beach where they get to enjoy summer in the water.
Orlando Pirates midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch is currently on vacation at an undisclosed location with his girlfriend, actress Natasha Thahane. Whilst the couple have not posted photos together, they have been posting from what looks like the same location. Have a look below at Lorch’s chilled holiday so far.
WHAT ABOUT HIS LIFE ON THE PITCH?
Lorch was out for months after he picked an injury towards the end of last year. He was a significant absentee at Pirates as they didn’t have someone who makes the team move. His return towards the end of the season brought some change in the team’s attack.
Just after his return, Lorch was fortunate enough to impress Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos as he gave him his first call-up since he took charge of the national team. When he reacted to a call-up, he also spoke about the injury.
“I’d like to thank all those who supported me. It was not an easy season for me with all the injuries that I had,” said Lorch as per Sowetan Live.
“I am happy that I am back in the Bafana team and I am looking forward to the game. To be honest, I think it was too soon for me. I did not expect it but I knew that it was going to come because my performance was going up and I was helping the team to win the games.
“I remember when the season started, I got a groin injury and I was out for six weeks. And when I came back, I got a shoulder dislocation and I had to go for an operation and it kept me out for about three months.
“I came back early December and I had gained some weight. So, I had to work on my fitness. I think I am getting there but I won’t put pressure on myself. I’ll take it slowly until I reach my full potential — you could see in the last four matches in the league that I gave it my all.”
