"Thembinkosi Lorch is an excellent player because of his football background. And his football background is eight to nine years, maybe even more as an Orlando Pirates player.
"So, kudos to the football club [Orlando Pirates] and respect. That is why it had to be done right, and even from the Orlando Pirates' side, the humility to engage with Mamelodi Sundowns and our desire to get Lorch needs to be applauded."
