Kaizer Chiefs have played 16 league matches, winning eight, losing four, and drawing four. They finished the season with 28 points, scoring 21 goals and conceding 14. They are fourth in the league table, with three games in hand.
Former Buccaneers captain Tonic Chabalala praised Thembinkosi Lorch, saying he is a player who can handle the pressure and take responsibility. This means he takes control of the game and assists his teammates so that they can shine. He draws all of the attention, and the fans expect more from him than they do from his teammates, which helps his teammates feel less pressure and avoid being nervous and making silly mistakes. He is blamed when the team loses and praised most of the time because Pirates is a different team when he is on the field.
Kaizer Chiefs needs a player like him to relieve all of the pressure from Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat, allowing them to play freely without feeling nervous because when they are nervous, they miss many opportunities and misplace passes. They normally play together, but they still lose because the pressure is too much for them.
Chabalala went on to say that when Lorch is at Pirates, something good happens, implying that he can create a goal out of nothing. That is how good he is: he wins man of the match awards without scoring or assisting. The opponents become nervous when he enters the pitch because they are aware of his talent. He improves his teammates, which is why they perform well when he is on the field because he simplifies football for them.
Lorch is needed by the Kaizer Chiefs so that he can perform magic at Amakhosi; we can't rely on Dolly, who is inconsistent. He has the ability to put on a strong performance one weekend and then flop the next. Lorch creates many goal-scoring chances, and he would create many more for Dolly, Lorch, and his teammates. He is skilled and can supply through balls, long passes, and true passes. Amakhosi must stop signing so many players and instead sign Thembinkosi Lorch, as Kaizer Chiefs would be a very dangerous team with him.
