Professional football players go through criticism from fickle fans when their performances are inconsistent, especially when a player's name has been in every fan's mouth due to exquisite displays on the pitch. Thembinkosi Lorch falls in that category of players.

The 28-year-old is one of the household names in Mzansi football due to his wonderful displays on the pitch. He has been the Buccaneers' playmaker for the past seasons but his best season came under Micho Sredojevic in the 2018/2019 season.

The Bafana Bafana international won the 2018/2019 Absa Premiership League player of the year accolate after such a blissful season where Pirates finished 2nd behind Mamelodi Sundowns.

Many believe his failed overseas move got the better of him eventually and his performances were inconsistent the following season and that's when he started getting criticized by fans.

Lorch was influential during his team's recent run in the CAF Confederations Cup where they got to the final which was played last week Friday against RS Berkane. Although the Buccaneers dominated majority of the game, they couldn't capitalise on their chances and as a result the match went on to penalties where the Sea Robbers ended up losing 5-4.

Despite scoring the equalizer, Nyoso was severely criticised after he missed the only penalty in the shootout. He was named Man Of The Match on the night and showed remorse in his post match interview.

What better way to overcome adversity than to put in a breath-taking performance in your next game? That's exactly what the Orlando Pirates playmaker did last night against Maritzburg United in the Dstv Premiership League.

The skillful winger redeemed himself by putting in yet another Man Of The Match performance in his side's 4-1 demolition. He scored one goal and assisted three.

The win was big for the Buccaneers as they're currently left with two matches to play and are seeking to book a spot in next season's CAF Champions League. If they win the remaining two matches, they stand a chance of qualifying for the prestigious tournament.
