'See As Benni McCarthy defend Lorch & Hotto, After The Defeat To RS Berkane.

Benni McCarthy defends these two Pirates stars after losing to RS Berkane

Benni stands up for Hotto and Lorch. 

Deon Hotto and Thembinkosi Lorch have been defended by ex-Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy after the duo failed to capitalise on golden opportunities that could have brought the Buccaneers the CAF Confederations Cup championship. After the Buccaneers were knocked out of the playoffs, McCarthy's message is delivered. 

While the 44-year-old former AmaZulu employee was there at Sunday's match against RS Berkane, it has been stated that the free agent was not. 

A penalty shootout saw the Moroccan giants win 5-4 over the Sea Robbers after both teams scored in extra time. In the penalty shootout, only Lorch missed, but Hotto had numerous chances to score during the first 90 minutes of the game, but losing and missing chances are both a common part of McCarthy's game. 

You know, Ma'buccaneer, I'm really sorry, but that's the how it is. According to McCarthy's tweets, it's all about the "you win some, you lose some." 

You have every right to be pleased with the crew's efforts. They will be victorious, no doubt about it. There is just one way to do things: "Always and Once." 

Asked about Hotto and Lorch by other Pirates fans, McCarthy usually had nice things to say about the two forwards. 

It's going to be a tough game of football tonight. "We can't point fingers," he said when asked about Hotto. "I'm confident the guys gave it all." 

Prior to the start of the new season, this issue must be resolved. 

"Perhaps Lorch was feeling confident after scoring, and he put his hand up to take the penalty kick," he continued. In my opinion, having a player who is confident and ready to take the reins is a good thing.
