Benni McCarthy Defends Lorch and Hotto after Orlando Pirates' Loss in CAF Confed Final

Thembinkosi Lorch and Deon Hotto's missed opportunities against RS Berkane in the CAF confederations cup finals have been defended by Benni McCarthy

The Moroccan team RS Berkane defeated the Pirates despite dominating the game. 

Many chances were squandered by players like Hotto that could have given the club a significant win in normal time without requiring extra time to be played. 

When Lorch scored the equalizer for his team to force penalties, he made headlines. However, Lorch missed his penalty. 

As a counter-argument, McCarthy believes that both losing and missing opportunities are a part of the game. 

"So be it for Ma'buccaneer. Wins and losses are a part of life "Ex-Pirates striker penned the message. 

McCarthy also had something to say to the Pirates after seeing how hard they worked to advance in the CAF CC this year. 

In addition to telling them to be proud of their efforts, he also emphasized that they would pay up. 

People should not point fingers at Lorch and Hotto because football is a harsh game, McCarthy said.
