Thembinkosi Lorch hasn't been the same ever since winning the player of the season award. His performance has dropped dramatically. We all know Lorch for scoring goals and providing those defence splitting passes. Since dropping his form Orlando Pirates has not been the same.

1. Injuries

Thembinkosi Lorch has been threatened by a number of injuries in the 2020/21 season and even this season. This has caused him in terms of performance. Being in and out of injuries is draining for a player because one moment you are on form the next moment you have to start afresh. Injuries have contributed a great deal to Lorch's performance.

2. Move failure

In the 19/20 season Lorch was on fire he was unstoppable. Everybody believed he was going to secure a new team abroad. He also wanted to move as there was great interest in him from foreign countries. He desperately wanted to leave because for some time he was not training with the team. The move failed for whatever reasons and ever since he has not been himself mentally and in terms of focus

3. Personal life

After his arrest for assault last year September, Lorch's performance turned for the worst. This issue has also contributed to his performance as we know without mental fitness or your mind in the right place you can't perform.
