Viral video of drunk Lorch the reason he will miss Nedbank Cup Final?

Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Thembinkosi Lorch is injured and will miss the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates, confirmed head coach Rulani Mokwena on Thursday.


Mokwena also suggested that Lorch might have been excluded from the match regardless, due to a viral Instagram video showing him dancing with two women and appearing to be under the influence of alcohol.

“Is he available for Saturday? No, he is not available,”said Mokwena on Thursday.

“When it comes to players you will get no negative word from me. The space when I am open and honest … is when I close my office and have a face to face conversation with them.”

When asked to elaborate on whether Lorch was missing for injury reasons or disciplinary reasons, Mokwena added:

“He is injured, but he has been removed from the group. He got injured against Stellies in Cape Town and might have to undergo surgery,”

The Sundowns head coach added that he had a couple more star players who could be missing for Saturday’s final at Mbombela Stadium.

“I don’t want to give names a couple of very big concerns but let’s see, two more days to try and work some magic there.”
