Thembinkosi Lorch is the best soccer player in South Africa - well, at least according to Orlando Pirates coach Rulani Mokwena.
Mokwena glorified Lorch as the best player in the country despite the midfielder getting a red card in the league match against Polokwane City at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Bucs coach has so much faith in his player that he called anyone out who wanted to argue with him.
“If someone wants to argue with me‚ then we can argue‚ because I talk stats‚ maybe with others it's an opinion‚” said Mokwena.
According to the Sowetan, Mokwena added that Lorch has the Footballer of the Season award at his home and despite everything, he's still the best in the Mzansi.

Briefly.co.za learned that although Mokwena sees Lorch as the best, he does believe the player deserved the red card he received.
"We got the red card‚ deservedly I think‚” said Mokwena adding: “I think it is a red card for retaliation."
Mokwena said they had a chat with Lorch about the situation and he knows it was unacceptable.
