Mamelodi Sundowns star Thembinkosi Lorch still needs to meet the expectations of the defending PSL champions, says former midfielder Hlompho Kekana.

Lorch is still trying to impress coach Rhulani Mokwena after his January 2024 switch from Orlando Pirates, but Kekana says the 30-year-old needs to be better.

According to iDiski Times, Kekana says Lorch is not confident in front of goal, while Sundowns could look to replace him by signing Orlando Pirates forward Tshegofatso Mabasa.

Kekana said:

"I don’t think he’s confident enough in front of goal up to so far since he Mamelodi Sundowns. He’s got two goals, and that’s not good enough for a player like Lorch.”

Masandawana fans took to social media to agree with their former skipper, feeling Lorch still needs to deliver for the defending PSL champions.

Pumla Soyamba agreed with Kekana:

"Very true. He isn't himself there."
