Get to know more about Lorch

Entertainment caught up with Thembinkosi Lorch, the Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana winger who shares the five things we do not know about him.

1. My surname is a Xhosa surname. They wrote it wrong at Home Affairs. The correct way to write it is L - O - D - G - E. 

2. At School I went as far as grade 12 and my favourite subject was Economics.

3. My favourite car is Mercedes Benz G-Class, but I'm OK with my Toyota Tazz because it doesn't have a lot of things. It's a simple car and I like it.

4. My favourite dish is African food morogo and dikgorolo, because my parents raised me with that kind of food, so I still like it.

5. I don't have a friend in football but I have a mentor, Vuyo Mere. Ja eish, uVuyo uphuma ekasi lami (he is from my township), like the same street. Their house is three houses away from ours. So I grew looking up to him, learning a lot from him while he was still at Sundowns and Hellenic. By that time I was still at school so, I learned a lot from him hence I'm saying he is not my friend but my grootman. We talk about a lot of things, he advises me about football and life.
