Lorch has promised that he wil find his best form at Sundowns after a disappointing ending to his stint at Pirates.
“I promise them that they are going to enjoy my football. I will do my best to add to what the team has already achieved.
“Your support means everything. I am committed to giving my all for the team and our loyal Sandawana supporters,” concluded Lorch.
Having spent nine years at Pirates many will be asking how Lorch will adapt his game to Sundowns.
He will certainly form part of a humming midfield if he finds form.
The move may also help Lorch fight his way back into national team contention.
Lorch missed out on the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations after failing to impress Hugo Broos.
