Lorenzo Gordinho; the forgotten man

Kaizer Chiefs player Lorenzo Gordinho seems to be a forgotten man this season. He was on the field less than 120 minutes and hasn’t started a game since the opening day of The Glamour Boys’ campaign. So, what will happen now with this almost forgotten man? Follow soccer 10 predictions to stay updated on the subject.

At one point, this centre back seemed like one of the brightest young defenders in the country. When he broke into the first team under Stuart Baxter, becoming a regular in Steve Komphela’s early years, everyone had their hopes up for this youngster. However, he was sent out on a loan to Bloemfontein Celtic in a shocking move which startled the fans.

After making their shiny way in the Free State, the Glamour Boys tried to cut short this 25-year-old player’s loan move. However, since his return, he has played only eight Absa Premiership games in the entire season of 2019 to this day.

Recently it was reported that Lorenzo Gordinho was offered to both Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United. It was obvious that he had no future at Naturena and there were some indications that he could be on a way out in January.


The most obvious of all indicators was the situation in the games against Maritzburg United and Stellenbosch during last month. Young Njabulo Blom and Siyabonga Ngezana were both chosen ahead of him during the Erick Mathoho’s suspension despite the fact that he was several years his junior.

There is another thing that might force him to step away and that is his contract. It will expire at the end of the season so Chiefs might get a replacement in his spot. They will rather replace him urgently than lose him for free in July but this decision is still solely in Ernst Middendorp’s hands.
