Orlando Pirates have confirmed that both Justin Shonga and Thembinkosi Lorch were dropped from their squad “following a breach of the team’s protocols.”

Pirates are in action on Tuesday evening against Mamelodi Sundowns as the ABSA Premiership gets underway for the first time since March.

“All players have been educated, and are constantly reminded, of their responsibilities as public servants and role models,” said a statement released on the club website

“It is our role and duty to ensure that all members of this organisation are fully compliant and aware of the measures that are in place.  

“Both players will be afforded the opportunity to return to play once the disciplinary processes have been finalised.

“Mr Lorch and Mr Shonga will also be required to undergo two Covid-19 tests, which both must be negative, as the BSE protocols dictate, before they resume any club activities,” the statement concluded.

Pirates are currently third on the Absa Premiership log.
