Orlando Pirates forward Zakhele Lepasa has 'disappeared' following a drab performance against Sekhukhune United and the fans looking for him.

The Soweto giants were defeated 2-0 by Sekhukhune United in a Premier Soccer League match at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.

After Lepasa was instrumental in shaking Mamelodi Sundowns defenders in last Saturday’s MTN8 semi-final, first leg match, he joined the likes of Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo and Monnapule Saleng as the toast of Twitter.

But he was turned into a subject of mockery after the Sekhukhune loss.

Known for being active on social media, Lepasa has since been quiet and the fans are hunting for him.

    Plea for Lepasa to leave social media

    Dear Zakhele Lepasa, stay away from social media... leave banter to the fans. It becomes a problem if you're an underperforming player and you tweet more than you score. Please bruh respect us. - @EyeCanSeeHorus.
