Apataki Wants SA Return
29 November 2012
Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Patrick Apataki is wanting a return to South African football after completing a season in the DR Congo’s top division, the Linafoot.
Apataki turned out for DC Motema Pembe last season and contributed significantly to the team’s success, finishing third on the log behind giants TP Mazembe and AS Vita Club, respectively.
The striker informed the Siya crew that his contract with the side has come to an end and that he is eyeing a move back to Mzansi.
“I am here in my country for now but I may be coming to South Africa because I’m looking for a team. My contract has just finished this side and I will be happy to return to Johannesburg.
“I played for one year with the team. I don’t have a contract with anyone right now and I would like to go back to South Africa if it is possible,” said Apataki.
The DR Congo man has played for a number of clubs during his career, including AmaZulu, Dynamos and FC Cape Town. In addition Apataki has played in France, Tunisia, and Turkey.
