Patosi On The Verge Of Comeback

KSC Lokeren’s South African winger, Ayanda Patosi, is on the verge of making his comeback after a long injury lay-off.

The talented 20-year-old had a fantastic start to his campaign in Belgium last season, scoring nine goals and attracting interest from all over the world, before unfortunately rupturing a cruciate ligament in his knee back in January.

Now, after around seven months on the sidelines, Patosi is close to making his comeback for the club and could feature in their game with Anele Ngcongca’s side, Genk, this weekend in the Belgian Pro League.

Saturday’s game is almost exactly seven months since his last game, against OH Leuven, when he scored and helped his team to a 6-2 victory.

Patosi is being monitored by a whole host of teams in Europe, with Ajax Amsterdam, Chelsea and a number of German Bundesliga teams said to be keeping a close eye on him.

The youngster is judged to be one of the most exciting players to come out of South Africa in recent years and will be hoping to pick up his form from where he left off, when he does return.

If Patosi, who was in the 24-man squad for Lokeren’s recent game against KV Kortrijk but didn’t make the match day squad, can get a few games under his belt, then he may be able to earn himself a call-up for Bafana Bafana’s all important World Cup qualifier next month.
