Ayanda Patosi completed his return from injury last night as he played his first 90 minutes since last December, as he turned out for KSC Lokeren in the Belgian Cup.
The talented winger underwent surgery at the beginning of the year after sustaining damage to his knee ligaments while playing for the Belgian club, putting his promising career on ice for a number of months.

However, late last month Patosi came on with 10 minutes to go as ‘Tricolores’ took on KV Oostende, following months of rehabilitation.
Patosi, who has been watched by a number of big European clubs such as Chelsea, managed to make it through the whole game as Lokeren went on to win 1-0, securing their place in the next round of the competition.
The former Africa Soccer Developments man will now be hoping to build on this performance and regain the rich vein of form he expressed last season, when he scored seven goals for the club, while claiming six assists.
Are you looking forward to seeing Patosi in the Bafana setup?
