Patosi scored seven goals for Lokeren last season, attracting attention from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, before having to undergo an operation on his knee, and he now says that he’s back to 100% fitness.
Speaking to the Siya crew he said, “I’m feeling good and very happy. This shows that all my hard work is paying off now, I had a difficult seven months with my injury but I’m 100% fit now and it’s going to be a great feeling to play among all the other quality players.”
Patosi is just one of a number of youngsters in the Bafana squad named for the game against Morocco. Ronwen Williams, Kgosi Ntlhe, Siyanda Xulu, Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly and Patosi are all aged 21 or younger.
