Patosi accepts Lokeren decision



Ayanda Patosi says he accepts the decision of his Belgian club Lokeren not to allow him to travel for Saturday’s international friendly against Malawi.

Patosi received his first call-up from national team coach Gordon Igesund for the clash, but Lokeren have a game on Friday night against Kortrijk and also play on Boxing Day.

"I was happy with my selection, but I fully understand the viewpoint of Lokeren when they tell me that I cannot miss the Kortrijk game," Patosi told Belgian publication HLN. "It is a pity of course, but I understand the position of Lokeren. Hopefully my chance will come again."

Patosi is slated to join the Bafana camp on December 28 and will have just a few training sessions before Igesund announces his final squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations two days later.

"I hope I do well in that camp. And who knows, maybe I can convince the coach," he says.

Patosi has netted six goals in 20 starts for Lokeren and has emerged as one of the stars of the Belgian Jupiler League this season.
