Patrick Zoundi (born 19 July 1982) is a Burkinabé footballer who plays for 1. FC Saarbrücken in the Regionalliga Südwest.

Career[edit]

Zoundi began his career in the youth academy of Planète Champion. In the summer of 2000, he moved to Europe, joining the Belgian club KSC Lokeren. After five years in Belgium, he signed a contract with Ethnikos Asteras F.C. in Greece. After only one season with Ethnikos he signed for FC Asteras Tripolis, playing two seasons while playing 41 league matches and scoring seven goals.[1]

In July 2008, he signed with Panserraikos F.C.[2] in the Greek Super League,[3] before he signed a two-year contract with Fortuna Düsseldorf following a successful trial.[4] He played as striker for Düsseldorf, but could also play in the right midfield or as a right winger.[5]

He then played for 1. FC Union Berlin before he moved to MSV Duisburg in 2013. He joined 1. FC Saarbrücken a year later.

International career[edit]

Zoundi was a member of the Burkinabé 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished bottom of their group in the first round of competition, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarterfinals. He has played twelve caps for his country.[6] and represented Burkina Faso at the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Championship in New Zealand.[7]
