DISMISSED: Rantie fired by Downs!


Mamelodi Sundowns have terminated their contract with striker Tokelo Rantie, with immediate effect.

FARPost reported earlier today that Rantie’s days were numbered at the Tshwane club.

“The former Bafana Bafana international and Bournemouth striker had gone AWOL for a month and following an internal disciplinary process, the club terminated his contract,” said Sundowns in a statement.

R”antie was signed by the Brazilians after spending a lengthy period of over two and half months on trial at Chloorkop as he was given a chance to regain his fitness and showcase the talent he possesses.

“Despite the faith shown in him by Head Coach Pitso Mosimane and his Technical team, Rantie’s discipline let him down and he failed to grab the opportunity granted to him, especially since the Brazilians were needing a goal-poacher of his calibre, considering that many of the strikers in the squad had been injured at some time or another.”
