Rantie Joins Sundowns

Tokelo Rantie has become the latest addition to the Mamelodi Sundowns squad and joins the club on a three-year contract.

His signing will boost coach Pitso Mosimane’s attacking options and strengthen the team overall given his experience at both local and international level.

Rantie, who celebrated his 29th birthday earlier this week, is a former Bournemouth forward having moved to the English Premier League six years ago for a reported club record fee after an agreement with Swedish outfit, Malmo for his services.

He joins Sundowns as a free agent, however.

The speedy striker has also been on the books of Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City, with his most recent stint abroad being at Gençlerbirliği in the Turkish Super Lig.

Rantie will also be looking to hit the ground running and show his prowess in front of goal, like he did for Bafana Bafana since first making his national team debut in 2012 against Gabon at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

He was also part of Bafana’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations squad in Equatorial Guinea under then coach Shakes Mashaba and has 12 goals in 40 appearances to date for the national team.
