Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says that he will easily recommend former Bournemouth striker Tokelo Rantie to any club who want to sign him.
Rantie has been training with the Brazilians during the off-season, with a view of securing a deal at Chloorkop.
Mosimane spoke to the media and advised Tokelo not rush to get a deal before the transfer window closes at the end of August.
The 28-year-old striker is a free agent, and was on the books of Cape Town City last season under the mentorship of Benni McCarthy, though he failed to crack the nod.
According to Kickoff.com, ‘Jingles’ said, “I said we should allow TK to go through the process and we should not put him under pressure and he should not put himself under pressure, because if he says ‘are you signing me or not?, then I’ll say ‘I’m not sure’. Why? Because the guy has spent two years without playing football.
“He is looking good and he has looked after himself. I think you saw his physique that he shed a lot of weight. That shows he is serious. This is a guy who was playing English Premier League, where Percy [Tau] does not even have a chance to play. It’s not easy at Sundowns because he is up against Maboe, Affonso, sometimes we play Phaka [Mahlambi] as a striker, sometimes we play Thapelo or Vila as striker.
“I also said to people who are helping him, if there’s any team that’s ready to sign him now, I’d easily recommend that Tokelo Rantie is the guy. But he needs time, support…he needs game time. And I don’t know if Sundowns will give him so many chances to play.”
It remains to be seen where the Bafana Bafana international will be playing his football in 2019/20 season.
