Why Rantie Should Return To The PSL

Premier League striker Tokelo Rantie's future is very much uncertain – here is why the former Orlando Pirates man should return to Mzansi.

The 25-year-old was not registered for Bournemouth's squad for the second half of last season, which led many to speculate that he could be very far down coach Eddie Howe's pecking order.

Rantie featured on just six occasions for his team during their 2015/16 campaign, with just three of those appearances coming in the EPL. Should he not return to South Africa?

The Bafana Bafana international has been linked with his former Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs, but it has been reported that Amakhosi might be unwilling to meet the player's demands.

Rantie is believed to be looking for R8 million a year, while Chiefs are reportedly only ready to spend R6 million per annum for the striker. But should it be about money?

The forward has gone a whole season without regular first team football, and a campaign similar to the previous one could be detrimental to his career, especially if he wants to retain his place in Ephraim "Shakes" Mashaba's South Africa squad.

A return to the PSL could see Rantie get back to his very best, and we know he is a player of extreme quality who needs to be playing week in and week out!

What do you think the future holds for Rantie?
