When To Expect Rantie's Downs Debut

Pitso Mosimane has called on fans and media alike to be patient with striker Tokelo Rantie, who is yet to make his Mamelodi Sundowns debut after signing a three-year contract with the club last week.

The coach was asked whether the former Bournemouth forward would be available for tomorrow’s Absa Premiership fixture at home against Maritzburg United and he responded by urging everyone to not “put him under fire”.

“Is it a pressing issue? Yes, he is available and so is Ali Meza and Lebohang Maboe. Let’s not put too much pressure on Tokelo, he hasn’t played football for two years. Don’t you think we should give him a chance – when it’s a 3-0 or something like that? He needs to catch up,” Mosimane told journalists.

“Unless you want to put him under fire and then you say he’s not good. We might need him for Bafana because we need another two or three (strikers). Kermit (Erasmus) is coming up, we have Lebo Mothiba in France and Percy (Tau) is there. Tokelo must still catch a few friendly games here and there. There is a queue.”

Rantie watched from the stands on Wednesday night when Sundowns were booted out of the MTN8 semifinals by SuperSport United and he will be itching to get back into action soon, but Mosimane says he has to wait his turn.
