Rantie To Make Dream Return To PSL?

Tokelo Rantie could make a dream return to the Premier Soccer League this weekend.

Cape Town City completed the signing of the former Orlando Pirates striker this month, snapping up his services after the player was out of action for several months.

Rantie, who was previously on the books of Genclerbirligi Ankara in Turkey, has been eager to reach full fitness, with Head Coach Benni McCarthy revealing that the fitness team may have pushed him a little bit too much.

“So I think us pushing him a little bit, so now he had a couple of setbacks, his hamstring is a little bit tight so we don’t want to push, we just reduced his workload and see how he responds,” McCarthy previously told the media. 

However, the head coach added that a late fitness test would be conducted on the player.

Rantie will in no doubt travel to Durban with the Cape Town City side today, as he will be hopeful of being present when his team lifts the MTN8 trophy. 

Should the striker be eligible to make his debut for City this weekend and they go on to be crowned 2018 MTN8 champions, it could be a dream return for the 28-year-old to Mzansi’s top-flight football.
