Mamelodi Sundowns has terminated their striker Tokelo Rantie’s contract with immediate effect.
The Brazilians said this was a decision they were forced to make following lack of discipline from the former Bafana Bafana player.
The team said today in a statement that the player had gone AWOL for a month and following an internal disciplinary process, the Club terminated his contract.
Yogesh Singh, the Club’s Legal Executive confirmed the termination and said ” The standard at Sundowns is high for a professional footballer and there is a zero-tolerance for ill-discipline. Of course, players are human and we will first go through counseling to correct a player’s behavior but there is a line and when that is crossed we do not compromise the dressing-room for any individual player.”
The 29-year-old Rantie joined Sundowns in September as a free agent but failed to make any official starts for the Brazilians.
