Cape Town City chairman John Comitis believes Tokelo Rantie can score for the team. 

Rantie has played 70 minutes with City’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge side last weekend as he works his way back to full fitness.

“Rantie played 70 minutes in our last Diski game (Reserve League),” Comitis was quoted as saying by the IOL.

“It was tough for him, but he’s getting there. He’s lost eight kilograms since he joined us. By the next Cup game (AmaZulu) he should get some minutes, maybe even start. And, by the next league game (also AmaZulu), he should be firing on all cylinders.”

“He (Rantie) is the missing link,” continued the City owner. “He is the player we believe can get behind defences and get us more goals.

“To be honest, Rantie is someone we believe can be the difference between us being a challenger and a struggler.”
