The Mamelodi Sundowns coach says he is disappointed by Tokelo Rantie failing to follow the rules set by the club.

Rantie’s contract was terminated by Sundowns over the player’s off the field antics.

It is reported that Rantie missed training sessions without informing the club.

Sundowns showed faith in Rantie by giving him a contract after he was without the club for two seasons.

“It’s shame about Tokelo, he is missing the party,” said Pitso Mosimane on SuperSportTV.

“In an open game like this, Tokelo should be running and scoring the goals to get his confidence back. Like Aubrey Ngoma, we don’t want to play him when it is difficult. We want to play him when it’s open.

“Tokelo is a sad case. We cannot tolerate it if you’re ill-disciplined, then you cannot play at Sundowns. We have got too many games and too much travelling to deal with.

“So, we cannot police anyone and if training sessions disturb his life, then he needs to choose something different that is better than coming to training – let him do that… that’s it!”
