South Africa have dismissed former Bournemouth star Tokelo Rantie from the national team after he farted at boss Ephraim Mashaba. The 26-year-old allegedly dropped his trousers and farted during the last international break. Rantie, who joined the Cherries in 2013 for a club-record £2.5million, was immediately kicked out of the training camp. And his international future now looks to be at an end despite being in good form for new Turkish club Genclerbirligi.
Mashaba had previously refused to reveal why Rantie had been sent home, saying: “We thought in the spirit of encouraging team spirit and discipline, we must release Rantie from camp.” But a local South African article claims the striker completely overstepped the mark when he let forth some unwanted gas at his manager. It read: “Tokelo Rantie pulled down his pants and let one rip in the direction of Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba a few days ago in one of the most bizarre acts of obscenity ever seen in the national team. “The flatulence was so suffocating that the putrid stench continues to hover over the team like a dark cloud.”
