Former Bournemouth striker Tokelo Rantie has been dropped from the South Africa national team after farting in the direction of manager Ephraim Mashaba.
Most players elect for the route of working hard in training or by scoring a bucket-load of goals for their club side, but Rantie, 26, reportedly opted for neither of the above and decided to endear himself to “Shakes” Mashaba by farting on him. Apparently, it hasn’t earned him an unconditional spot in South Africa’s squads for the future.
According to Sowetan, Rantie has now been cut loose by Mashaba after initially being called up for two October fixtures against Burkino Faso and Ghana.
Rantie reportedly avoided representing his nation, instead opting to turn off his phone and return to home to Parys, Free State in South Africa.
Team manager Barney Kujane spent hours trying to locate Rantie, who played 44 league games for Bournemouth and scored five goals, but management have now decided to exclude Rantie from their latest squad.
Seeing as the striker now plays for Turkish side Gençlerbirliği, he’ll have to score a ton of goals to even be considered for the national team after farting on his coach.
In all honesty, it’s hard to imagine Rantie being remembered for anything but this breezy episode.
