Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says the club have handed a trial to former Cape Town City striker Tokelo Rantie.

Rantie was with the Citizens last season but was released without playing a game after concerns arose regarding his personal life and level of conditioning.

The 28-year-old has had a rocky career since leaving Bournemouth in 2016 for Turkey's Genclerbirligi.

Mosimane told reporters that the Brazilians were assessing the forward though it was too soon to say if a contract offer would be on the table.

He told KickOff: "It's still early to say if we would sign him, we have given him a chance to train.

"Everybody deserves a chance and we believe we must give him a chance to play and train and see how it goes.

"There is no pressure. He must not think about signing. He must just train and if he are happy, we will tell you."

Sundowns on Wednesday confirmed the signing of tall Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso as they add further strength to the striking department.
