Landskrona confirm Ralani exit

Players Abroad

The South African forward, a contemporary of Tokelo Rantie and May Mahlangu at Farouk Khan’s Stars of Africa Academy, has reportedly already said goodbye to his teammates following the team’s relegation on the final day of the Swedish season on Sunday.

Ralani did not play in that game as he sits out with a knee injury that has kept him sidelined since June – a key factor in the club’s eventual relegation to the third-tier.

With his contract expiring in December, Ralani will now be a free agent.

“Surprise has not said anything definitive to us and therefore we have not gone out with any info on our website,” Landskrona manager Patrik Johansson said.

“But even if we want to give him the opportunity to continue his rehab with us, I realise that it will be hard to keep him.”

The 27-year-old Ralani, who like Mahlangu never played in the PSL but went straight to Sweden, has been looked at by a number of top-flight teams in that country and elsewhere in Europe.

But every time he looks as though he is making progress, he gets injured, otherwise it is likely he would have been in the top-flight already.

Ralani almost joined Rantie at Malmo early last year but that move was scuppered by injury.
