Tau Opens Up On Move & New Bafana Bafana Role

Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau has opened up on his new role in the team ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, as well as his move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Tau has been named as vice-captain of the team, while SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams will wear the armband. Bafana will take on Zimbabwe in their opening Group C qualifier at the National Sports Stadium in Zimbabwe on Friday, September 3, before taking on Ghana at FNB Stadium three days later.

"It happens every time during the transfer period where there is media coverage. It happens to be my case at the moment, but I am glad it's over now. I am extremely happy with everything and I am happy to be part of the team and I am looking forward to the World Cup qualifiers. It's an exciting time. I am happy with my move to Al Ahly and I am just in a good place," Tau told the media in Soweto on Monday, August 30.

"Our roles don't change much. Even though there's a title to it, I don't think it changes much. He (Williams) has been a senior player in his team and I have been a senior player in team, so I don't think much is going to change." 

The attacker has been a key player for the national team in recent years and while others seem to have fallen away from the plans of the new technical team, the Al Ahly forward remains a key component in the side.

"It's an honour to be here. It's the first time working with the coach and I am looking forward to it. The work continues. We just have to get down and work. I think it's going to be a nice time to get to know everyone. It's a new team and I feel the guys who are here have been doing well in the PSL and abroad and it's time for us to get together and work as a team.
