Tau Talks Belgium, Body & Bafana

It’s been a busy season for Percy Tau as he jetted back and forth between Belgium and South Africa, but the talented Bafana Bafana star is still raring to go in Egypt. 
 
 
While Stuart Baxter hasn’t named his final squad for the Africa Cup of Nations that begins later this month, Tau’s name is likely to be one of the first names on the head coach’s list when he’s deciding which 23 will be making the trip to North Africa.
 
Tau, who had an impressive campaign as he got 13 goals and 13 assists in all competitions for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in the Belgian second division, will be seen as one of Bafana’s key players when they go up against Ivory Coast, and he says that he’s ready for the challenge despite his busy year.
 
Speaking to SAFA as the team continue to train at Steyn City in Johannesburg, the 25-year-old said, “The most important thing is to look after yourself. My body has become adjusted to this rigorous schedule of professional football… It has been a good year for me in Belgium, what I have done and what the team has done; lots of positives. 
 
 
“It took a while for me to adjust in the new environment finding new friends etc. I was at Mamelodi Sundowns for seven years, and the team had become my home… Going to Belgium meant finding new friends, but that is what it is like in the football world.” 
 
Bafana will shortly leave for Dubai where they will play a friendly against Ghana before they fly out to Cairo later this month.
