Pitso Mosimane has praised Percy Tau for his work ethic and maintained that’s what has pushed him all the way to Uefa Champions League football.
The Bafana Bafana striker made his debut in the world’s biggest club football competition earlier last week for his Belgian team, Club Brugge – and it came against Real Madrid at the iconic Santiago Bernabéu.
Brugge were 2-0 up at halftime, with Tau providing an assist for the first goal, though Madrid did come from behind to draw the Group A fixture.
“The boy is a monster. I have never coached a player like that. I thought Keagan Dolly was a monster, but Percy is also a monster. Those boys they put their head down and they put in a shift,” Mosimane told journalists.
He said he was filled with joy when he saw him walk down the tunnel to lead the Brugge attack and face Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
“Every match they (Tau and Dolly) take it seriously and they are disciplined and they don’t miss training sessions. When you miss training sessions at Sundowns you know what happens, we take you out because we don’t have time for that. We don’t have time for people like that. He is at Club Brugge now, which is much better and playing Champions League,” Mosimane said.
