‘He Went Through All The Challenges As A Footballer’

Bafana Bafana head coach, Molefi Ntseki reminded everyone that Percy Tau had to endure some challenges to be where he is today.

After being promoted to the Mamelodi Sundowns first team from their youth structures, Tau was subsequently sent out on loan to Witbank Spurs in the National First Division for six months before being re-called to the Chloorkop-based club.

After re-joining the Brazilians, Tau then went on to help Sundowns lift the Absa Premiership trophy, the CAF Champions League and Super Cup.

Leaving Mzansi to join up with Brighton and Hove Albion and sent out on loan to two different clubs since, the 25-year-old now finds himself plying his trade in the UEFA Champions League, coming up against Europe’s elite, such as Real Madrid.

“I don’t think we should start looking at Bafana Bafana, we should also start looking at where he comes from – how he went through all the challenges as a footballer, remember Tau had to go on loan to play in the first division and had to come back to Sundowns and he did very well. In that year they won the league and Champions League. Remember how he conducted himself when they won the Champions League?” Ntseki told SAFA.

“We saw him moving to Europe and I know him to be a very cool headed person, someone who wants to achieve more and I was not surprised to see him do well when he arrived in Belgium in his first season. 

“Moving in his second season at Club Brugge, he did very well for himself and for the country, he is our ambassador, if any of our players are doing well in Europe, it benefits the country and all the players from his generation,” he added.
