Former Mamelodi Sundowns playmaker, Percy Tau is aware that many people have had much to say on him currently plying his trade for a second-tier club.
Tau, who transferred to English Premier League outfit, Brighton and Hove Albion, was subsequently sent out on a season-long loan stint to Belgium second division outfit, Royale-Union Saint Gilloise.
Speaking on the South African Football Association’s website, the 24-year-old admitted that he is not bothered by people’s opinions about him plying his trade at a lower league club, despite all the hype around his imminent move to Europe.
“All is well in Belgium. We are on top of the log at the moment. We have had good performances in the cup and league and I believe that we are beginning to get stronger as a team,” Tau told SAFA.
“People will always have opinions on things and they are entitled to that. I am happy with this path I have chosen (agreeing to go on loan to Royale Union Saint-Gilloise) because I have done it before and things worked out in my favour. I once went out on loan to Witbank Spurs and things worked out pretty well for me later on,” he added.
Tau is currently in camp with Bafana Bafana as the South African national team prepares for back-to-back fixtures against Seychelles in the Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers.
