Percy Tau: People Will Always Have Opinions

Percy Tau Has Silenced The Critics On His Move To Belgium

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 10, 2018 10:48 AM

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.

We need to start being honest about you Percy... You are good, no doubt about that. But the truth is you are way behind Dolly in terms of an overall understanding of the game... You are horribly wasteful and you're decision making leaves a lot to be desired. I really hope your're stint in Belgium improves your game because it leaves a lot to be desired. Mahlambi didn't play because of you and he is better than you and all because we are now forced to play you because you secured a move overseas.... 17 corners? You can say what you will but to be honest I don't believe your hype.

It is not always easy to get what you want to be in football, you sometimes need to take a short left. Tau is getting much needed game minutes to build on what he is known for and what he was transferred to Europe in the first place, instead of getting there and sit on the bench and getting less minutes on the field. i admire your positive attitude boy, keep it up it will get you every where.
