Clock Ticking On Tau’s Bafana Fate

Brighton & Hove Albion attacker Percy Tau will have to wait at least a week to learn if he will be able to represent Bafana Bafana in the final AFCON qualifiers this month.

This comes after Tau’s manager Graham Potter told the media that they will be seeking clarity from FIFA on whether to allow Tau and his Seagulls teammates to leave for international duty.

“I think we are going to speak about it over the next few days and the upcoming week maybe with a bit more clarity from FIFA or whoever else can give us that information. But we will take the decision as a club, which is right for the players and for us and what we can do,” Potter told the media regarding his side’s international contingent.

According to the current COVID-19 guidelines, players arriving from red-listed travel ban countries -including South Africa, state that individuals have to spend 10 days in quarantine upon arrival.

If he does make the trip to South Africa, it will mean that Tau would be unavailable for Brighton's away match to Manchester United on 3 April, but could return in time for Everton depending on when he departs local shores.

Tau has played just 17 minutes for Brighton since January, when he featured against Leeds United, but since then, the former Mamelodi Sundowns star has been an unused substitute in Brighton's last seven games in the Premier League.
