Ex-Bafana Defender On Tau’s Performance Vs Barca

Ex-Bafana Bafana Defender On Percy Tau’s Performance Vs FC Barcelona

By David Kappel - May 20, 2018 12:34 PM @kappilinho

Former Bafana Bafana defender Siphiwe Mkhonza has commented on the performance of Percy Tau, whom he labeled as South Africa’s best player right now, against FC Barcelona.

Mkhonza is currently involved in unearthing talent with the Shield Sbonis’iDiski campaign, scouting talented youngsters all-over the country.

During the Shield camp in Cape Town, Soccer Laduma caught up with the former Bloemfontein Celtic, Golden Arrows and Kaizer Chiefs defender.

He suggested that Tau wasn’t at his best against the LaLiga champions after appearing a bit “star-struck” on Wednesday.

“For me, I felt that Percy Tau, our best player now was now at the level that we expected him to be,” he said.

“Against the best, you need to show that you are the best.

“But I think he was star-struck, maybe also in his application from the mindset. Games like that is where you see what you are made off.”

Tau was part of Pitso Mosimane's starting XI against FC Barcelona and had one massive chance to score for Masandawana but his chipped effort was easily saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Mkhonza, meanwhile, is the head coach in Shield South Africa’s ‘Be the next champion’, that will see one lucky talent win a trip of a lifetime to train at Stamford Bridge and meet Chelsea players as well as earn himself a contract with Orlando Pirates MDC team.

Do you agree with Mkhonza that Tau was star-struck? Have your say in the comments section below.

All dunusa were star-struck. You could see the shambolic errors that led to goals. Even their coach smiled after losing. The level was way above their heads. They are a small team, remember that, so they did okay for their level. Tau is raw material, Pitso has been saying that too.

Looking on a Business perspective, Motsepe benefited lot of people e. g hotels, transport, tourists, hawkers n e.t.c (don't look on R100 000 million spent by Motsepe on one eye..

@masemza123 The 1st sign that you are talking hot air is that you were not at the stadium, only people who don't know or follow soccer think Barcelona is only Messi. the game flow no unnecessary fouls so just seat down if you not sober

@the fat one.,pizza, we should blame our academy in terms of football not Tau. How can our players perform mean while our leaders are fight for leadership @ SAFA now there's another case for Jordan.

Spain league n England league is the best in the world. Therefore, how can we compare our players with the best in the world. Our comparism is like comparing AMG n old 1400 in speed. I'm sundowns supporter

@Jsy no 10, that is normal on anybody who is working with many people but he can't forget that he went to South Africa because looking on Argentina is not much good in terms of Economy compared with Europe where is playing right now.
