Senegal Legend Claims Tau Is More Talented Than Liverpool Stars…

El Hadji Diouf Says Sundowns' Percy Tau Has More Talent Than Mo Salah

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 17, 2018 07:30 AM

Former Senegalese international, El Hadji Diouf, says Percy Tau shouldn’t be in South Africa, and that he’s got more talent than two of Liverpool’s biggest stars.

Diouf visited SAFA House on Monday as part of the Moroccan 2026 FIFA World Cup bid representatives, and spoke highly of the Mamelodi Sundowns attacker, claiming that he has more talent than both Sadio Mané and red hot attacker, Mo Salah, who have scored 57 goals between them so far this season.

Tau has been in great form for Masandawana this season, especially in recent months, and has played a vital role in making sure that Pitso Mosimane’s side remain on top of the Absa Premiership table going into the final few games. His performances, and 13 goals, have seemingly not gone unnoticed.

Diouf, who has a long rivalry with Liverpool and once called Reds legend, Steven Gerrard ‘jealous’ and ‘egotistical’, saying that ‘he doesn't care about anyone else’.

According to SAFA’s official website, regarding Tau, the 37-year-old said, “I spoke to Percy Tau and asked him what he was still doing in the PSL. The boy is good to play for any team in the world including Real Madrid or any of England’s top side. The boy is quality… Tau has no reason to still be playing in South Africa. He is more talented than Sadio Mane or even Mo Salah.”

He also said, “South African players play the best football but need that international experience one only gets by playing in big European leagues. I always ask myself why there is no South African playing either in England or Spain yet the country has the most talented players. They are too comfortable playing at home; which is wrong.”

Do you think Tau is more talented than Mané and Salah?

Let Tau go to those big leagues in Europe and prove himself. He is too hot in the Psl. Let's see him amongst the best in the world.

@chiefs is useless, Tau is a Team Player Mate. He is not only scoring goals, he also create them. As for being adjudged offside 15 times, I don't know how accurate you are.

@305majola Tau is far better than Khama at same age, Kham is like Cristiano deadly and Percy like Messi team player, he track back, plays better combination and accomplish passer than Billiat

To be honest Tau is really a good player to watch, but this Hadji guy took it a bit too far by comparing him with Sala and Mane. I would love to see him plying his trade abroad and in the big leagues,where we could be able to watch him

Unfortunately we can't compare Tau with the stars you just mentioned Tau plays in the PSL which is below par from EPL but he is good he can fit well with Monaco.

Hahaha this is a joke. Tau is a good player, but is he more talented than all of the guys playing in pls? My answer will be no. In my opinion khama billiat is more talented than tau.

Some people are just pure stupids more especially klonkies like @Buccaneer4lyf they think to be a good player you must score a lot of goals , they don't recognise the players around the scorer as big players , the players who create those scoring chances . Tau doesn't just score he creates scoring chances for his teammates
