Why Dolly Thinks Now Is The Time For Tau

Keagan Dolly Thinks The Time Is Right For Mamelodi Sundowns' Percy Tau

By Joe Crann - May 25, 2018 01:45 PM @YesWeCrann
“You could see from our academy days that there was something a bit special…”
 
Keagan Dolly has known Percy Tau for a long time having grown up together due to the small age gap between the two, and the Montpellier man thinks that now is the right time for his former teammate to take the next step up.
 
Tau has been in scintillating form in the Absa Premiership this season and is in the running for numerous awards – including Footballer of the Season – at next week’s PSL Awards ceremony. 
 
 
Dolly, who joined Montpellier in Ligue 1 last year, says that he’s proud of how his friend is progressing through the ranks in South Africa.
 
He told the Siya crew, “I’m extremely happy for him because I know how hard he’s worked since we were teenagers. I’ve known Percy for a very long time, we played together at Sundowns’ academy, and it’s always good to see friends who started with you at the bottom doing well.
 
 
“We used to kill defenders in the Castle and Vodacom leagues back then! You really could see that he is special, and I always used to admire what he does on the ball.”  
 
Meanwhile, with rumours swirling around regarding Tau’s future in Mzansi, Dolly said, “It’s definitely the right time for him to go. I left when I was 24 and I still feel that I was a little old, because this side you have boys as young as 18 playing week in week out. So for me, this is the perfect time for him to go while he's still performing well and has all the confidence.” 
 
 
Where? You might ask… The Bafana Bafana international – who ended the season on a high in France, breaking into Montpellier’s starting XI more often – reckons that the world is at his compatriot’s feet as he enters into the last year of his contract with Masandawana.
 
“I believe that Percy can make it anywhere he wants to go to,” he said, “He’s always had the hunger to achieve and he’s always been humble. I think with all the experience he has picked up with Sundowns and Bafana playing internationally, it has prepared him well for the bigger picture. 
 
 
“I think France could be a good move for him because we have a few players here that are doing well, so they kind of know about South Africa. Also, with his technical ability and pace, they like that here in France and he’s quite strong on the ball so he’d fit in perfectly.”
 
Dolly is currently enjoying his off-season before returning to France ahead of the 2018/19 to begin pre-season.

@dellah YES MAYBE, BUT IF HE IS AS TALENTED AS WE SAY HE IS THEN THE TEAM THAT NEEDS HIM WILL PAY FOR HIM, JUST LIKE DOLLY'S TEAM.

@Gustin Sirino in champions league he was not leading the team. The team was led by BDC most especially khama billiat. Tau hasn't led sundowns to CCL star.

He should go and try his luck in Europe and se where it takes him, He mustn't be rooted in the PSL like Khune and Tshabalala

@Kunyanya.T Again jealousy kills, to lead a team like sundowns not every player can do, the guy has taken same form to national team, some so called stars don't make it at downs, downs has won league, CCL and super cup with this boy.... keep being negative!!!

Downs is not a development team. If you want their player you must ready to pay
