Tau Admits To Pressure From Fans
Percy Tau Unmoved In Aiming For Success With Mamelodi Sundowns
While unmoved in aiming for more success with Mamelodi Sundowns this season, Percy Tau has admitted to being under pressure from the fans' expectations.
The Sundowns star, who has been one of the most impressive and consistent players in the PSL this season, says he is under pressure from fans who want him to win individual accolades.
Tau has been tipped as a candidate to win this year’s PSL Player of the Season award. However, the 23-year-old says his focus is on helping Sundowns achieve success by winning trophies, including the Absa Premiership title.
On Soccer Laduma Radio’s Big Interview, Tau has spoken about the pressure that comes with being tipped to be the PSL’s Player of the Season.

“The fans are putting too much pressure on me. I am only really, really looking so much on winning the league. If I can win the Champions League I will also be happy, and the Nedbank,” said Tau.
“The focus is on what I have now. I try always to focus on that, but the fans also demand something else - which is the Player of the Season award.
“We’ll see about that one, but I’m really just looking forward to having the PSL medal if it happens, or the Nedbank medal or the Champions League,” concluded the star.
