Masandawana Fan: 'All Sundowns Really Cared About Other Than Tau'
Default

Following the latest developments in the Mamelodi Sundowns/Percy Tau saga, supporters continue to share their views.

It appears the dust has settled between Tau and his employers following reports that the attacking midfielder apologised to the club for his seemingly unimpressive behaviour.

Tau recently went AWOL after several reports emerged that the 24-year-old was not pleased with the club withholding his European dream move. This resulted in the player not pitching up for pre-season training, among other things.

However, the Absa Premiership champions have since released a statement, with president Patrice Motsepe giving the "Young Lion" the green light to finalise his move to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Supporters Club member Liandra Kekeletso Moleya has jumped to the defence of the 2017/18 PSL Player of the Season, insisting that Tau should not have apologised.

"Tau is a good player and a well-disciplined one too. He has been well-behaved throughout in the seasons he spent at Sundowns. He played major role in Sundowns' success," she said.

"They club was supposed to allow him to fulfil his dreams without any hassle. The price tag they put on him appeared as though he is the club's prisoner or slave. It showed that all they really cared about was Tau helping the club to win more trophies and not him to fulfil his dreams.

"Look at what happened to Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly's price tags. Khama Billiat saw it early and ran away. Had Tau thrown in the towel on this issue, he would have ended up like Teko Modise.

"Sundowns will eat you like sugar cane and chew you out when there's no sugar left in you."

@Don_Corlion 1st you don't use your small maths of selling sweets to deal with a team that trade on pounds, secondly you don't get to tell Sundowns how to value their players I mean you don't know your own value. seat down

@montjos People are Jealous they are not commenting on sense its just a jealousy they have on sundowns, they can't beat sundowns so gossip and say anything bad to feel better. Sundowns win, sundowns sell players overseas and sundowns bring the best talent so find something bad

Nonsensical article, the author is high on something 80 million rand is a slave price, this is rand not even euros from a team in England that trade in pounds. stop being jealous and lacking in sense, football is a business sundowns invest in these players "them sharing every winning" & having best bonus system if someone want them must paid period

@magents02 he is one of you and stating the facts. To support the team doesn't mean you have to agree even to the wrong things done by your team. I agree with him totally. Tau shouldn't have apologized. If Motsepe didn't intervene, Tau would remain a Downs prisoner and this started back then to Gaxa, Mphela and others. Your team management must also think about players not only the team. They are all together with players, Motsepe employees.

I totally disagree with the statement made by Moleya. We shouldn't look only at what appeared to be an issue here. We should look at matters from were it arise. Respect matters as it stands bcz Tau has a contract to adhere. The club had the best interest about the player. Irrespective of the issue wanting to keep him at the club. That's the misunderstanding ppl turn to look at regarding Tau's issue. We mustn't under sell ourselves. That's the reason behind Tau's story with the club.

Thanks for Tau and his business representative for the apology.Sundowns fc is an institution where they entered in the PSL to develop their brand and they pay all people who are joining the brand. Anyone who come to Sundowns fc for the player must be prepared to pay we cannot continue to give players like Black Friday event. Whoever knock the door must be prepared to pay for our players. Firstly for Tau to wear that Jersey was a dream come true and it's through FC Sundowns that any player can meet the merits of playing overseas. We have a lot of players who seem to be better than Tau but the platform that they're in is invisible. It's only when you play for FC Sundowns where you can play with passion because you want to market yourself in a global Stage.If you want to market your products you have to pay your producer.For the people of lsreal to enter Canan they have paid a lot some with their lives .Dreams doesn't come cheap. Quality football can only be played in Sundowns and Brazil, football with some spicy in it.
