After weeks of the head-spinning saga between Mamelodi Sundowns and Percy Tau, the club finally broke their silence on the issue on Monday afternoon.
The Chloorkop side released a statement stating that the 2017/18 PSL Player of Season has apologised to club president Patrice Motsepe for disclosing confidential information to the media, and failing to report for pre-season. President Motsepe has since given Tau his blessing on move to Brighton & Hove Albion, who are reportedly interested in the attacking midfielder's services.
Supporters Club took to its Facebook page to ask our members if they think Tau did the right thing in apologising to Masandawana. Here is how some of them responded.
"Yes, he has a contract with the club and I blame his advisers." – Lwazi O Gantule
"Yes, there was a possibility that it could have negatively affected his overseas move." – Aviwe Sgaqa
"That team is a good team, they will not be bullied by any player and teams. That's what people are confused about." – Makhisi Zizwe Dube
"It's not the right decision but a wise one. Remember, we are bounded by contracts and there is always the responsible party that owns the contract. Sundowns own him. So anything that they say, goes. They can even sue him for bad behaviour and breach of contract. Khosi for life." – Thabang Mogale Nape
"Yes, he really did the right thing. Nobody is bigger than Mamelodi Sundowns. He only made things simpler for himself." – Sceptre RockLahood
"Yes, as much as he had a great season in the last campaign, he is still contracted to Sundowns. The fact that there is an EPL outfit looking for his signature doesn't mean that Sundowns must forget protocol. The agent went to the media and disclosed all the details, painting Sundowns in a bad light. That's defamation of character, and it's a punishable offence. I'm glad they finally came to their senses so that this transfer can be dealt with in a civil manner." – Andile Profesor Masiza
