• Tau scoops Player of the Year award in Belgium

    Percy Tau

    Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau has been named the Proximus League Player of the Season in his first season with second division side Union Saint-Gilloise.

    Tau picked up the Absa Premiership Footballer of the Season last year after a stunning season for Mamelodi Sundowns which aided the 24-year-old in sealing a move to English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.

    Tau, however, could not secure a work permit for the UK due to Bafana’s lowly ranking and was subsequently farmed out on loan to Belgian second tier team Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

    The striker reportedly struggled to adapt initially but put his head down and worked hard and has been richly rewarded for a stunning debut season in Europe where he has featured in 34 matches across all competitions for his club, scoring 13 goals while also providing 13 assists.

    Tau would be hoping to take a step up in his career next season but will first have to focus on playing for his country in the upcoming 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt next month.

    The former Sundowns man will be looking to continue his fine form in green and gold and help guide Bafana to a successful Afcon which could inturn impact where he ends up playing his football next season.
