Former Moroka Swallows coach Zeca Marques says Percy Tau can be proud of lifting the Belgian Pro League title with Club Brugge.

The 26-year-old striker made 18 league appearances for Brugge this season, scored three goals, and made four assists to help his team to the championship.

Despite the fact that the season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, Marques reckons Tau deserves to feel proud of the achievement nonetheless, as their lead was virtually insurmountable.

"It's a tricky one because I'm sure coaches and players want to win the title under the confines of the game, what we call a fair play where you play right until the end of the season," Marques told Goal.

"That's what people want to do and you're right, it's a question of pride. This achievement definitely makes a difference in his career. Having said that, with 11 games to go and 15 points ahead at the top, only a catastrophe would avoid the league being won.

"It's a difficult one [situation because of the pandemic] and I've been following a number of the leagues in Europe and some teams are relegated and that makes it even worse.

"They've [Brugge] done well, they were consistent and they fought for it. They did well throughout the season and Percy can be proud of this achievement.

"He has done well in the league and in the [Uefa] Champions League against the likes of Real Madrid and PSG, the fact that he played at that stage is an achievement on its own - a massive achievement.

"Obviously he would have loved to win the league under normal circumstances but it's done and he must be proud of the gold medal."
