Mosimane: Tau will play abroad

Cape Town - Percy Tau has the potential to play in Europe and will eventually leave Mamelodi Sundowns, according to head coach Pitso Mosimane.

Mosimane says Tau will follow in the footsteps of midfielders Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly, who both moved abroad, after an impressive breakthrough campaign with the Brazilians.

The Bafana Bafana international was highly regarded by the Masandawana technical team as he progressed through the development ranks, but his career was at a standstill last season. 

However, after a short stint in the National First Division with Witbank Spurs, the 22-year-old  forward was recalled by Mosimane and has been an ever-present figure under his tutelage ever since.

The loss of Dolly and various injuries forced Tau to be deployed in an unfamiliar false No.9 role this campaign, where he has thrived, winning numerous man-of-the-match awards, while notching up six goals and seven assists in 17 league games.

"Percy is growing progressively," Mosimane told The Star."He's still young and has a whole lot more to learn.

'And the only way to aid that is to give him more game time so he can continue learning from his experiences. We need to allow him to go out there and have fun.

"Percy is going to go places. He's definitely one of those players who I believe we're going to lose in the near future."
