Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes forward Percy Tau is the undisputed Player of the Season and deserves to take every award available come the end of the season. 

With 10 goals in all competitions and seven assists as well, Tau appears to be a frontrunner for the league's most valuable performer. 

However, Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune could also have a say while current Premiership top goalscorer Rodney Ramagalela may also be in the reckoning, amongst others. 

Nonetheless, Mosimane takes the view that it should not even be a contest as his young striker is playing some unbelievable football for the Brazilians. 

He told reporters: "And Percy Tau is one beautiful player‚ huh. I’m waiting to see who’s going to challenge Percy for Footballer of the Year and Player’s Player of the Year. I'm waiting. 

"And I need the name now‚ to say: there's eight games to go‚ who is challenging Percy Tau for Footballer and Player's Player? 

"He must take everything. He's scoring goals and he's assisting. What a brave youngster. He just shows that talent is not enough, you must back talent. 

"You must run‚ you must play‚ you must force‚ you must be brave. A player like this in South Africa we haven't seen for a long time. It's unbelievable."
