Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau has joined Al Ahly on a loan deal after agreeing a deal to leave English club Brighton & Hove Albion.
And all that’s left is for Tau to pass a medical and put pen to paper and officially become an Al Ahly player.
Percy Tau’s return to Africa has divided the opinions of football fans in the country with some believing that he will be making a wrong career decision.
However, Pitso Mosimane’s ambitions to continue dominating African football and conquer the FIFA Club World Cup with Al Ahly were clearly enough in convincing Tau to return ‘home’.
Tau and Mosimane worked together for years at Mamelodi Sundowns before the left-footer joined Brighton in 2018.
Tau spent a number of seasons on loan in Belgium as he struggled to get a UK work permit until early 2021 when Brighton recalled him.
