South Africa head coach encourages Percy Tau to join Al Ahly


South Africa head coach Hugo Broos has encouraged Al Ahly target Percy Tau to leave Premier League outfit Brighton to seek more playtime.

Tau, 27, has been a target for the Reds for a while now after Pitso Mosimane had previously hinted that he will be bringing a player from South Africa to Al Ahly’s ranks.

Since he joined Brighton, Percy was loaned to three Belgium clubs over a two-and-a-half-year period.

Percy’s journey in Belgium was successful in that he returned to England earlier this year as ordered by Brighton coach Graham Potter.

On Thursday, Broos spoke to the media announcing the South African squad for World Cup qualifiers, while doing so, he addressed Percy Tau’s situation.

“I hope that the players who are in Europe that they are playing,” said Broos.

“There are already a few players who changed clubs, hopefully, for them, it’s a good thing and that in their new clubs they can play more.

“Because otherwise also, I heard the critics already in May when I came here (asking) ‘why are the players in Europe not selected’ if you don’t play.

“Percy Tau, I hope, I hope he can leave Brighton and that he can go to a (new) club.

“There is talk about Egypt, Pitso who is in Al Ahly; it should be a very good thing for him because there he has a coach who knows him.”
