The savvy tactician admitted he’s open to the idea of reuniting with the former Witbank Spurs player
Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has raised rumors linking the club to Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau.
The quick attacker scored his first goal for Brighton & Hove and Albion recently but his future on the English side is reportedly uncertain.
Tau is believed not to guarantee any playing time in Brighton under manager Graham Potter before the new season begins.
Egyptian master Al Ahly has reportedly shown his interest in tau as Mosimane attempts to reunite with the 27-year-old assailant who worked with him at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The South African tactician was unable to confirm or deny the Red Devils’ interest in Tau, whose contract with Brighton is still running for a year.
“I have a very good relationship with Percy,” said Mosimane Soccer Laduma.
“And if it’s available, why not? And does he want to go back to Africa too?
“Can we afford the transfer fee Brighton would charge? And would we also meet his personal requirements? If all of these boxes can be ticked, I will be very interested in them.”
Under Mosimane’s leadership at Sundowns, Tau became one of Africa’s finest players as he played a vital role in helping the Tshwane giants win the Caf Champions League and PSL championships.
Tau shared the PSL Golden Shoe with Rodney Ramagalela and won the Footballer of the Season and Player of the Season awards at the 2017/18 PSL awards ceremony.
Brighton snatched dew from Sundowns in August 2018 and was then loaned to the Belgian SG Union shortly after his transfer as he had not been granted a UK work permit.
Born in Witbank, the player also spent some time with the Belgian giants Club Brugge and RSC Anderlecht on loan from Brighton to gain European football experience.
The man, nicknamed the Lion of Judah, returned to Brighton in January 2021 after receiving his UK work permit, but battled for playtime under Potter.
He only played three Premier League games for Brighton last season and it remains to be seen if he will still be a seagull when the UK transfer window closes on August 31st.
