Why Percy Tau must resist Al Ahly & Mosimane reunion

The South Africa forward has been tipped for an exit from Brighton & Hove Albion, but is a switch to Egypt wise?

Percy Tau has been heavily linked with the Brighton & Hove Albion exit door over the last week, with the South Africa forward rumoured to be attracting the interest of Egyptian giants and reigning continental champions Al Ahly.

On one hand, there’s logic behind the potential switch.

Tau appears to have lost his way in European football, having played a limited role for the Seagulls in their battle against the drop after returning from his loan deal midway through last season.

A switch to Ahly would also afford him a reunion with Pitso Mosimane, a coach who has meant more to his career than any other.

It was under Mosimane that Tau enjoyed his rise to prominence while the duo worked together at Mamelodi Sundowns.
