South Africans woke up to reports that Tau had parted ways with Al Ahly and Chiefs fans began sending transfer messages to the club’s management.
Mosiman is crucial to Percy’s return to Africa
Tau signed a contract with Al-Ahly. English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion with a former coach Pizza Mosimane back then at the helm of the Egyptian giants. Mosimane played a huge role in bringing the player back to African football and the early signs were that the combination would bring happy memories for the duo and the club. However, after the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach left the club, things seemed to take a turn for the worse for Tau.

After Massimane’s departure, Tau began to feel heavy and was dropped to the next Al Ahly squad. The situation hasn’t really changed that much for Bafana Bafana at international level and rumors began to intensify linking the player with an exit. This release was originally thought to happen at least after the season, and now the recent reports of an immediate release have come as a shock to many.
A playful message from the bosses
As the news began to spread across South Africa, Chiefs’ official Twitter account did not help as their fans urged the club to sign Tau. In what is perhaps more of a flippant tweet than a transfer hint, the Chiefs administrator went back to a tweet from last year where Tau wished the current Chiefs captain and close friend Keegan Dolly success with his move to the club, the duo also played together in the Mamelodi Sundowns. The admin went and placed a heart and a peace sign, which of course is synonymous with the club.

At the moment there has been no concrete speculation regarding Tau to Chiefs, but it is also important to note that there has been no official statement from Al Ahly either. If or when that statement actually comes through, then it will be interesting to see if the Soweto giants show interest in the player.
