Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane has said his starplayer Percy Tau deserves to play in one of Europe’s top 5 leagues and not just be lured to any European move.

Tau has attracted a lot of interest from clubs overseas but Mosimane believes Sundowns pay better wages than some of the European Leagues, so he would rather let the player leave if he is going to play in a top league and Champions league.

“Percy will always have interest. I mean for a young player of that age and he is doing very well, there will always be a team in Europe who wants him. But you must understand that some teams in Europe, they might not be paying better than Sundowns, so it doesn’t mean that the team in Europe wants Percy,” explained Mosimane

“As I said, I want Percy to go to the top five leagues in Europe and represent us well there, and let’s have a player in the Champions league from South Africa, we are missing that,” he added

Tau has stepped up to lead Sundowns’ attack after the departures of the likes of Keagan Dolly and Bongani Zungu and has become a very important squad member for Pitso Mosimane’s team.
