Over­seas move will not de­ter­mine my ca­reer - Tau

Observer on Saturday - - Sport - Sport24

- Percy Tau says he re­mains com­mit­ted to Mamelodi Sun­downs and will not al­low him­self to be dis­tracted by talk of an over­seas move. The 23-year-old is seen by many as South Africa's bright­est foot­ball tal­ent and is widely ex­pected to win the Absa Pre­mier­ship Foot­baller of the Sea­son award. He is also be­ing touted for a move to Europe, with his coach Pitso Mosi­mane hav­ing said that he be­lieves Tau is good enough to play in one of the 'top five leagues', al­though he's also said that the live-wire for­ward could do with an­other sea­son in the PSL. Tau has shown though that he has a level head, not want­ing to be side-tracked over spec­u­la­tion about his fu­ture as cham­pi­ons Sun­downs look to wrap up their do­mes­tic league sea­son to­day at Bloem­fontein Celtic be­fore fo­cus­ing on the friendly match against Barcelona next week and then the CAF Cham­pi­ons League af­ter that. "Some­times what you want doesn't hap­pen," he was quoted say­ing by the Ci­ti­zen af­ter col­lect­ing the April Player of the Month award ear­lier this week. "You have to fo­cus on your re­al­ity. That is why I have to keep work­ing hard. I can't sit round and think that maybe one day it will hap­pen. There have been big play­ers who never made it to Europe. "If it hap­pens, it hap­pens. If it doesn't it doesn't. It's not some­thing that will de­ter­mine if I am suc­cess­ful in my ca­reer. "I love foot­ball and it has brought hap­pi­ness to me.
