The Tau trans­fer

Destiny Man - - SPORTS ROUND-UP -

While it may not be in the Ron­aldo realm, Mamelodi Sun­downs striker Percy Tau’s mooted R50 mil­lion move to English Pre­mier League Brighton would more than dou­ble the South African trans­fer record. Hav­ing re­port­edly been given Sun­downs owner Pa­trice Mot­sepe’s bless­ing, the deal might yet be stymied by per­mit is­sues, but it would be fan­tas­tic to have the reign­ing Pre­mier Soc­cer League Player of the Year cam­paign­ing in Eng­land, given Bafana Bafana’s peren­nial woes. Wish­ful think­ing, per­haps – but the move may just ig­nite a new era of suc­cess for the na­tional team.
