Tsamaya This week’s soc­cer buzz


● Tsamaya still won­ders how on earth some­one al­lowed the tal­ent of Percy Tau to be wasted in a club play­ing in the sec­ond di­vi­sion of Bel­gium. This week Tau showed why he must leave Royale Union Saint-Gil­loise as soon as pos­si­ble when he starred as his team beat Bel­gium giants An­der­lecht 3-0 away from home in a cup tie on Thurs­day.

The sooner Brighton & Hove Al­bion man­ager Chris Hughton makes an­other plan for Tau, the bet­ter it will be for all con­cerned. Tau’s silky skills sim­ply be­long to a bet­ter league than that Mvela wa ko Bel­gium.

● Every­body knows that the Gqom and Maskandi mu­sic spins a lot of peo­ple’s heads in Dur­ban, but pump­ing it to every soul land­ing in the ba­nana city could be stretch­ing it. This is ex­actly what the en­ter­tain­ers at the MTN8 fi­nal at Moses Mab­hida Sta­dium de­liv­ered yes­ter­day, with maskandi artists like Khuzani run­ning the show. A song or two of the other gen­res would surely keep ev­ery­one on their feet.

● In his praise of Cape Town City mid­fielder Teko Modise’s longevity in the game of foot­ball, Su­perS­port United de­fender Mor­gan Gould de­liv­ered a clas­sic quote this week.

”And he’s – I don’t like wine‚ so I don’t know what wine tastes like – but Teko has ma­tured like wine,” said Gould.

We sug­gest Gould meets Tsamaya for wine classes so that he will know ex­actly what Modise is de­vel­op­ing into.
