South African football fans were finally delighted to see Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau in action for Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. The 'Lion King' came off the bench to provide an assist for the Seagulls in their 1-1 draw against West Ham in the English Premier League.
Apart from seeing Tau in action, many of the player’s fans are still talking about the pass Tau provided to Danny Welbeck that ensured they scored their goal.
“I just hope Potter sees a great fighter here.”
“That's a lovely assist.”
“Well done @percymuzitau22! World-class assist! @OfficialBHAFC, @percymuzitau22 needs more game time to unleash his potential. Mzansi's best!”
“This is what we were talking about when we say we want him in the game. Well done guys.”
“That vision! Should be playing for Barca.”
The draw against West Ham has left the Seagulls placed 17th on the log table with 38 points from 36 games.
Briefly News previously reported that Tau had his official debut for Brighton & Hove Albion in a Premier League match against Manchester City on Wednesday, 13 January.
The forward reportedly displayed flashes of his skills. City came out on top after Phil Foden scored in the 44th minute, securing a narrow defeat over Brighton.
However, Brighton's manager Graham Potter had some positive words about Tau but admitted that being on constant defence made it difficult for Tau to display his full attacking ability.
TimesLive reported that Potter said there were glimpses of Tau's ability during his debut, adding that the 26-year-old would get better the longer he works with Brighton. KickOff reported that Tau spoke positively of his experience, stating that it was only a matter of time before Brighton raked in their wins.
