- Mngomeni believes that Tau is Bafana's star player
- He thinks that his level of confidence is the key for success
- Aside from Bafana Bafana, he is pleased with the Pirates progress this season
Thabo Mngomeni, who is a former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates star, thinks that the South African national team needs to be built around Percy Tau.
Thabo believes that Tau has a great confidence level and that would be beneficial for the entire team to follow.
“It is painful that we didn’t qualify for the 2018 World Cup, we must try and qualify for the next one. We need to find a common way of playing football in our leagues so that we can qualify for the next one. We’ll qualify if we trust our way of doing things and not change coaches and get coaches from all over the world,” Mngomeni told SABC Sports.

Bafana Bafana are in Zambia at the moment for the four nation’s tournament.
“If you talk about Tau, he is the only player in the last two decades that I can say if you select a national team you must start with him and the rest of the players will follow. His mentality is good, he trusts himself and he is confident and I would like for other players to look up to him for inspiration. He is playing well in every game and not just in games against the big clubs.”
Despite his thought on the Bafana Bafana team, Thabo is pleased with the Pirates.
“The Pirates players in the Bafana squad were taken at the right time because they are on form. Pirates are playing better this season, but they need to be consistent. But this season you can tell there is identity on how they play.”
