- Percy Tau says he would be happy to play in any European league, but admits he would choose Spain ahead of other countries
- The Mamelodi Sundowns striker said he would love to face Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on a regular basis
- Tau’s current boss Pitso Mosimane revealed that English Premier League clubs were interested in the striker
Mamelodi Sundowns star striker Percy Tau will be happy to play in any of the top European soccer leagues, but admitted that if it was up to him he would choose to play in Spain’s La Liga.
Tau revealed that he would love to face Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo on a regular basis.
Sport24.co.za reported that Tau feels he is ready to play overseas and pit his skills against the best players in the world. He said: “I believe that I’m ready to go overseas because I have played international football.”
Briefly.co.za gathered that Tau’s current boss Pitso Mosimane revealed that several English Premier League clubs had shown interest in his star player.
Speaking after the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Season Awards ceremony Mosimane said it would be nearly impossible for Sundowns to retain Tau because English Premier League (EPL) sides were interested in him.
Mosimane said: I think he must go overseas. Let's have a player in the EPL we've got nobody now.
"He has done well for us what else can he do for us? You know let's see him abroad week in and week out and let's judge him there is he is the real deal or not. So let him go."
Tau said he would go to Spain, England or Germany but probably would think twice about going somewhere like Denmark or Sweden.
“It would be nice to play against Messi again; it was not enough in the recent match because I did not score against them,” Tau said.
Tau capped off an amazing season by winning the PSL Footballer of the Season and Player’s Player of the season awards. He also shared the golden boot with Rodney Ramagalela.
