Percy Tau showed off his skills against Club Brugge over the weekend at the Jan Breydel Stadium but he missed an opportunity to score a goal for Anderlecht.
Tau joined Anderlecht from Club Brugge on loan a couple of months ago and it is the first time he had to take on the reigning champions.
Club Brugge ended up winning 3 - 0 but Tau nearly scored a goal against them. However, the Bafana Bafana football star's efforts were stopped by Simon Mignolet.
After the game, Club Brugge took to social media to take a subtle jab at Tau. The club shared a video of the missed opportunity and captioned it:
"Tau shall not pass. #CluAnd."
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans have since reacted to the clip in the comment section.
Twitter user, @SupportClubShow, said:
"I have to say I cracked and laughed... but you know its the only way they'll get attention. Even post likes and retweets went down after he left. They're feeling it."
Refentse Magwaca, @MagwacaRefentse, commented:
"All South African, let us refrain from entertaining this team and their shenanigans..the Lion has left, we have no business here anymore, @rscanderlecht is our new home now, let's go."
In other news, Briefly.co.za earlier reported the Orlando Pirates have decided to cut eight first-team players from the team. The football outfit has dropped amongst others, Xola Mlambo and Augustine Mulenga.
The Pirates ended third in the previous season and have already started making changes to the team. However, this meant that despite adding new faces to the team, a couple of players got the boot.
Amongst the eight players who were shown the door were Xola Mlambo and Augustine Mulenga. They are joined by veteran defender Alfred Ndegane.
The Bucs said:
"Orlando Pirates Football Club can confirm that it has met with the following players and their respective representatives and both parties have agreed to mutually terminate.
"The club would like to thank all the players for their service and wish them the best in their future endeavours."
