Percy Tau says graceful goodbye to Anderlecht after being recalled

While he was enjoying his stint at Bruges he helped them win the league title and got some Champion League experience under his belt.

When the UK left the European Union a new points system was introduced for non-English players. This resulted in Albion recalling Tau according.

Here are some reactions from Twitter to the post:

@Shimaninkillale:

"Mamelodi Sundowns players continue flying South African high. All the best Percy Tau."

@Ambitiouz_Ent:

"Percy Tau is doing big things. I think kwamele siyenza ingoma ngaye for appreciation or kanjani Mzansi?"

@ZubiDoobiDoo:

"When Percy Tau scores against the club you support."

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the 26-year-old international sensation Percy Tau has been in Europe since 2018 and has spent those years on loan to the Belgian clubs.

He was signed by the English club Brighton & Hove Albion and landed to other European clubs.

He played a season with Brussels-based club Royal Union Saint-Gilloise and then moved on to Bruges before getting an invite for Anderlecht.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Percy Tau's dream of playing in the English Premier League (EPL) is slowly becoming a reality. English club Brighton & Hove Albion reportedly paid Mamelodi Sundowns a fee of around R50 million for Tau back in 2018.

The UK's exit from the European Union (Brexit) seems to have allowed the UK laws to disregard the International Federation of Association Football's (FIFA) rankings. Before this, the 26-year-old struggled to get a work permit as Bafana Bafana was outside the top 50 in the FIFA rankings

Reports have also suggested that Tau is already in the UK awaiting approval of his work permit.
