South Africans were buzzing when Percy Tau was recalled to Brighton & Hove Albion after his loan spell at Anderlecht. Tau had his English Premier League debut against the mighty Manchester City and says he still needs to adjust to Premier League football.
It has been a while since a South African has graced the Premier League and football fans in Mzansi were excited to see what Percy could do.
