- South African football fans are unhappy with the fact that Percy Tau is not being given regular game time at Brighton & Hove Albion
- The Bafana Bafana star Tau was a notable absentee as Brighton & Hove Albion drew 0-0 against Chelsea on Tuesday night
- Many of the striker’s fans want him to leave the English side and join Crystal Palace or go back to Belgium at Club Brugge
South African football fans continue to voice their unhappiness over the lack of game time regarding striker Percy tau at Brighton & Hove Albion. According to the latest tweets from the football-loving supporters, they still insist the former Mamelodi Sundowns star should consider a move away from England.
The Seagulls were in action against Chelsea in the English Premier League on Tuesday night and Twitter is abuzz with comments from many fanatics.
While many believe the game is for the fans and wonder why the club cannot heed the call to field the Witbank-born player, some believe the club is killing the Bafana Bafana international.
Briefly News takes a look at the comments from the social media application as they want the 2016 CAF African Champions League winner back in action.
“Percy Tau should go back to Club Brugge, ayikho leh.”
“One day we must talk about how some Mzansi Twitter influencers cost Percy Tau at Brighton with reckless comments against his team. They know themselves behaving like kids on Brighton's Twitter account, turning his teammates against him.”
“Percy Tau should join his African brothers at Crystal Palace. Brighton is not for him. Even when he is given a nod, he is not passed the ball.”
“Percy Tau must come back home and leave that useless team.”
“Percy Tau's move to Brighton was suicidal, he doesn't fit there. It's the same as Affonso at Sundowns.”
It could have been far worse if not for Tau and some poor defence from Ghana, otherwise South Africa would have failed to capitalise on an early goal.
Bafana fans were furious with Thapelo Morena for missing a vital goal opportunity in the first five minutes. Bafana lost Andile Jali in the first half after taking a knock, then he was replaced by Ben Motshwari.
