The skilled tactician has admitted that he is open to the idea of reuniting with the former player of Witbank Spurs
Pitso Mosimane, head coach of Al Ahly, has addressed rumors linking the club with international Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau.
The fast striker recently scored his first goal for Brighton & Hove and Albion, but his future on the English side is reportedly uncertain.
It is believed that Tau does not have a guaranteed playing time at Brighton under manager Graham Potter before the new season.
Egyptian champions Al Ahly have reportedly registered their interest in Tau because Mosimane wants to reunite with the 27-year-old striker who worked with him at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The South African tactician could not confirm or deny the interest of the Red Devils in Tau, which is still a year away from his contract with Brighton.
“I have a very good relationship with Percy,” Mosimane said. Socks Laduma.
‘And if he’s available, why not, and does he want to return to Africa too?
“Can we afford the transfer fee that Brighton would charge? And would we also meet his personal conditions? If all the blocks can be ticked, I would have a big interest on this.”
Led by Mosimane at Sundowns, Tau became one of the best players in Africa as he played a key role in helping the Tshwane giants win the Caf Champions League title and PSL championship.
Tau shared the PSL Golden Boot with Rodney Ramagalela and also won the Footballer of the Season and the Player of the Season Awards during the 2017/18 PSL Awards.
Brighton picked up Tau from Sundowns in August 2018 and he was subsequently loaned out to the Belgian side of SG Union shortly after he could not get a work permit in the UK.
The born Witbank player also borrowed from the Belgian giants Club Brugge and RSC Anderlecht from Brighton for some time, while gaining European football experience.
The man nicknamed Lion of Judah returned to Brighton in January 2021 after obtaining his British work permit, but he struggled for playing time under Potter.
He only played three games in Brighton in the Premier League last season, and it remains to be seen whether he will be another seagull when the UK transfer window closes on 31 August.
