Percy Muzi Tau (born 13 May 1994) is a South African professional soccer player who plays for the Egyptian Premier League club Al Ahly SC and the South African national team.
Tau began his footballing career with Premier Soccer League side Mamelodi Sundowns where he made 100 appearances on either side of a loan to Witbank Spurs. During his time with Sundowns, he won the league title twice and the CAF Champions League once and was named Footballer of the Year and joint-top-goalscorer in his final season with the club.
He joined Brighton in 2018 but, due to work-permit complications, was loaned out to Belgian side Union SG with whom he won the Proximus League Player of the Season award. His form earned him a short-term move to Club Brugge, where he won a league winners’ medal the following season, before being loaned out for a third consecutive season when he signed for rivals Anderlecht in 2020.
And now he just signed a new annual contract with Al Ahly SC in 2021 with a peckish appetite to reach more achievements verbatim.
Percy Tau’s net worth is estimated to be $3 million, according to the list of richest South African Footballers.
