Premier League

Tweeps react to Tau’s performance against Manchester City.



Percy Tau made the whole country proud after he made his English Premiership debut for Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday 13 January 14.


The former Mamelodi Sundowns attacker started his first league match for English side after finally getting a UK work permit.


Tau signed for the English outfit from the Brazilians 2 and half years ago but struggled to get a UK work permit as South Africa is ranked outside the top 50 by FIFA.


After spending two and half seasons out on loan in Belgium, the left footed forward has finally done enough to get a work permit in England and began his spell in the country on a high note.


“Percy Tau makes way as he's substituted for Neal Maupay in the 67th minute. The Lion of Judah did really well on his Premier League debut tonight! His pace is electrifying, and to be honest, I think it was the wrong decision to take him off. Looked a real threat. #BHAFC”- tweeted @JournoHaff.



Despite his side losing the match against giants Manchester City, Tau impressed many with his skill, pace and tricks.


“Percy Tau is a very exciting player! Gives Brighton something they’ve desperately needed = PACE. Hope he starts against Leeds #MCIBHA” - added @RyanEJourno on Twitter.
