Tau has been a key player in the Downs squad, particularly after Khama Billiat and the now departed Leonardo Castro‘s form downgraded.

The 23-year old has scored seven goals and made six assists so far this season.

“We do a lot of work with Percy, the plan is for him to become footballer of the year. We made the plan in the beginning of the year. I think we are on course at the moment with six assists and seven goals. It is a big statistic that nobody has in South Africa now, so we are on course,” said Mosimane.

The Downs coach will be hoping Tau will help his side get back to winning ways after dropping three points against Orlando Pirates on their previous game, when they host Platinum Stars at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday.
