Percy Tau is an exciting young, dynamic midfielder who signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2013. Having come through the academy at Mamelodi Sundowns, Percy caught the eye of Pitso Mosimane following a string of good performances.

His quick feet, eye for a pass and ability to glide past players will be tested as he looks to break into the Mamelodi Sundowns starting XI with competition in the middle of the park being fierce for the Brazilians.

Tau is originally from Witbank in Mpumalanga and is one of 8 children. He was spotted by Mamelodi Sundowns scouts in 2010 while he was at Phakama Combined School. He joined the Mamelodi Sundowns academy in 2012 and was selected to play for the SA under-20 National Squad away against Botswana and Nigeria.
