Player of the Weekend: Percy Tau


In a weekend that was filled with goals and various South Africans finding the net overseas for their respective clubs, FARPost looks at the best performers abroad with striker Percy Tau leading the charge.

After returning from international duty with Bafana Bafana, the attacker continued his good form in Belgium with RSC Anderlecht.

Anderlecht played out to a 2-2 draw against Darren Keet’s OH Leuven in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

Tau scored the second goal as they played out to a 2-2 draw against Leuven. Under Vincent Kompany, the former Mamelodi Sundowns star has been a regular at the club playing eight games and scoring three goals in the process.
