Percy Tau has given his thoughts on the progress of Bafana Bafana teammate Lyle Foster in the (English) Premier League.
Tau got a brief experience of the Premier League when he was in the colours of Brighton & Hove Albion, before leaving the club to join Egyptian giants Al Ahly, where he has won quite a few major trophies, including the CAF Champions League.
Foster made his Premier League debut in August and has already found the back of the net twice for Burnley, who are coached by Tau’s former coach at Anderlecht, Vincent Kompany.
“Lyle is my boy. I spent like three hours with him in Belgium talking and sharing what I have been learning with him. I am proud to see him doing because I feel like he deserves it. He has to be in that space,” Tau said earlier this week ahead of Bafana Bafana’s international friendly matches against Namibia and DR Congo.
“It’s a good platform to show them in Europe that we still have quality to play in the EPL (English Premier League). He has to keep going and learning. He has Kompany there and I hope they will make a great relationship going forward. I am proud of him and I want to see him growing.”
Foster and Tau could start upfront for Bafana when they take on Namibia this weekend.
