Cape Town - South African soccer star Percy Tau has revealed what playing in the UEFA Champions League means to him as well as his thoughts on his 'Lion of Judah' nickname given to him by his local supporters.

"For me it's a dream come true and a privilege and honour to be in the Champions League with Club Brugge," Tau told UEFAtv. "I'm just grateful for the moment."

Tau then confirmed that he thinks the nickname 'Lion of Judah' - affectionately given to him by the South African public - is "cool" while saying that he brings his South African culture through music and dancing to the Belgian side's dressing room.

"I think it's a cool nickname," Tau said. "I think it's okay. People gave it to me and I just went with it."
