The rise of Percy Tau could not have been calculated but there were certainly risks involved to get him to a point where he plays on one of the biggest stages in world football - the English Premier League.

The Mamelodi Sundowns product helped the Brazilians win every title on offer during his time there, except the MTN8. He won the CAF Champions League, CAF Super Cup, Premiership title, Nedbank Cup and the Telkom Knockout.

That all happened in just under two years before Brighton and Hove Albion signed the player up for an undisclosed fee before loaning Tau out to three Belgium clubs for two and a half years.
