Bafana Bafana playmaker Percy Tau has been named Player of the Week in the Egyptian Premier League following his goalscoring heroics for Al Ahly.

The award is the second recognition the 27-year-old has received as he has finally sprung to life at the Team of the Century since his arrival in August from Premier League outft Brighton and Hove Albion.

Tau is the first player to be acknowledged twice this season after just six matchdays as Al Ahly steer the ship as log leaders with six victories from six games.

After a brief stint of struggling to hit form, the former Mamelodi Sundowns attacker has netted five goals in six matches for the Red Devils.

His latest scoring brace earned him the man-of-the-match award after Al Ahly thrashed Smouha 4-1 last week.

Tau will again be in action when the Egyptian Premier League returns at the tail-end of December.

Al Ahly takes on Future on Tuesday, 21 December.

Kick-off is at 17:30 (SA time).
