PITSO MOSIMANE ADMITS PERCY TAU IS MISSING GOALS, BUT…
During a recent media briefing, the Kagiso-born coach told journalists that he has answered their demands to field Hassan. But has he delivered?
“You can judge Hossam Hassan, I’m happy I played him because it’s okay to play him and he deserved a chance I gave him. Percy Tau is playing good, but he’s missing chances, he’s just missing chances to score.
Additionally, Pitso said that Tau is not really justifying his opportunities to start either…
“That’s why I put Hossam Hassan in, even he can score and I played [Mohamed] Sherif today, he also missed a chance, I brought in Salah Mohsen and he also missed a chance. So where am I going now, maybe I must play you?
“Sherif has been playing all the games and missing [too]. Percy Tau is missing chances, we can’t run away from that, okay… Hossam Hassan was playing – no chance okay.
“Sherif has been playing all the games, don’t drive me to one point, I’m giving references. Sherif played seven games and didn’t score okay, “ Pitso Mosimane concluded.
Based on the report above, it should not surprise anyone that the former Bafana Bafana coach wants a top Sundowns striker.
We can all recall what was a massive saga where Al Ahly nearly secured the services of Gaston Sirino from Sundowns but the DStv Premiership champions refused to relent.
Can they succeed this time with a different player target?
