Masandawana have potentially the league's most formidable attacking force with Brockie and Tau at their disposal

Jeremy Brockie is the latest voice adding to the chorus of footballers and coaches who believe that Mamelodi Sundowns star attacker Percy Tau is destined for bigger things.

The 23-year-old is currently enjoying a fine 2017/18 Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign, having banged in seven goals in 19 league appearances and contributed to their sensational rise up the league table with five assists.

However, as expected, with such impressive displays comes a whole lot expectation, and Tau is no exception as he has already been touted to be the next high-profile South African to move to Europe, following in the footsteps of Keagan Dolly and Bongani Zungu whom he played with.

While Tau’s talent is undeniable, it is no longer a case of if he will go to Europe, but rather when and where. Tau has already attracted interest from Russian Premier League club FC Rostov and Danish club Midtjylland.

But despite the attractive offers on the table, Tau remains a Sundowns player with the January transfer window now closed, much to the delight of many of the Sundowns fans.

Nonetheless, all eyes will now fall on his partnership with the Brazilians newest signing, a player who has certainly not hidden his admiration for Tau.

Brockie believes that Tau is destined for a move to Europe in the coming years, but for now he is relishing the prospect of partnering with the Bafana Bafana international upfront.

"Percy is just top class, it's a pleasure to be with him in training everyday," Brockie told The Sowetan.

"He has all the attributes of a player who can achieve success at the highest level. I think one day he can definitely go to Europe. Coach Pitso [Mosimane] has just been working with him and wants to make sure he is a more complete player,” he added.

"I look forward to play with him in attack," he concluded.
