Al Ahly Give Tau Injury Update
Al Ahly have given an injury update on Percy Tau after it was suggested that he could miss the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers for Bafana Bafana.
There were question marks over when Tau picked up the injury, with some believing it could date back to his time at Brighton & Hove Albion.
However, Al Ahly’s medical stuff have now confirmed that it’s just a minor hamstring issue which he picked up during the recent international break with Bafana.
“Tau doesn’t have any chronic injuries, he suffered this injury during his stay in his national team’s camp,” Ahmed Abo-Abla, a member of the club’s medical stuff, said as per Kingfut.
“When Percy returned to Egypt, we checked his current state, he’s suffering a partial hamstring tear, it’s nothing serious.
“The player started his solo training alongside his physical therapy. He’s recovering day after day and will be joining the team’s training in a week or so.”
After Tau was called up for the October qualifiers against Ethiopia, it remains to be seen whether he will return to fitness in time to be able to feature and whether his new club will allow him to join the national team instead of purely focussing on his recovery.
Tau joined the Egyptian giants in the recent transfer window but will not be able to feature in the Egyptian Super Cup on Tuesday night.
