Potter Explains Tau Absence

Brighton & Hove Albion coach Graham Potter has explained why Percy Tau was absent from the Premier League side’s squad on Saturday.

Despite scoring his first goal for the club last week, Tau was not in Saturday’s match day squad for Brighton’s friendly against Getafe.

The news come amid rumours linking the South African with a move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly where he would reunite with Pitso Mosimane.

However, Potter remained cryptical when asked about the player’s absence, saying he was out for “personal reasons”.

“He was out for personal reasons. We will see how the weekend goes and go from there on Tuesday,” the Seagulls coach said after his side’s 2-0 defeat, as per the Brighton & Hove Independent.

Reports in the local media state that Tau has agreed to join Al Ahly and his move will be announced very soon.
