“Continuity of Percy Tau playing and maintaining his physical fitness and avoiding injuries made him perform at this level.” Al Ahly legend Emad Meteb told KingFut.

“Tau is currently in full fitness and full artistic performance. He scored two goals today and played an important role on the field.

“These are advantages that should be credited to the coach who dealt with him well and with all the players.

“The current generation has the ability to achieve what happened in 2005 and 2006, 2007 and 2008, four consecutive finals. Al Ahly won three of them, and I hope that the team wins this year.”
