As The South African website reported on Tuesday afternoon, the 28-year-old from Mpumalanga’s Emalahleni has left Al Ahly to become a free agent.

Tau, known as the Lion of Judah, leaves the Egyptian giants with eight goals and six assists in 31 games, including a CAF Super Cup title since joining in August 2021.

  1. New challenge and environment in Mzansi
  2. Reunion with his former Sundowns attacking partner Khama Billiat
  3. Another reunion with ex-Sundowns teammate Keagan Dolly 
  4. The fierce competition for selection in the Sundowns squad, even if you’re the great Lion of Judah.
  5. While Sundowns have the bigger financial muscle, Chiefs could simply break the bank for what is one of the best talents of this generation.

Final thoughts:

A move to Amakhosi is unlikely but football transfers are always capable of high drama. Who could have imagined the likes of Billiat, Dolly, and Leonardo Castro wearing the Chiefs shirt?
