Tau signed a Student deal together with Brighton in the onset of the recently finished season but afterward spent 2018/19 on loan Royale Union Saint-Gilloise at Belgium’s second branch.
The 25-year old proved his value being named Player of the Season at that branch even though it’s a couple of steps down in England’s top flight.
Therefore, Radebe, who’s a legend for former EPL costume Leeds United, remains optimistic that Tau can one day create the breakthrough to the Seagulls despite work permit problems.
He explained:”It’s hard for Percy, if I were to place myself in his shoes, my dream and aspiration would be to play in the maximum level then you realise that there are rules and prerequisites to be in a position to accomplish this, it will become demoralising.
“But in precisely the exact same time, you have been signed with a big club so that you may also create the extreme best of it with regards to where you’re [placed].
“To be honest, for me personally, I do not believe he deserves this. I believe he deserves to be where he has set his signature and really play. However, of course, we have got to stick to the principles.
“I feel awful for himbut I think he is doing his best in which he has been put in Belgium, and I trust he does finally get a chance to play at the English Premier League.”
