According to IOL, the Belgian said:

"He has to play most of the time. Let’s hope if he does not succeed and get a regular position at Al Ahly, that in January, he finds another team where he can play. When you see what happened with Percy in the last year. He went from one injury to another, and then went through his recovery.

“Later, he would play two or three games and was again injured. He didn’t play for us because of injuries against Ethiopia and France."

Bafana is preparing for a friendly match tomorrow evening against Mozambique tomorrow night at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit. They will then return to the same venue on Sunday for a fixture against Angola.

SowetanLIVE reported that Broos was angry with Lyle Foster ahead of this international window for his no-show at training camp, forcing the management to make emergency call-ups elsewhere.

Good news as Percy Tau makes long-awaited Al Ahly return after an injury layoff

Percy Tau is back on the football pitch after a lengthy absence.

The 28-year-old had been out injured since August after pulling a hamstring, before turning out in a friendly match between Al Ahly's first team and youth players recently. As reported by Sports Brief, Tau was up selection ahead of an Egyptian Premier League match against Aswan not long ago.

New coach Marcel Koller is believed to be keen on his services despite initial reports that he might have been on the way out of the club during the transfer window.
