Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau continues to impress since his high-profile move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly three months ago.

Tau currently leads the way atop the league scoring charts after netting a brace in Al Ahly's 4-1 triumph over Smouha on Thursday.

After a brief stint of struggling to hit his stride, his latest efforts have upped his tally to five goals in just six appearances for the Red Devils so far this season, News24 reported.

Perfect start to life in Egypt

The 27-year-old's heroics further ensured that Pitso Mosimane's side's perfect start to the season remained intact ahead of being recognised with his second individual prize in Cairo in the past six weeks.

Tau was named Player of the Week after bagging two goals on debut against Ismaily in the opening round of fixtures. The former Brighton & Hove Albion forward is the only player to have scooped the award more than once in the current run of the campaign.

On present form, and with Al Ahly in action when the Egyptian Premier League returns at the butt-end of December, Tau is staking an early but serious claim for both the Player of the Year and Golden Boot accolades at the end of the season.

Worry over Tau's future if Mosimane leaves

The timeline has been a frenzy since the news broke about Mosimane possibly leaving Al Ahly, with fans worried about Tau.

The striker recently joined Al Ahly so he could play under coach Mosimane and now it seems like things will be different. Earlier, Briefly News reported that Mosimane's contract discussions with Al Ahly did not go his way and reports stated that he's looking at leaving.

Tau left Brighton so he could get some game time but that might not be possible if he plays under a different coach at Al Ahly. All football fans in Mzansi want is for him to finally get the chance to show what he's made of.
