Mamelodi Sundowns' Percy Tau wants the club to fight hard to reclaim the Absa Premiership title

Mamelodi Sundowns’ attacking midfielder Percy Tau says they will be out to reclaim the Absa Premiership title they lost to Bidvest Wits, when the new season starts.
Sundowns, who return to training after a short break tomorrow, missed out on defending the title and they are now eager to get it back to Chloorkop.
Sundowns are also determined to hold on to their CAF Champions League title. They are in the quarterfinals and they are set to come up against Wydad Casablanca.
“The coach has developed a culture of winning. We are also going to go for the league,” Tau said in the latest issue of KickOff Magazine, now on shelves and available for download.
“We understand there will be challenges, but if we set a goal, it should be the league title. We need to defend the Champions League title as well and get to the Club World Cup again. Playing at the Club World Cup was a dream come true and it would be great to play in it again. If we get another chance to play there again, we will do well.”
Tau, who was nominated for the PSL Players’ Player of the Season, is delighted with the progress he made in the 2016/2017 season and is happy that he has achieved a lot of the things he had set out for himself at age 19.
“It’s good progress and it shows that the loan [to Witbank Spurs] helped a lot. What’s happening now is actually what I had planned when I was 19. I wanted everything to be done when I was 19, but it’s only happening now.
“From that list of things I wrote when I was 19, I have only achieved some of the things I want. I still have a lot of things that I want to achieve. I think I need to write another list now,” he said.
