Pitso Mosimane has revealed in which positional role he intends to use Percy Tau at Al Ahly amid the Bafana Bafana star hitting top form.

Tau continued his impressive form for Al Ahly on Thursday when he netted his second brace of the season during a 4-1 win over Smouha.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star is now the joint-leading goalscorer in the league and boasts five goals to his name in just six appearances for the campaign.

Speaking after his side's victory, Mosimane revealed that his set-up was still a work in progress but that he knew exactly how he planned on best utilising the abilities of his countryman and the local talent around him. 

"I‘ve been only here for 13 months. I need time," The team still doesn’t play exactly the way I want," Mosimane said, per the club's media team.

"Sometimes I want to make sure that we don’t concede goals but we still make mistakes, because we want to attack and that leaves us a bit open in the back. We now play with a different intensity.

"Percy is a number nine, he’s not a winger. There are games that [Mohamed] Sherif is good for [in that position] and there are games that we might not use him as nine. For example, remember in Zamalek’s game Taher [Mohamed] played in parts of it as a 9..."
