The 24-year-old former Mamelodi Sundowns star, who joined Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion at the start of the season, is now on loan at Belgian lower division outfit Union Saint-Gilloise.

However, having witnessed his quality first hand at the FNB Stadium as he bagged the man-of-the-match award, the German tactician feels he is more than capable of plying his trade on a bigger stage in Europe.

“I want to give my congratulations to this wonderful player Percy Tau. I hope to see him again in a big team in Europe,” said Rohr after the match.

“He has all the qualities to be a player in England or somewhere in a big championship, and he gave us a lot of problems.”
