South Africa's Percy Tau has missed Al Ahly's games, sparking speculation, but the reason has now been undisclosed.

South Africa international Percy Tau was notably absent from Al Ahly's recent fixture against ENPPI sparking speculation among fans and pundits alike. 

With questions swirling about his absence and concerns over his recent form, the reason behind Tau's non-appearance has now been unveiled, putting to rest various speculations that had arisen.

In their Egyptian Premier League encounter against ENPPI, Al Ahly found themselves in a 2-2 draw, but what caught the attention of many was Tau's absence from the matchday squad. 

With the South African forward having missed the previous game against Simba SC as well, eyebrows were raised regarding his status within the team.

However, reports surfacing from Gomhuria Online have shed light on the situation, revealing that Tau's absence was not due to poor form, as previously suggested, but rather due to a minor injury. 

The head of Al Ahly's medical staff has confirmed that Tau was sidelined due to a bruised foot, dispelling any doubts regarding his commitment or performance on the field.

This revelation comes as a relief to both Al Ahly supporters and admirers of Tau, as speculation had begun to mount about potential rifts or concerns regarding his role within the team.

While Tau's goal-scoring record in the Champions League this season has been less than stellar, with just one goal in eight appearances, attributing his absence to a physical ailment provides a clearer understanding of the situation.

Despite the setback of this injury, Tau's importance to Al Ahly remains undeniable. His skill and creativity on the field have been instrumental in the team's success, particularly in continental competitions like the CAF Champions League. 

As Al Ahly progresses through the tournament, having a fit and rejuvenated Tau could prove crucial in their quest for further glory.

For Tau himself, the focus now shifts to his recovery and return to full fitness. With matches coming thick and fast, his presence will be eagerly anticipated by both his teammates and fans alike.
