South Africa’s current best player Percy Tau gets loaned to the second tier in Belgium in country where players like Andile Jali & Darren Keet didn’t REALLY succeed in the first division. Realised was coming but this seems a strange plan.

By the time Percy Tau’s loan is over Brighton and Hove will have been relegated back to the English Championship meaning he might not actually play in the EPL at all 💔💔💔 pic.twitter.com/x6YEZLRakd

People who are complaining about Percy Tau joining a 2nd division Belgium team do not understand the logistics behind it.
