Al Ahly have provided an injury update of the Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau ahead of their Fifa Club World Cup semi-final clash against Palmeiras at Al Nahyan Stadium.
The game is set to kick off at 18:30 (SA time), where the winner will either face European champions Chelsea or Asian champions Al Hilal in the final on Saturday.
‘The Lion of Judah’ missed the ‘Red Devils’ first match of the tournament against Monterrey this past weekend. The game ended 1-0 in favour of the African Club of the Century.
The speedy frontman suffered an anterior muscle injury during their 3-0 defeat to Smouha in the Egyptian League Cup a week ago.
“Percy Tau has started a new phase in his recovery program on Monday at Zayed Cricket Stadium,” said the club in a statement.
“Tau ran around the pitch and performed several fitness exercises on the sidelines of the team’s training sessions.
“The club concluded their preparations on Monday for Tuesday’s encounter against Palmeiras in the semi-finals of the Fifa Club World Cup at Al Nahyan Stadium.”
