Percy Tau has revealed the reason behind is blockbuster move to Al Ahly from Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.

Tau completed his highly-anticipated transfer to the Red Eagles, where he has been reunited with his former coach Pitso Mosimane for a fee understood to be in the region of £1.6m (±R32.7m).

Now, the 27-year-old has opened up on the move that has been viewed by many as a step backwards although the Lion of Judah feels that the move happened at the right time.

“I think Al Ahly have always had an interest in me, even before this. It just happened to be the right time and there were successful communications, and we were able to come to an agreement,” he told the club’s media department in a candid interview.

Tau says that it was a no-brainer when Ahly expressed their interest in luring from the Seagulls where he had made just six appearances.

“You don’t think when you get an offer from Al Ahly. You don’t have to think, you can’t think - but it was that moment when I was like ‘wow’ Al Ahly. There is so much thinking when it comes to such decisions, you consider all options that are available, and you consider the benefit to you as a player.

“Coming to Al Ahly, means you’ve got the chance to try to win the league, CAF Champions League and to try to win the CAF Super Cup. You also have the chance to play in the Club World Cup. It all made more sense to me,” he added.

"You don't think when you get an offer from Al Ahly" stupidity of the highest order! Not thinking is the worst mistake any person can make. Who are you trying to fool? We can see right through you. You didn't join Al Ahly because of who they are, you joined them because there's Pitso there. He misled you to safe his own skin. One wonders what will become of you when he fails to win a cup or two and he is fired
