“I’m not gonna get involved in it, and I don’t know who started it. I’m not gonna go further in that one.”

“They must just get the right news and correct it. I don’t know who started this because it’s incorrect.”

“I still have a contract that I have with the team and still have to respect at the moment!”

Tau urged media outlets to ensure accuracy in their reporting, emphasising the importance of respecting his existing contract with Al Ahly.
