Albion head coach Graham Potter believes fans should not expect too much from Percy Tau so soon after his arrival.

The 26-year-old was recalled from his season-long loan at Anderlecht on Thursday after obtaining a Governing Body Endorsement from the FA, which is the new points system for non-English players which came into force a couple of weeks ago following the UK’s exit from the European Union.

Tau made his debut on Sunday coming off the bench in Albion’s 4-3 win over Newport on penalties in the FA Cup third round.

His arrival has led to much excitement among fans.

However, Potter believes it is important they do not put too much pressure on Tau early on in his Albion career.

He told The Argus: “You have got to be fair to Percy and have got to be fair to the team.

"He has moved to a new country, a new club, a new league, which I’m sure he will adapt to.

“He has got the right mentality and he has got the right attributes, but it is up to us to find a way for him to show them off as often as we can.

“Our job is to try and help him enjoy his football, that is what we want to do.

“It is a shame our supporters are not in the ground to see him play because then they could help him settle in a bit easier, but it is what it is.

“We look forward to a time when everybody is back in the stadium and they can enjoy the team again.”
