Percy Tau is set to win his first major European trophy after the Jupiler Pro League board of directors proposed to end the season due to the novel coronavirus.
The recommendation, made on Thursday, still needs to be endorsed at a general assembly meeting on April 15.
If agreed upon, the decision will see Tau and his team mates name champions of the league as they are fifteen points ahead at the top with one game remaining of the Belgian regular season.
The Pro League said via a statement the decision had been made under the advice that it was “highly unlikely” games would be played in front of the public before June 30, a date after which they consider it undesirable to continue the season beyond.
“In addition, possible contamination of a player or the core of the team risks to influence the sporting course of the further competition in an unacceptable manner.
“Even if games behind closed doors could theoretically be possible, the additional pressure they place on health and order services should be avoided.” The statement said.
The South African player had join the Belgian club on loan from Brighton Albion last year after another loan spell with Union SG in 2018.
He has scored three goals in sixteen appearances for Club Brugge.
