Fatau Dauda is our no.1 - Orlando Pirates technical director

Orlando Pirates technical director Stanley Chabalala is on a collision course with coach Roger De Sa by insisting Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda will be the first choice at the club.

De Sa had declared the Black Stars no.1 as his third choice behind Senzo Meyiwa and Brighton Mhlongo.

The coach’s comments seem to have infuriated his employers who bought the Ghana international at the start of the season to replace Moeneeb Josephs as the club’s first choice.

Delayed registration for the South African top flight and the inability to register Dauda for the Champions League campaign saw Meyiwa favoured as the first choice.

But Pirates technical director Chabalala says the Ghana goalkeeper will be assuming the leading goalkeeper’s role despite the contrary declaration of coach De Sa.

Dauda is not the third choice goalkeeper; he is not the second choice goalkeeper. He will be the first choice goalkeeper and he is going to compete with the goalkeeper who played the African championship,” he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

Dauda should be playing because we have just received his card after registration. So he is going to be with the team as from Monday as we speak.

“We are also worried because we heard from our administrative officer what the manager said that Dauda is the third choice goalkeeper.

Dauda cannot be the third choice goalkeeper for us when he is the first choice goalkeeper for Ghana.

“Our goalkeeper is not even the second choice in South Africa so how can we say that Dauda is the third choice goalkeeper? No, no, no.

“Just that we are not playing this weekend but on Monday. So Dauda will either be in the post or will be on the bench.”

Dauda’s position as the first choice Black Stars goalkeeper is under serious threat due to his relative club inactiveness.

He has been adviced to seek at least a loan move away from the club if he is not guaranteed regular playing time in order to maintain his position in the Ghana national team ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

    Heheheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee..your juju dey work..Now Technical director and coach are both having “collision” on your role lol..#powers

  2. nas says:

    How can a first choice keeper be on bench

    • Africanus says:

      He was on the bench because he was not a registered player, he was signed after player registration, that is why he couldn’t play. Now that he can play, he can fight for a first choice role.

  3. spellBOUND says:

    Stanley Chabalala, did dauda pay u to say this??? first off, do u make the lineups??? no, the coach does, and in his mind, dauda is no where close to starting. unless they fire the coach and you replace him, u have no say in who plays. how is a #1 rotting on the bench??? ONLY IN SA.

    So Dauda will either be in the post or will be on the bench.” HAHAHA, with a big emphasis on the latter. dauda will NEVER claim this move was a mistake, because AA still plays him in post. this is an insult to kwaresay.

  4. Boro says:

    I blame AA for making a goalkeeoer who even do not qualify to warm the bench in a team like orlando pirates his no. 1 whilst a regular goalkeeper such as kwaransey warm the bench of BS.

  5. Chipolopolo1 says:

    And this is the keeper that wil be in between posts wen u guys meet germany and portugal. If playn then this wil be forced on the coach.

  6. adam4eve Ag.Swedruni ba says:

    @spellBounds…i think really agree with ur comment…AA i think is trying to tell Ghanaians that nevertheless his policy of if any player is inactive in his club is automatically not guranteed any place in squad in BSs but Dauda is exceptional and untouchable..Is he (AA) fulfilling his promise he made to ghanaians at all…Though Fatau was the one in the post through out the qualifiers but i still preffer Kwarasey to be in the post again if we talk of who is active in his club..
    Fatau has problem with calculations of getting his hands to the ball in the air than Kwarasey if anyone noticed recently.Besides Kwarasey has much experience playing with the white people than Fattau…i personally wouldn’t blame fatau that much if he does not excel in the WC should he be made to be our number one goal keeper but AA.
    Statement made by their technicall director Stanley i think was baseless and cannot hold water.i think he was just saying this to calm down the indomable heart of Fatau and Ghanaians as whole..Fatau made a worst decision to make that move to Orlando Pirate,and i think there is no way to revive that than to come back…am done!!

    • Asem says:

      and since you’re not trainning them;you just keep your preference to yourself abi !!

      • spellBOUND says:

        asem, be careful o, why r u here, if not to express your comments. if u dont agree with adam4eve, then u can keep ur comments to urself as well. how does our #1 goalkeeper playing a 3rd string role for orlando pirates of all teams not defy logic.

        my main problem with dauda is not necessary his height, but his failure to disguise that height disadvantage by coming out on EVERY aerial ball, hence failing to get a finger on the ball. think about that statement for a minute, and them comment.

  7. adam4eve Ag.Swedruni ba says:

    @ Asem…if u just read my comment well i DID say i preffer Kwarasey to Fatau(The Lion).Pls guys lets rally support for this committed Kwarasey to come back in our post agiain.i bet he would bring out the best in him in the WC.Kwarasey is my number one if you ask me…am done!!

  8. banger says:

    ALL U GUYS RUNNIN YOUR MOUTHS ARE U THE COACH.DURIN THE BLACKSTARS TRAINING AREU GUYS ON THE FIELD?

  9. Assemblyman says:

    Habah!Keeping fatau Dauda in our posts kill the confidence of active keepers like Kwarasey and Daniel Agyei..So whats Akwasi Appiah doing about this..This sort of politics must stop..habah!

  10. Papadinho says:
