Fatau Dauda waiting patiently for his time at Orlando Pirates

Fatau Dauda says he is waiting for his time at Orlando Pirates

By Patrick Akoto

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says he is bidding for his time at Orlando Pirates in the wake of massive pressure on him to seek a new challenge ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.

Dauda has struggled to establish himself with the Bucs with manager Roger De Sa preferring local man Senzo Meyiwa in post.

The situation with the ex-Ashantigold shot-stopper has not gone done well with many Ghanaians fans with fears his lack of first team action could prove costly at the global piece in the South American country next year.

But the 28-year-old is refusing to press the panic button insisting his time will soon come.

“For now the coach knows why he is keeping me, the team is winning and it is difficult to change a winning team,” Dauda said.

“But God’s time is the best and I will continue to contribute my quota to my club and Ghana.”

Pirates coach Roger De Sa has rated Dauda as his third-choice and that comment has sparked widespread criticism.

    Whilst waiting for your time to be active kwaransey will be taking your place as the BS no. 1. Afterall goalkeeping is about reflexes and you cannot get that if you are a no. 3 goalkeeper . This also means not even in the first team or qualified to warm the bench in a team like Orlando Pirates. Please, AA shine your eyes!

    keeping awaiting inactive goalkeeper in our post kills the confidence of the active ones as Kwarasey and Daniel Agyei..Psychologically it haunts them as a result of this to the point that they might think never to be good enough to keep the posts for the national team.Besides those miscalculation mistakes he made in Egypt’s away game.which resulted in the 2 goals were just as costly as any other mistakes Kwarasey or goalkeeper Braimah had done in the past.The difference was were won a comfortable home game against Egypt.As a result we qualified for the World Cup.This saved him from becoming the talk of town..I think we need to do something before this world stars against this goalkeeping errors..The earlier the better AA.

    @Assemblyman…i think you have taken some words from mouth.i for God sake keep hammering on Dauda’s miscalculations in getting atouched to the balls especial in air balls.Its killing us gradually and trust me all would be shown in the WC tournament if many people could not figure it out in the qualifiers…He(The Lion) is only agressive to be in the WC but in the actual fact to me not too good to be our no.1 goalie.Kwarasey deserves that position
    If he is wiating till his time comes as he claim then i think he would definately be rotten on bench before that ‘impossible dream’ to come true b’cos there is no way a third choice goal keeper would go pass the second one and eventually becomes the first choice…He better should forget it as Kwarasey is taking over our post for us.Akwasi Appiah should shine his eyes..am done!!

      If only Fatau Dauda could reverse his juju charm against Kwarasey.I think mother Ghana will be beneficial at the end of the end..

        There had been instances Kwarasey has been in the most where he visibly couldnt see shot of opponents coming to him.We knew the confidence level of Kwarasey as especially exhibited in our friendly game against Brazil two years ago.If Kwarasey isnt that good how can be captain his club to success in the Norwegian league.And also be named goalkeeper of the season.But should it come to the national side,he is virtually missing in confidence and motivation.How can this happen.There is something more than just fatau dauda wrong..

  4. spellBOUND says:

    chale dauda, seek a move somewhere else. it seems the orlando pirate coach does not have u in his plans at all. i mean, he called u a #3 keeper……

    i blame AA for some of this mess. i mean, if he had dropped dauda a while ago, dauda’s will be harassing his agent to get him off the bench. . instead, his rewards him…… AA, whatever dauda is paying, u, let us know, we will match his offer. LOL

    • Assemblyman says:

      I blame AA too.He was the one who once said,inactive players at club level wouldnt be invited to the national set up.Yet,he is the one breaking rules made.I have seen him drop some players like Daniel Agyei when he was awaiting paper issues at club level in South Africa – as result.While he keeps favorites Dauda and clubless Inkoom in the set up.Can this be player politicking or another monopoly going on within our national set up.Can someone tell me what happened to goalkeeper Razak Brimah after the Japan friendly?He is one active goalkeeper at club level over there in “experienced” Europe.So all of a sudden as a result of petty but correctable mistakes he has been permanently axed from the blackstars roster.These mistakes Mr.Fatau Dauda has made more than a dozen times.Yet he is inactive and gets to stay in the national team while actives ones are benched..Isnt this a shame!!!!!..God help Ghana..

  5. HIS AGENT IS WORKING REALLY HARD says:

    Have you guys realised how Ghanasoccernet has jumped to his defense running a lot of articles about him. They did the same for Mohammed Abu Man City to get into the team we took to African Cup 2012 when the more talented and in form at that time, Quincy Owusu-Abeyie could have been there
