Fatau 'hugely disappointed' over Kwarasey's claims against goalkeepers' trainer

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says he will be 'hugely disappointed' in his Black Stars team-mate Adam Kwarasey if he said their shot-stoppers' trainer is not fit for the position in the wake of the team's exit at the 2014 World Cup.

Dauda says he is surprised at Kwarasey’s claims against Nassam

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says he will be ‘hugely disappointed’ in his Black Stars team-mate Adam Kwarasey if he said their shot-stoppers’ trainer is not fit for the position in the wake of the team’s exit at the 2014 World Cup.

Kwarasey launched a scathing attack on Black Stars goalkeepers’ coach Nassam Yakubu this week claiming the ex-Hearts of Oak goalkeeper must be sacked from the national team.

The Norway-based goalkeeper has been on the warpath since losing his starting place to Dauda at the 2014 World Cup after being dropped from the Black Stars starting team against Germany.

Kwarasey has described goalkeepers’ trainer Nassam Yakubu as lacking the requisite quality to propel the team.

The goalkeeper says he is considering his international career three years after opting to star for the Black Stars unless the technical direction of the team is changed.

The goalkeeper told GNA Sports that one does not need to be an astronaut to know Nassam is poor quality.

However, Dauda is surprised at the claims of Kwarasey insisting that competence of Nassam is what led him to the post of the Black Stars goalkeepers’ trainer.

“If it is true that Kwarasey said that Nassam is not a good goalkeepers’ trainer I will be very disappointed in him,” Dauda told Happy FM on Wednesday morning.

“We have been training with Nassam for about two years now so I am surprised to have heard that Adam said this. If indeed he said this why is he making this public now and not previously?,” the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper asked.

“I have known Nassam for a long time and I don’t have a problem with his style of training. His style is normally of what we are to expect in matches and this works for us.

After staying on the bench in the match against USA, Dauda kept the post for Ghana in the matches against Germany and Portugal. However, he could not help the Black Stars to progress beyond the group stages.

Kwarasey, who has over 20 caps for the Black Stars since earning a call-up in 2011, has been battling with Dauda for the chance to be Ghana’s first choice goalkeeper.

    In the same way, Ghanaians are not surprised that you are surprised because you’re the direct beneficiary of Nasam’s actions…favouratism, discrimination, nepotism and what have you. Kwarasey doesn’t need to tell us about what we already knew. If Nasam is a good coach…tell us his goal keeping coaching credentials…you want to know…(i) being your special trainer has confined you to the stands in South Africa (ii) that Kwarasey who was as sharp as the cat when he came to the black stars is now deemed by Nasam, the man who trained him for 2 years as not good enough. Remember Adam in the friendly against Brazil in England? the entire Brazil squad particularly Ronaldinho shook their heads in disbelief cos of his saves. For those who say Adam lacks confidence, it is the sankwa coaches that killed his confidence by openly discriminating against him and treating him as second fiddle to you useless Dauda

    • A concerned citizen says:

      Ghanaba..good points…not only that the type of training method goalkeeperstrainer uses deems Kwarasey good goalkeeping capabilities..that is why you Dauda is a bench warmer in South Africa. Remember Schalke 04 coach questioned coaching AA’s coaching method because whenever Prince joins Ghana camp and comes back it takes time before he shines..Presumably, Appiah also applies bogus method to train the players..There should be a change in the technical handlers.

    Masa keep mute and enjoy warming the bench. Bofoakwa Tano will not even choose u as a third goal keeper. So he taught you how to be a goal keeper or a volleyballi player. You gave a Cheap goal to Ronaldo and your still talking .if not clueless akwasi appiah who will choose you as a keeper. Shambolic keeper . Your team will sack you soon.

  3. Kwesi says:

    THE ONLY REASON THIS UGLY FACE JUJU MAN WANTS THAT COACH IS BCUZ HE IS THE ONLY GK COACH IN THE WORLD THAT WILL START HIM OVER ADAM. IN THE USA GAME I DIDNT SEE ADAM GIVE THE BALL TO THE OPPONENT TO SCORE. LIKE U UGLY FACE DAUDA DID. WE HAD ALL THE MOMENTUM IN THAT GAME AND ANYONE WHO WAS WATCHING COULD SEE THAT WE WERE GOING TO SCORE AND GO THROUGH BUT WE HAD U IM POST AND U CRUSHED OUR WORLD CUP DREAMS. MANY PEOPLE ON THE TEAM MADE MISTAKES BUT I REALLY BLAME THIS WORLD CUP ON U.

  4. Kwesi says:

    AND ALSO U CELEBRATE AFTER EVERY SAVE. IS IT NOT UR JOB TO SAVE? DO I CELEBRATE WHEN I FINISH MY JOB? NO BCUZ ITS MY JOB. THAT IS WHAT UR EXPECTED TO DO. THIS TEAM ISNT THE PLAYGROUND SOCCER U ARE USED TO BENCH WARMING AT PIRATES. Juju man I never want to see u again.

    masa fa wo nkwaseasem ko tribalism nkoaaaaa corrupt Stars

  6. Wee ba says:

    Im not suprised this rotten teeth keeper called dauda is backing nasamu,he choose you a third keeper over two keepers who play regular at their club.corrupted ugly fool God is watching you

  7. AAKa says:

    Shut up , you are very useless keeper. Only another useless coach like Akwesi Appiah will select even Mallam XI will not even pick you .

  8. MALLAM MUSAH.BERLIN-GERMANY says:

    At least some one has to come out to save the poor goalkeepers trainer NASAMU.
    One thing we all have to understand is that ,Fatau will have to defend the trainer in other to secure a place in the Black-stars,rather than securing a place in his club.by being a “KONKONSAH-KEEPER”
    It has come to light that Adam kwaraseys is beeing refused to keep just because he doesnt speak TWI, so they have to dump him,but by far better than fatau.

  9. benny says:

    Yakubu’s training is the result of Dauda’s performance against potugal.l would keep quiet if l were Dauda.
    Stupid goalkeeper.

  10. aa says:

    There are . too many . issues in the black stars since Appiag took over. Honestly there . seems to be disunity amongst the team. It just feels like black stars in the early 90s. None of these players have any respect for Appiag so it makes me wonder why he is still there? Obviously corruption plays a big role

  11. jb says:

    Is the same Appiah who created disunity in black stars camp in the 90s

  12. texas says:

    Oh no fatau Dauda. …you didn’t….no wonder you are stocked in that little box you find yourself. What modern coaching techniques are used by nassam and his boss AA? Adam, Kevin and sulley know exactly what they are saying about black stars technical team not being good enough.

  13. KS says:

    Now I understand why Kwesi Appiah was dethroned as Black Star captain during his playing days. He is too meek to have been the captain in the first place. He couldnt lead. Was too meek to confront referees during games to complain about anything or stand up for his team mates and a convincing way. It was right they made Abedi the captain. sometimes being in the team a long time should not be enough to make you the captain. One must have the credentials to earn it.

  14. Sammi says:

    What is fatau saying over there do you call urself a goalkeeper even hw many matches did u keep in post for ur club. If nt this goalkeepers traineer hw can u be in post for Adam to be sitting at the beach for u to bee in post. Masa u better keep mute over there see that ‘foolish’ goal u gave to ronaldo to put into de net.

  15. How can a clueless coach like Kwesi Appiah retain his position as Black Stars coach while hardworking Elvis A_Ankrah lose his as Min.of Youth & Sports. Even if Elvis must go, what amount of in-investigations were conducted to justify his hasty removal from office?This is why African govts cannot attract the right calibre of people into govt service. The knee-jerk reactions do not solve problems.Player indiscipline,excessive love of money,technical incompetence and paucity of administrative skills are thebanbane of Ghana football.
    As for the Brazilian debacle at the hands of the Germsns, the Brazilians received what they had asked for. After all,they didn’t want the World Cup, so they staged several blooy street protests against their govt. And God heard their cries and grantedtheir wishwish 7-fold.PhiPhilip Lamn and his teamates were just instruments in the entire drama. God is the architect of their demolition. Psychically, what you wish for is what you get. They must shut up and bow their collective heads in shame.Whoever appointed David Luiz Captain for the day must have his his hesd examined. The player has no leadership and organisational skills execpt to run around the field like a headless chicken instead of concentrating on his defensive duties
    atat the rear.PerPerhaps, he wanted to transform himself into talismanic Neymar over night. Regrettably, coach Solaris is too set in his ways to see his way through the problems. He must be the first to go.
    Regarding Ghana, the entire GFA through to theirs playing body must be overhauled. This unethical way of seeking refuge under socalled FIFA non interference nonsense by State authority must be unmasked for sanity and accountability to be established.The Ghanaian tax payer and govt cannot continue to divert scarce resources to support such misadventures.Govt must put its foot down to stem this drain on our scarce national resources.Dismissing ministers is a myopic policy and non productive.After all, Sports Ministers have been dismissed since the days of Dr. Nkrumah,but same and/or similar problems keep on recurring. Let us have a paradigm shift and good results will emerge.

    apparently I saw this guy in his car, enjoying good music….. then I looked up to the skies and said what a nation: where some people get huge amounts of money for doing nothing!. smh

  17. NII-BI says:

    In fact this GSN and many others are the caused of many agitation in our country.
    i personally listened to Fatau. which he didnt says what they have written here.
    I am antiFatua Dauda and that so call goal keeping coach there.
    But he didnt say he would be disappointed in Adams. Rather he spoke positive about Adams.
    What kind of second hand journalist are we having in this country at all…!!!?!!!

    Foolish and useless boy. Go and pay your Ex girlfriend. You have the gust to talk
    you have used mallams on him. Foolish boy

  20. king of kings says:

    Coach Kwesi Appiah got it all wrong by choosing Dauda instead of Kwaresey. This is fact.

  21. Tanko says:

    We told you so from the beginning! Nyantakyi, AA, Nasamu are all birds if the feathers and they flocks together. I will single out Nyantakyi for the fact that he is the lucky FA boss Ghana ever had however, he became power drunk and starts to abuse the powers at his disposal which is making him very unpopular now. It’s time they all go. Ghanaians should stand up and tell these GFA crooks to step aside

  22. GHANA says:

    I wouldn’t even answer a question that demands a comment on what Kwarasey said if I were Daudu. That is Kwarasey’s own assessment of the coach and he is of course entitled to that. Dauda, just give your assessment of the trainer and move without talking about Adams. Duada are proving to everybody both on and off the pitch that you are a local player and can never be a pro. yOU WILL WARM THE BENCH IN PIRATES TILL YOU COME BACK TO DWARFS

  23. NII says:

    WHY ARE YOU SHOCK? HE ALWAYS CHOOSE YOU EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE INCOMPETENT. IF YOU THINK YOU ARE NOT COMPETENT, GO SEE THE GOAL YOU GIFTED TO RONALDO. YOU NEED TO QUIT BLACK STARS

  24. CASSTI ROLAND says:

    FATAU IF YOU CAN LOOK BACK A LITTLE,THE LAST AFCON OF WHICH YOU TOOK US TO FOURTH POSITION.THERE WERE SO MANY LAPSES YOU COMMITTED THAT YOU WEREN’T TO BE CALLED BACK TO THE NATIONAL TEAM AGAIN,JUST LIKE YOUR GIVE AWAY GOAL TO CR7 AND THE GERMAN EQUALIZER,BETTER WATCH YOUR TONGUE YOU GET THE NOD COS OF HAUSA / HAUSA RELATIONSHIP

  25. Bishop says:

    I would like to hold my breath . 2 years so what ? what is his achievement ? what is his pedigree ? was this goalkeeper trainer kept post for black Star or ever being to world cup before ? has he been attached to any of the big clubs around the world for technical knowledge ? By the way how can we hired a coach who has not been play in world cup before to have a experience to compete in the world cup ? We are big Jokers
