Ghana coach get assurances from Orlando Pirates over first team chances for Fatau Dauda

Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah has secured assurances from coaches at Orlando Pirates to give first team chances to goalkeeper Fatau Dauda.

The first choice Black Stars goalkeeper is yet to make his debut for the Buccaneers since his move from AshantiGold last summer.

Dauda missed the registration for Pirates’ Champions League campaign over his late arrival and has since played second fiddle to Senzo Meyiwa in the South African league.

The 28-year-old’s situation is a major concern for several Ghanaian football fans who are unhappy with the inactiveness of the first choice Black Stars goalkeeper with a few months to the World Cup in Brazil.

Coach Akwasi Appiah has also admitted to the worrying situation but says he has secured some assurances of the sort from the coaches at Orlando Pirates about his goalkeeper after a recent discussion.

“As at last year the situation was quite worrying but I think it was due to his registration issues for the Champions League,” Appiah told Metro FM.

“We had discussions with him and the coaches there and they have given assurances that they will give him the chance.

“So we hope he gets the chance and not only for Fatau Dauda but for all other Ghanaian players so that their form will pick up.”

Dauda has been Ghana’s first choice since impressing at the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.

It was on the back of his impressive display that earned him the move to Orlando Pirates in the summer.

    Why are we worrying ourselves as if fatau is the only keeper in ghana.This is an insult to kwarrasey and all good keepers in ghana

    • OGYA says:

      To add to your point. What the FUCK is Akwesi Appiah meddling in the playing chances of Fatau DauDa. You biased son of a bitch, is Fatau the only goalkeeper we have. We have a world class goalkeeper in Adam Kwarasey and you wasting our precious time calling his coach to get assurances? Now we know why?

      I would be very very happy if the Black Stars get so disgraced at the world cup so you can loose your mother fucking job. YOU IDIOT

  2. Papadinho says:

    What does his club probs got to do with AA?
    Stupidness.

  3. Wee ba says:

    Eeiiii so is kwarasey nt a goal keeper? Smh too much corruption

  4. Gogee says:

    This is crap, Give the spot to Kwarasey, for Christ sake, the guy won a league title n best keeper in a better league compared to Dauda’s S.A. league where he is not even a bench warmer. Give Adam, the confidence. I refer u to watch the Ghana vrs Brazil match again. Kwarasey needs our support n confidence.

  5. Papadinho says:

    I have the feeling they will give him the needed chance and he get disgraced with 6 goals in the pocket. That will be the end of him at Orlando P. Kwasias3m paaaa nie aaahhh we have Kwarasey and still this baboons are still relying on juju using Dauda. hhhmm Ghana is daamn corrupt woow.
    Dauda will break his legs then all this baboons will start supporting Kwarasey then. Prayers will be rained on Dauda and untill he tells us the truth about what he had been doing to Kwarasey.
    God bless

    How special some people are!!! My condolences, Sammy Adjei!!!!

  7. Papadinho says:

    This juju using keeper will rot on the bench. time for Kwarasey

    • spellBOUND says:

      papa… take it easy. we are all frustrated. but the blame here should go towards AA, not dauda. im in support of kwaresey getting the start 100%, but i cant help but be sympathetic to dauda, as i feel people associate him with juju due to his looks. not everyone is born with the best looks, and in this day and age, believers in juju needs to get their brains checked.

  8. Capo di Capi says:

    Why should AA go talk to Pirate coach about Dauda. Is he the only keeper in GH ? This is a disgrace to gh football. I feel sorry for players who wants to switch nationality to play for gh. What a shame!

  9. spellBOUND says:

    wow, i can’t believe what i’m reading. if this isn’t favoritism towards a player, then i dont know what it is??? does AA request assurances from chelsea for essien, marseille for ayew, or any of the other players seeking first team action??? this is troubling news. im highly disappointed that a coach has to intercede. this move is only to eleviate concerns of those claiming dauda should not be starting…. AA, instead chasing what u dont have, appreciate and work with what u have. GIVE KWARESEY A F!@#ING CHANCE..

    i couldn’t understand why AA kept on playing dauda in the qualifiers even when he was rotting on the bench in SA of all places… NOW, I KNOW why…….

    this is frustrating to say the least, i dont even know how to relay my anger..
