Under-fire Pirates goalkeeper Meyiwa won't make way for Fatau Dauda

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has sent a strong message to those who want him to make way for Ghanaian number one Fatau Dauda insisting he is the best for the job.

Meyiwa has come under fire for his recent performances for the team which has prompted fans to ask that he should be replaced by Dauda who is yet to play an official match for the club.

Meyiwa, who conceded two goals against SuperSport United this past weekend, said the fans shouldn’t judge his ability based on the number of goals that he has conceded this season, but based on his contribution to the team.

“Clean sheets are not what you should be focusing on as a goalkeeper. Clean sheet is a bonus,” Meyiwa told Goal.

“A goalkeeper is not judged by the number of goals conceded, because best goalkeepers in Europe concede goals, but that doesn’t make them bad goalkeepers,” he said.

The 26-year-old Bafana shot-stopper admitted that the absence of Siyabonga Sangweni and Patrick Phungwayo has destabilised his defence, but he described Rooi Mahamutsa’s absence as “a big loss to the club”.

Mahamutsa is still nursing a shoulder injury, and Meyiwa is optimistic that the 32-year-old defender will return at the right time to help Pirates win the league title.

“Pirates are a big club, and whoever plays in front of me is definitely great. Rooi Mahamutsa is a big loss to the club at the moment, but we’ve been winning games [without him], and I think he will back and make the team click and help us fight for the league title,” he added.

    He is so right in this case. He is far better than FATAU. Fatau needs to learn to be patient. Just because you want to play in the world cup doesn’t mean he has to just hand over the post to you.

    Meyiwa, needs to make Fatau sweat.

  2. Papadinho says:

    Don’t even give him the chance to sit on the bench. Dude should be dropped from the Black stars. Kwasia keeper, juju man. You will rot on the till you stop using juju on Kwarasey!! AA is a big fool and is the most corrupted coach in the history of the Black stars. Taking money from juju dauda is gonna end your life because that money comes with juju behind it. Kwarasey is that dude and everybody knows it.
    Bless!!!

      It is not AA who is taking money from Dauda. It is that goalkeeper trainer, Yakubu, who is causing all these problems. Dauda pays him money and also hired him as his personal trainer, paying him weekly or monthly salary with fat bonuses even more than what he makes as Black Stars trainer. If this is not BRIBE then I don’t know what is. This transaction between them is unhealthy and will create ill sentiments among the players in the Black Star camp. No wonder Yakubu is saying Kwarassey lack confidence. How could he give Kwaarassey the nod over Dauda whose hand feeds him? Nyantakyi and Akwasi Appiah should address this situation before it gets out of hand. Both Dauda and Yakubu should be dropped from the squad.

    “Clean sheets are not what you should be focusing on as a goalkeeper. ”

    is this man talking out of his ass??? if you’re not in post to prevent goals, then what are u in there for? to boost team morale? to add to the numbers? his statement is very contradictory. good goalkeepers do not concede many goals as no one can keep a clean sheet every time. but ur mindset every time should be to keep a clean sheet. why does he think AA gave up on kwaresay? i can’t believe what I’m reading…. its sad if he actually believes what he’s saying.

  4. Dan says:

    Well, Kwarasey conceded some goals with the BS and he is still being punished. I hope AA is reading this.

  5. Blow says:

    Don’t worry folks, his time will come and me and you will be the judge.

  6. Assemblyman says:

    Who posted this rubbish!!…”Under-fire Pirates goalkeeper Meyiwa won’t make way for Fatau Dauda”..Why GSN,do you want to go remove a goalkeeper who is already doing well with a caterpillar,willy nilly?
    Listen to yourself again….Babylon dudes!!..
