Former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda is getting his career back on track and is looking to prove himself with Ghana again.
It was difficult for Dauda in South Africa where the late Senzo Meyiwa was in sensational form and kept the Ghanaian out of the first team.
He’s now at Ashanti Gold and wants to be the Black Stars no.1 keeper again. Dauda made a name for himself with the Ghana national team down the years, and had retained his squad place in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
He also played in the 2014 Fifa World Cup with the Black Stars despite hardly turning out for Pirates.
At the moment Razak Brimah is the country’s number one keeper for Avram Grant, but Dauda believes he has a chance to prove that he’s better.
“The number one position is no one’s permanent position [and] with hard work I can still become number one,” Dauda told Starr FM.
“If you want to be a great goalkeeper, you need to learn a lot. If you are there [as the starter], don’t think you have finished.
“As long as you are in the game, there could be mistakes or ups and downs, that is where you need to be strong.
“Now Razak is playing and we are winning.”
Other competitors hoping to take the keepers glovers include Portland Timbers’ Adam Kwarasey.
