Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda and Orlando Pirates boss Roger De Sa have continued war of words.
The first choice goalie of the Black Stars cannot get a look in for Pirates and the reason given by De Sa has been to question Dauda’s readiness.
Monday saw the Pirates boss repeat that Dauda’s training regimes showed he was still behind Senzo Meyiwa in the sharpness takes.
“I think the coach might have said that because of the pressure the fans and journalist are putting on him to use me in his team. I see there is a lot of pressure on him and I pity him sometimes,” Dauda responded on Ghanaian radio station, Angel FM.
In an interview on Tuesday, the former AshGold keeper went on: “He once made a similar comment about me, but he later came out to clear the air. What I like about Pirates is that the fans like me and they think there are goalkeeping problems so I need to get a starting place.”
“My coach sometimes approaches me and tell me he is impressed with my dedication to training, so I know it is not performance that is making me to warm on the bench,” he went on.
Roger De Sa himself was an experienced goalkeeper in his day, being with Wits University, Moroka Swallows and Mamelodi Sundowns, so it is arguable that he knows what he wants in a ‘keeper.
Pirates are struggling in the PSL as they are several places below – what has over the years been for them – a usual top 3 spot.
