    Hmm as3m ooo so why turning down Belgium’s top flight and opt for six month loan in south Africa. Yebr3 wo.

    Were the Belgium’s not ratjer looking for a comedian or a proper pole stopper?

    This leaves Pirates without a trusted second choice keeper. Actually, it surprised many Pirates fans and many other football fans that an international goal keeper played second fiddle to a an error-prone Senzo Meyiwa who at one stage was going through off-the-field personal crises. Fatau put in a lot of hard work apparently he even hired a private personal trainer, I’m starting to doubt Japhet Borges’s credentials (Pirates Goalkeeper coach). Good luck to Fatau Dauda at Chippa United.

    How we let an international goal keeper go on loan when we only have an untested youngster with second division league experience as a back-up keeper beats logic. How this guy played second fiddle to an error-prone Senzo Meyiwa who at one stage was going through off-the-field personal crises shocked many Pirates fans. I’m starting to doubt Japhet Borges ability and credentials as a goal keeper trainer. Good luck to Dauda at Chippa United.

    this makes it the 17nth signing by Chippa united making them to have 5 keepers does that make it as simple for Dauda…..i doubt.theres Tsepo Motsoaneng there who excelled when Chippa played Kaizer chiefs at Nelson Mandela Bay stadium and he was signed that day with the same promise of first team football…let’s wait and see..

    I said it ystday that a new club ll be career saving for dauda and there it is!

  10. Dr Who says:

    Fatau,I wish you well…I know you will make it

  11. selfmade says:

    Whenever i say something here, people love to take me on but nevertheless, it always comes to pass!

    I said that a new club is all that dauda needed to start afresh and probably shut off his critics for good, people were saying that he should take the money and relax but it seems dauda had similar idea like mines!

    The PR system in pirates were deliberately working against dauda and if he doesn’t take care, I similar thing LL happen in his new club too! Mark it!

    All the Ghanaian players in the south African league are bench warmers regardless of whether u good or not and is a deliberate plot!

    Ghanaian players should stop going to south Africa or the Maghreb/ north Africa and rather concentrate on the Arabian peninsula becasue that’s where the money is!!

    good luck Fatau full support give you.. and u will shine… and all haters gonna die

  13. Mr south africa says:

    self made…luckily our league is no obscure league…it’s up there with the best…if a player succeeds here he can then succeed anywhere.Belgian league is lower in standard compared to the PSL and financially viable for any player be it European or African.

    if these players come here they should strip off the tag of being “my countries best” because here they still have to prove themselves

    to play in these world’s standard facilities one has to be prepared to work hard,
    South Africa like the English national team is reforming the football national team which means the utermination of local players.

    that makes it a risk taken at your own peril to come and expect to go straight in the starting line up. with all this said I rate Ghanaian players very very high.
