Fatau Dauda boosted as Orlando Pirates new coach set to takeover
Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda gets new coach at Orlando Pirates

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has been handed a career lifeline at Orlando Pirates with new coach Vladimir Vermozovic set to take over after being granted a work permit.

The Black Stars shot-stopper has struggled for games under then coach Roger De Sa.

Dauda’s bench-warming duties continued after De Sa’s exit when Eric Tinkler was handed temporary reigns.

The 28-year-old could be favoured under new coach Vermozovic who will officially take over next week after finally being granted a work permit.

"He just received his work permit and I can confirm that he can now officially assume his duties as head of the technical team," Pirates administrator Floyd Mbele revealed.

"He will not be on the bench on Saturday when we take on University of Pretoria, but from Sunday he officially takes over from Eric Tinkler who has been our interim coach."

Vermezovic, an ex-Kaizer Chiefs boss, was recruited by Bucs following Roger de Sa's exit from Mayfair at the end of January.

Dauda could get the chance to dethrone regular Senzo Meyiwa with all players keen to impress the new boss.

    always a coach must be fired or resign to boast the chances of fatau at pirates.well,do you guys always pray in hope of that to happen or what?this i cant understand.. besides mr.reporter why didnt you leave your name beneath or above the article like your other colleagues?this is seriously unprofessional bad journalism. my advise to you,your hungry colleagues and nassamu yakubu,that useless keeper's trainer is to leave fatau's meagre wages at pirates..massa,the brother only earns around $5000 a month..you journalist are collecting your share at the beginning of each month,the goalkeeper's trainer is also being paid while fatau takes care of his entire family from this same money.how much could he be left with after paying all these monies to you..instead,you guys are not doing himself any good but killing his opportunity to live well after retiring from the game.like other broke ex footballers who you guys report on..you wouldnt spare fatau in his old age should he live an impoverish life...please,leave fatau alone to save for his future..thank you
