Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Meyiwa ready to keep Fatau Dauda on the bench

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has welcomed competition from Ghana's Fatau Dauda insisting he wants to keep the Black Stars keeper on the bench.

Meyiwa, who was preferred to the sturdy Ghanaian throughout the whole of last season, believes competing for the number one jersey against the 29-year-old has made him a better player.

Dauda played twice for the Black Stars at the 2014 World Cup and Meyiwa insists he wished his team-mate well before he jetted off to Brazil.

"For him [Fatau Dauda] it was a great opportunity to go and play in the World Cup , it is a great competition for him and every player that plays in it," Meyiwa said ahead of the Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday.

"I wished him before he left, all the best, competition is always there. To become the best you need competition, you can't expect to be alone, so for me having someone like him is a good thing.

"Competition is nothing new, you have to take it as a man," the Bafana Bafana glovesman added.

    masa, pirates did't put a gun to dauda's head to put pen to paper. stop blaming your problems on racism. with regards to racism, do your part and let the chips fall where they may. dauda didn't do himself any favors by moving to SA.... oh, i mis-spoke... he did himself a lot of favors by paying off greedy fools in the GFA... they will all get whats coming to them.
