News reaching the Siya crew is that Orlando Pirates technical director Stanley Tshabalala and coach Roger De Sa are on a collision course with regards to goalkeeper Fatau Dauda's position at Bucs.
This is after De Sa was quoted in the media as saying that Dauda is the third choice goalkeeper at Pirates behind Senzo Meyiwa and Brighton Mhlongo.
But according to SpyGhana.com, Tshabalala told Angel FM that the Ghana goalkeeper will be assuming the number one goalkeeper role soon.
“Dauda is not the third choice goalkeeper; he is not the second choice goalkeeper. He will be the first choice goalkeeper and he is going to compete with the goalkeeper who played the African championship,” Tshabalala told the Kumasi-based radio station.
“Dauda should be playing because we have just received his card after registration. So he is going to be with the team as from Monday as we speak. We are also worried because we heard from our administrative officer what the manager said that Dauda is the third choice goalkeeper,” added Tshabalala.
“Dauda cannot be the third choice goalkeeper for us when he is the first choice goalkeeper for Ghana.
“Our goalkeeper is not even the second choice in South Africa so how can we say that Dauda is the third choice goalkeeper? No, no, no. Just that we are not playing this weekend but on Monday. So Dauda will either be in the post or will be on the bench,” concluded Tshabalala.
Meanwhile, as reported by the Siya crew in this week's Soccer-Laduma, Dauda is keen on a move away from Pirates to get game time to increase his chances of being included in the Ghana squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
