Ghana goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda has revealed the reason behind his failed stint with South African side Orlando Pirates.
Dauda made a move from Ashanti Gold to Orlando Pirates after an impressive campaign at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, a tournament Ghana finished fourth.
The 35-year-old had a difficult time with the PSL side where he managed just three competitive outings for the Club.
The presence of former Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa made it difficult for the Ghanaian to break into the starting team.
“I went at the time where the goalkeeper (Senzo Meyiwa) was the captain, thus Senzo,” the goalkeeper now on the books of Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities spoke on GTV Sports+
“I learnt a lot from him (Senzo), in fact he was one of the best in the South African League at that time and he had earned a call-up to the South African National team.”
Lack of first team opportunities forced Dauda to cross carpet to fellow South African side Chippa United where another tough spell forced him to return to Ashanti Gold.
He featured for the Black Stars at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil where he appeared in games against Germany and Portugal.
