‘Dauda’s Move Could Be A Right Decision’

Fatau-DaudaCoach James Kwesi Appiah feels Fatau Dauda’s decision to leave South African side Orlando Pirates over lack of activity could be a right decision.

The 28-year-old has declared his intention to leave the Buccaneers to save his international career after failing to secure playing time at the club.

Dauda has been advised to quit the Absa Premier Soccer League side for a club where he can find regular action.

However the former AshGold keeper has told Accra-based Oman FM Pirates head coach Roger De Sa has assured him of a place at the club.

But Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah feels it will be in place for Dauda to leave for a club where he can play regularly.

“In January most players will be seeking to leave to clubs where they can play more for their club. I think if he decides to leave on that score it will not be bad,” he told Accra-based Oman FM.

The 54-year-old has stated that only active players will have places in his squad for the 2014 World Cup finals.

Meanwhile, Ghana will set camp in Marceio for their 2014 FIFA World Cup finals Brazil, the Ghana News Agency has reported.

But the Ghana Football Association is yet to announce the team base camp after inspecting facilities following last week’s draw in Bahia.

The venue is considered to be closer to the three cities for their Group G matches and also for its mild temperature.

According to information, Marceio is about an hour drive to Natal, Fortaleza and Brasilia where the first round matches will be played.

“The fine weather conditions which is similar to Ghana and all the other cities the team will play influenced this decision as well,” an anonymous Ghana FA source is quoted by the Ghana News Agency.

“It is expected that the conditions will be around 29 degrees Celsius at that time, and also proximity and nearness to the venues.”

Ghana will play USA in Natal on 16 June and then Germany in Fortaleza five days later and Germany in Brasilia on 26 June.
