Star’s Goolie to Request Loan – Move

Fatau-DaudaOrlando Pirates’ Ghana international goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has revealed that he will request a January loan move if he continues to sit on the bench.

Dauda, who will likely head to the 2014 FIFA World Cup as Ghana’s number one, has not played a single minute for Pirates since joining them at the start of the 2013/14 season.

He has been kept out by Senzo Meyiwa, who appears to be well ahead in the race for the goalkeeper position, meaning Dauda could be left with no competitive football going into the World Cup.

“I went to the coach [Roger de Sa] the last time and I had a chat with him about playing time. He explained that because I wasn’t registered for the Champions League he couldn’t play me in that competition,” Dauda told Laduma.

“Also in the PSL, over 10 matches have been played but we have played just five games. So definitely my chance will come.

“But if I continue to be benched, I will request a loan move elsewhere in the January transfer window if I cannot be assured regular game time at Pirates,” he added.

Rashid Iddi has been confirmed as the substantive coach of Ebusua Dwarfs following the departure of Professor Anthony Mintah.

Iddi replaces Mintah who has left his post following criticism over his commitment to the club.

The Cape Coast-based side have confirmed the ex-Asante Kotoko player will take full charge of the club until the end of the season.

“Iddi is the new man in charge now. He has been working as an assistant for a very long time and will continue to take charge of the team,” Operations manager John Ansah said

Professor Mintah jumped out before he was pushed after being accused of showing little commitment to the club.

Iddi will take full charge of the club ahead of the visit of Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

*Inter Allies coach Herbert Addo has refused to give up on the club’s fight against relegation despite being bottom of the table with a game to spare to end the first half of the season.

The Premier League new boys lost 2-0 against local rivals Amidaus Professionals to concede their 11th defeat of the campaign, leaving them languishing at the bottom of the table with a paltry nine points from 14 games.

They find themselves at least eight points from safety but Addo is adamant they can still pull themselves out of trouble.

“There’s no way we’re conceding that [relegation],” he said

“We threw everything at Amidaus on Sunday. Unfortunately we came up against a brick wall and lost in the process.

“The League is far from over. We have many matches to play and so we’re certainly not out at all.”

Allies will next travel to Tarkwa to face Medeama on Sunday December 15.
