Orlando Pirates and Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has told Goal that he is not intimidated by the presence of Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda in the team.

The Ghanaian shot-stopper was signed from Ashanti Gold last month to provide much needed competition to Meyiwa, following the departure of Moeneeb Josephs who has since joined Bidvest Wits.

“He is a very good goalkeeper. He got the experience too, but I am not intimidated by that because we are team-mates and not enemies,” Meyiwa told Goal.

Meyiwa has cemented his place in Roger de Sa’s starting line-up, but he is aware that he needs to continue doing well with Dauda patiently waiting for his chance.

“I am a hard worker and I think my performance has proved that, but I need to continue working hard and also continue doing well if I want to play regularly.

“Fatau is a great keeper and I know that he is waiting for his chance just like I was waiting for mine, but he will have to fight for the number one jersey,” added Meyiwa.
