South African giants Orlando Pirates have rubbished talks that their Ghana international goalkeeper Fatau Dauda will leave the club in January.
The Black Stars first-choice shot-stopper is yet to see any action with the Sea Robbers since arriving in the summer, prompting Ghana officials to press the panic button whiles others are advising him to leave on loan for more playing time.
However, an administrator of the former continental masters Floyd Mbele tells KickOff that Dauda is going nowhere.
“Dauda has a contract with us and I don't know why people are making this an issue,” Mbele stated. “We have spoken to Dauda and the coach in Ghana has spoken to our coach. He understands the situation.”
Dauda could lose his place in the Black Stars ahead of the 2014 World Cup should he still remains inactive at club level.
