Former Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has said fans of Kumasi Asante Kotoko blocked his proposed transfer to Kotoko in January. A deal to sign the former Ashanti Gold shot-stopper but the deal did not go through and ‘the Lion’ has now lifted the lid on what transpired.
“I’m an experienced goalkeeper and my presence could’ve done a lot for the team even in terms of serving as a motivation for some of the players,” Fatawu offered reasons why it would have been a plus to have him at the club.
“But, I think there was some displeasure from certain quarters of the supporters of the club. If you look at how important club fans are, you can’t underrate that,” the former Legon Cities captain noted.
Well, as a result, the transfer could not materialize as according to Fatawu “So it ended up that we had to shelve the plans in order not to spark any unrest within the supporters”.
The former CHippa United goalie was sought as cover for the current goalkeepers led by Danlad Ibrahim and Kwame Baah after the exit of Razak Abalora who signed for Moldovan club Sheriff Tiraspol. Felix Annan who was with the club for a very long had departed prior to the start of the season after the expiration of his contract.
