I decided to leave Enyimba FC because of betting – Ex-Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda

Former Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has disclosed why he decided to leave Nigerian giants Enyimba FC few years ago. 

According to 37-year-old, most the players of Enyimba FC were involved in betting, hence he opted to leave to the club.

He is currently without a club after leaving Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities.

“There’s one particular reason why I decided to leave Enyimba FC. It’s all because of betting. It can completely destroy football. You know Nigeria is a big country. Sometimes, we can be on the road for two days travelling for an away game. We will go and lose a game but when we come on the bus, you will see some players happy,” Dauda told Angel TV.

“You will see some players pressing their phones and checking scorelines of other league games. I later got to find out from one of our guys that some of the players in the team were betting on our matches. They were fixing the games and it was shocking.”

He added, “It was the reason I decided to leave. I can’t be part of this and it was a waste of time playing in games when some people have already planned the outcome.”

Dauda was in the Black Stars squad for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, and was the first choice keeper for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations edition of the tournament.
