Former Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says the decision to leave Nigerian giants, Enyimba FC is as a result of betting issues.
Dauda, who has capped 26 times for the Black Stars had spell with the Nigerian outfit between 2016 to 2019.
The 37-year-old made this revelation on the back of match-fixing scandals in the Ghana Premier League.
Speaking on Angel TV, the former Ashantigold and Legon Cities shot stopper shockingly disclosed he departed Enyimba FC because some of the players in the team were betting on their games.
“There’s one particular reason why I finally decided to leave Enyimba FC. It’s all because of betting. Betting can completely destroy football”
“You know Nigeria is a big country. Sometimes, we can be on the road for two days traveling for an away game. We will go and lose a game but when we come on the bus, you’ll see some players happy”
“You’ll see some players pressing their phones, checking score lines 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. It was shocking. It was the reason I decided to leave because 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” he said.
Fatau Dauda is currently a free agent after leaving Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities at the end of last season.
