Cape Town- Former Ghana international goalkeeper Joe Carl has urged the current Black Stars and Orlando Pirates shot-stopper, Fatau Dauda, to leave the Soweto giants in the upcoming January transfer window period due to lack of game time.

Dauda is yet to make his official debut for the Buccaneers since joining them from the Ghanaian side Ashanti Gold FC during the off-season.

Last week, the Pirates head coach Roger De Sa confirmed to Sport24 that Dauda is his third choice after Senzo Meyiwa and Brighton Mhlongo although the Ghanaian helped his country qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

“Dauda is our third-choice ‘keeper.” De Sa told Sport24 last week.

“Brighton Mhlongo is our second choice and Dauda is often away on national duty.

“He needs to be patient too, and hopefully his time will come just like Senzo.” He added.

According to the Spyghana.com, Carl said it will be a wise move for Dauda to leave the Happy People so that he can have some regular game time ahead of the World Cup next June.

“I In my view Fatau should leave the club,” Carl said

“It’s not proper for our number one keeper to warm the bench especially with the World Cup just six months away.

“He should seek a new club because if he doesn’t it will be difficult to justify his inclusion in the team.”

It remains to be seen if Dauda will exit the Pirates camp or remain to fight for his place between the sticks in the second half of the season.
