“I left Enyimba because of betting” – Fatau Dauda

Posted by

Former Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has revealed that the paramount reason why he left Nigerian fold Enyimba was because of betting.

The veteran goalkeeper made this revelation while speaking on betting and match fixing which has become prevalent in the Ghana Premier League in recent years.

“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 travelling for an away game,” Fatau Dauda told Angel TV.

“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, and 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 added.

Fatau Dauda joined Enyimba in 2016 but left the team in 2019 and signed for Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities that same year.

The 37-year old left Legon Cities at the end of the 2020/21 season and is currently without a club.
