Former Black Stars goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda is pleading with the Ghana Football Association to set up a goalkeeping department to critically analyse performances of goalkeepers in the country.

According to the Legon Cities captain, a department focused on goalkeeping could also unearth talents in the country.

“I will suggest to the Ghana Football Association to open a goalkeeping department, so that after every game goalkeepers will be monitored on their performances. Its also an opportunity to identify more talents”, Fatau told Happy FM.

Meanwhile, the ex-Ashantigold goalie revealed the difficulties in keeping fit because of the break in the league due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

“It’s difficult to train at home at this point. As a goalkeeper you will need endurance and you will have to train so you can maintain your composure and reflexes.

“Goalkeeping is different from the outfield players, so as a goalkeeper you need to adopt different methods to train whilst at home”, he said.

“The goalkeeping department is different that is why they have a special coach assigned for the role”, he added.
