Downplayed: Fatau Dauda bemoans being a goalkeeper

Fatau Dauda believes he would be playing for a topnotch European club like Chelsea if he was an outfield player.

‘People should analyze goalkeepers very well. How many times do you see goalkeepers being changed in a game? After the World Cup how many goalkeepers were signed? Fatau Dauda quizzed during an interview with Hot FM.

‘Even outfield players who didn’t kick a ball in the competition managed to secure good deals, after the tournament.

‘I would have been a Chelsea player if I was an outfield player.’
