Published on: 25 March 2020

Ex-Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has insisted that it will be difficult for goalkeepers to train at home and stay in shape during this period where the Coronavirus has halted all football activities.

Just like almost every part of the world, the Ghanaian football season for 2019/2020 has been suspended because of the virus which has been declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

As clubs await the return of football, players have been urged to do personal training while they stay in self-isolation.

In an interview with Happy FM, Legon Cities FC goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has noted that it will be difficult for players who man the post on matchdays.

“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”, Dauda said.

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

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

As of Wednesday, March 25, 2020, Ghana’s confirmed cases of Covid-19 has shot up to 52 and with 2 deaths sadly.
