“I know people will say we got $100,000. I came home [from Brazil] on a Sunday [June 29th] and rested until Wednesday [July 2nd] when I went to buy a house so that I know that I used the money that I got for something reasonable,” South African-based goalkeeper Fatau Dauda told Metro TV’s Sport File program.
The 29-year-old formed part of a 23-man squad who demanded the payment of $100,000 before playing Ghana’s last game against Portugal. The now infamous demand and threat to boycott the game, forced government to airlift $3 million to Brazil to restore calm in the camp.
Ghanaians have expressed disappointment with the conduct of the players and questioned the commitment of the players who left the tournament without winning a single match – a new record.
“Because I couldn’t win [a single game at the World Cup to get a winning bonus], I went there [Barclays Legon Branch] to withdraw money and not to deposit money,” Dauda narrated.
The location of the property remains unknown but what is known is that the Orlando Pirates player has witnessed an improved standard of living since his move to South Africa and his call-up to the Black Stars.
