Former Enyimba Goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda has alleged that illegal activities including match-fixing were among factors behind his departure from the Club.
Speaking on AngelTV a local station in Ghana, Fatau said he left the seven-time NPFL Champions because players were betting on and against the team.
“There’s one particular reason why I finally decided to leave Enyimba FC. It’s all because of betting, betting can completely destroy football,” Fatau a former Ghana International offered.
“You know Nigeria is a big country. Sometimes, we can be on the road for two days travelling for an away game. We will go and lose a game but when we come on the bus, you will see some players happy.
“You will see some players pressing their phones, checking score lines of other league games. I later got to find out from one of guys that the players in the team were betting on our games.
“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 concluded.
