Jordaan Congratulates Absa Premiership Champions

The South African Football Association has congratulated Bidvest Wits for being crowned Absa Premiership champions for the first time in the history of the club.

Wits claimed a 2-0 win over Polokwane on Wednesday, May 17, which subsequently saw the Braamfontein-outfit being crowned Absa Premiership champions for the first time in the club’s history.

Speaking to SAFA’s official website, President Jordaan said, “The league title race is a marathon so it is always key to finish strongly hence they say, it’s not how you start that is important but how you finish is key. This holds true for Bidvest Wits who have been crowned champions of the ABSA Premiership.”

“Congratulations to the club management, the players, the coach, their families as well as supporters. They have all done really well.”

Jordaan then went on to reiterate the fact that the Clever Boys will once again be playing among the giants on the African continent next season when they make their run in the CAF Champions League campaign.

“Now you are going to take on the best on the continent, and when you go all the way, you will battle against the best in the world at the FIFA Club World Championship. Ironically, the team you dethroned, Mamelodi Sundowns, went all the way and I am confident that you will emulate them and make South Africa proud,” he said.

“As the Association, we wish you well, including all the teams that will take part in CAF Competitions and we guarantee you our support. I would also like to thank all teams in the PSL for providing entertainment to all South Africans, Africa and global audience,” he added.
