SAFA On Plan To Wipe Out Age Cheating

Danny Jordaan, the incumbent SAFA president, has suggested a plan to wipe out the scourge of age cheating in the football fraternity.

In his address to upcoming coaches who are working on their badges at SAFA and CAF level, the veteran administrator said it was their responsibility to help eradicate the scandals that usually take over from the amateur ranks.

“Africa has won almost all of FIFA’s junior tournaments from u17, u20 and the Olympics on numerous occasions but have never reached the final of the senior men’s FIFA World Cup. This is because in most cases African teams field over-aged players in these junior tournaments and when the same players finally graduate to the senior national team, they will already have passed their peak. This is a serious indictment on us as Africans,” Jordaan was quoted on the SAFA official website.

The statement also went on to say that Jordaan had “observed the same trend during the Pan African Schools tournament held in Kinshasa in DRC recently where most countries fielded seemingly over-aged players.”

As a result, the team of football educators gathered at Fun Valley (SAFA’s technical centre), were urged by the SAFA boss to play their part.
