COSAFA President: I Resolved A Dispute

COSAFA President Dr Philip Chiyangwa declares he has no beef with anyone

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 16, 2018 04:02 PM

Yesterday’s announcement that Ace Ncobo had withdrawn from the South African Football Association (SAFA) presidential race was a result of an agreement facilitated by COSAFA President Dr Philip Chiyangwa.

The COSAFA President has since told Soccer Laduma following his press briefing yesterday, that he believes the dispute between Ncobo and current SAFA president Dr Danny Jordaan has been resolved and that it would be up to the two gentlemen to maintain the peace moving forward.

Chiyangwa further went to declare that following his intervention on the matter he had no beef with both Ncobo and Jordaan following the agreement both men signed. 

“I have no beef with any South African,” declared Chiyangwa.

"My philosophy has been about peace. You can’t fight with your own people if you want to advance football, that’s why when I see a president fighting with his own members I immediately tell them to stop as fighting doesn’t grow football. 

“That’s why it was important for me to intervene and resolve the matter between Ace and Jordaan,” noted the COSAFA President.  

SAFA’s Elective Congress is expected to proceed as planned on 24 March 2018 where Jordaan is expected to be voted as SAFA president for another term.

Jordaan's friend, no wonder Ace withdrew because he can clearly see ukuthi everything is staged & stands no chance.

Both Jordaan & Khoza are useless in their respective roles. How can they let league title prize money to be R10 million while the are players who cost +R12 million?!... Given the fact that they extended the deal with Absa to 4 more years; it means the prize money will be R10million until 2022. Mxmm this country. Everything is politics. Ayyi Footsek maarn.
