Jordaan Announces SAFA Overhaul

President of SAFA, Danny Jordaan, has announced that SAFA is to embark on a major overhaul of their systems.

Jordaan announced that the organisation would be focussing on development and setting up academies across the country.

Jordaan also denied rumours about a possible replacement for Gordon Igesund already having been selected.

“We have thrown away the drawing board and starting on a new slate,” said Jordaan at a press conference following a 3 Lekgotla of SAFA NEC members.

“If we are to have a national team that can compete with the best in the world, then we have to strengthen development at all levels in order to produce players capable of beating the best in the world.

“We will be working harder to identify and develop promising young women to help them achieve their full potential.

“We intend to place considerable emphasis on school sport and junior leagues.

SAFA aims to set-up football academies in all nine provinces.

“We are able to do this with the co-operation of government at all levels,” said Jordaan.

“The first of these academies is already established in Kwa-Zulu Natal.”

Regarding Igesund Jordaan said, “I am aware that there is speculation surrounding Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund.

“I read in the news that this coach or that coach is coming to take over from Gordon. Well, I want to say that, at the moment, there is no vacancy.”
