SAFA should be ran by football people not politicians. Danny Jordaan is not a perfect fit. OPINION

We understand that Mr Danny Jordaan played a vital role in making sure that South Africa hosts the 2010 world cup and we shall forever be grateful for that. However our football has to move forward we need new people and fresh ideas to take our football forward. I think South African football is slowly declining you can tell by looking at our national teams recent poor performances. I think the problem it's not only the coach and players selection but our football governing board could be letting us down aswell.

Danny Jordaan has been president of SAFA for so many years and he keeps running for the position and winning but I think we need some change. We cannot keep on using the same formula that is not beneficial for football growth. We real need some positive changes and we need football people to run our football. I'm talking about very experienced intellectual former players the likes of Lucas Radebe , Sibusiso Zuma , Aaron Mokoena, Jimmy Tau just to mention a few.

Someone who played the game can understand and relate to some of the challenges that we might be facing. For instance look at Cameroon they intrusted Samuel Etoo with the job to run their Footabll Association and they have improved a lot. I honestly would like to see former Leeds and Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe stepping up to challenge for such positions to run our Football governing board. He has played the game at the highest level and he has proven to be a noble leader , and everyone respect him.

I said we need football people to run our football because it is no secret that Danny Jordaan is politician , a political member of the ANC party. He is the former Mayor of Port Elizabeth under ANC. I honestly think politics and football they go together so i strongly disagree with the idea of him constantly running SAFA. Our football should be runned by football people not politicians. The population of this country is over 60 million people I'm sure they are many people qualified enough to run our football in the right direction.

I do not have a problem with Mr Danny Jordaan Jordan all im saying you had your many years as President of SAFA , why not give others a chance because I think we real need a different formula. However this is solely based on my opinion I know that people see things differently especially when it comes to football matters.
