“You can not be schooled by a primary school teacher if you are a university professor” – SAFA boss Danny Jordaan hits hard at GFA

Posted by

President of the South African Football Association (SAFA), Danny Jordaan has taken a hit hard at the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

SAFA after the 1-0 defeat to Ghana in the final Group G game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup lodged an official complaint to FIFA against the performance of Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye.

In the protest sent to FIFA by the South Africa FA, the FA accused GFA of match fixing, match manipulation, corruption and bribing the referee and other officials.

FIFA on Wednesday, November 17 informed GFA of South Africa’s protest through an email.

As part of GFA’s defense statement, GFA put on record before FIFA that the protest wasn’t properly logged and SAFA failed to make payment of the protest fee as required by Regulations.

Reacting to the comments, SAFA President, Danny Jordaan said: “You can not be schooled by a primary school teacher is you are a university professor,” he told renowned broadcaster Robert Marawa on his radio show.

“We have delivered the World Cup. It was voted the best World Cup ever on the African continent. We cannot be schooled by people who are in their first year of administration and so we kept quiet.

Danny Jordaan went on to add that it is their democratic right to exercise the provisions and the statuses, stressing that it was inappropriate of GFA to react in the manner in which they did.

Meanwhile, FIFA is expected to announce a verdict on the case in the coming days.

  1. This has nothing to do with the number of years of experience in football . Once beaten that’s the end. Accept the result in good faith & stop tossing about. Its a fact that Ghana established herself as a football nation long before you came around, so that analogy of a primary teacher teaching a university professor doesn’t wash.
