Mashaba: Our football will continue to go down under Jordaan
Former Bafana Bafana coach, has slammed the SA Football Association, saying he fears the beautiful game in the country will continue to ‘go down’ under the leadership of Danny Jordaan.
“I mean, how does a president [Jordaan] talk to you about football systems when he did not play football? That’s why we are having problems,” said Mashaba during Ledwaba’s presidential launch in Houghton.
“It’s not that we hate some people. No, it is because we have stagnated as a football nation, and we are not progressing.”
“Whoever takes over, we want to see a new approach. It is 26 years since we won the Africa Cup of Nations [on home soil in 1996], and we are always going down. If we were at the same level, maybe it would be better,” added Mashaba.
“Ria knows it all. She once had a football team [Ria Stars], and she understands football terms. She knows what is happening and what is needed.
