Jordaan must do the honourable thing and resign: Ncobo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Former PSL general manager Andile Ace Ncobo says president of the South African Football Association, Danny Jordaan, must do the honourable thing and resign from his position.

Ncobo says,  Jordaan who is now facing formal rape charges, must resign immediately from his position to save the image of football in the country.

Musician Jennifer Ferguson laid formal charges against the football administrator in Johannesburg on Human Rights Day.

Ncobo succeeded in forcing the cancellation of SAFA’s elective congress which was supposed to be held this weekend.

The former school principal asked for the intervention of the world’s football governing body, FIFA, when he discovered that SAFA had violated their own statutes in organising the elections of the new executive committee.

Now Ncobo says Jordaan must just resign for the sake of preserving the good image of football in the country.

The 50-year old Ncobo says they will go all out to garner support from women within football to force Jordaan out.

Ncobo says they will also be approaching SAFA sponsors, who will not want to be associated with a leader who is facing serious charges.

Ncobo says he was forced to resign as PSL General Manager after allegations that he failed a polygraph test during the bribery and corruption investigations in professional refereeing.

Two more women are expected to lay similar rape charges against Jordaan this week.

The South African Football Association was not available for comment.
