SAFA don’t need the influence of Patrick Motsepe in World Cup qualifier petition – Danny Jordaan

President of the South Africa Football Association [SAFA], Danny Jordaan has reiterated that they don’t need the influence of CAF President Patrice Motspe in their bid to get FIFA to order a rematch of their final World Cup qualifier against Ghana.

South African football governing body have lodged a petition to FIFA seeking a rematch of their final World Cup qualifier.

Bafana Bafana were defeated by a lone goal with Andre Ayew scoring the only goal of the game in the first half of the game.

The goal propelled the Black Stars to book a place in the playoffs of the World Cup.

SAFA have cited match manipulation and bias officiating from referee Marguette Ndiaye and Danny Jordan says involving Motsepe in the matter will compromise the merit of their case.

“I have not spoken to him on this matter,” he said in a presser on Wednesday.

“He is the President of CAF, we have placed our matter before FIFA.

“We must build our case on an objective basis and that’s why we are not using any internal people.

“We must not involve the CAF President opportunistically because if he was not from South Africa and from some other country there would not have been a call to say: “can’t you go to the CAF President.

“We are not going to him and he must not get involved.

“We are a member of CAF and FIFA and we have hosted a World Cup so we can fight our battles,” he added.
