Your history as a top administrator in SA football has been well documented and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say you had their backing when you had ambitions of running for a seat in Caf and Fifa as well.
It didn’t happen and you didn’t just try once, you did that dance a few times and it didn’t work out.
Neither Caf nor Fifa were convinced to bring you in. And by that I mean the people that voted either didn’t have confidence in you or you didn’t do enough to buy their votes.
You’ve been part of some of SA’s great football moments: the CEO when Bafana Bafana qualified for the 1998 FIFA World Cup for the first time, you were the president when Banyana Banyana qualified for the first time in 2012 Olympics and Women’s World Cup for the first time in 2019.
These are just the three examples and I’m using them because these are achievements that can never be repeated.
There is no other Bafana or Banyana that can re-achieve these milestones unless we go back in time, papa.
So I ask you again, what is it that you think you can still achieve?
You were the main ou when we bid to host the World Cup for the first time and lost to Germany in 2006, but you managed to keep our spirits alive to try again and we won the rights to host the 2010 World Cup.
That was a first for Africa and will forever be remembered the world over for the amazing atmosphere - no matter how much they say they hate vuvuzelas.
No other African country can ever claim that honour Bra Danny.
That was you, we all remember, respect and appreciate you for that grootman.
What I fail to understand is why you want to hold on to this Safa president position so badly?
I don’t see why you, with all you've achieved, would still want to deal with all the stress of being in a leadership position at Safa right now.
Safa is at a low at the moment and it has become clear that there is a push for renewed energy and a new direction.
I say this because there seems to be a clear campaign against your leadership. There’s a statement coming out of the Safa office every week responding to allegations.
And they won’t end anytime soon.
They are set to become even worse with the 10-year anniversary of the 2010 World Cup coming up.
I am willing to put up 1 000 Randelas that you will be asked about the Fifa Legacy funds in coming weeks.
And unfortunately for you, these will not only come from local news networks but the big overseas networks will be coming for you too, grootman.
Why do you want to be in the firing line of such bombs when you could be enjoying the fruits of your labour with family and friends?
It’s not like you won’t get invitations to attend football events like the World Cup in Qatar 2002.
You are Danny Alexander Jordaan, the former this and that of SA football, those invites will be flooding your inbox anyway.
Why do you want to spend what could be your last few good years under pressure to revive a dying horse like Safa and being criticised by everyone who has an opinion?
You are tarnishing your amazing legacy and image like this.
You were even a mayor of your hometown, the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality, grootman.
Nelson Mandela, grootman, you know what name means, grootman.
What else can you really achieve that hasn’t been achieved already in SA football, grootman?
Forget this third term Bra Danny, leave it to someone else.
Football is a game of the people, so please share the love.
There are enough people and brainpower in SA football to take what you’ve achieved forward to new heights.
