SA Football Association (Safa) president Dr Danny Jordaan said he was not surprised that veteran Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Issa Hayatou was finally removed from his seat after 29 years in power.

Jordaan, speaking on Soccer Africa with Sizwe Mabena on Thursday, said the changes in Council of Southern African Football Association (Cosafa) regional presidents, was a precursor to changes at CAF. He added that of the 14 Cosafa regional presidents, 11 were new and did not have the historical links to the ousted CAF president.

Jordaan also gave credit to Cosafa president Dr Phillip Chiyangwa, who was vocal in the campaign to get Hayatou ousted. He also credited Kwesi Appiah and Musa Billity for their role in bringing in change.

Jordaan also weighed into the debate about the increased World Cup team from 32 to 48 in 2026. The Safa boss believes Africa, as one of the biggest confederations, deserves no less than 10 World Cup places. Currently Africa, with a membership of 55, has on five World Cup slots compared to Europe with 16 slots also with a membership of 55 countries.
