SA Fans Roast Jordaan Appointment…
Danny Jordaan has been re-elected as SAFA President for a third term, to the complete dismay to Bafana Bafana fans around the country. Jordaan will serve a third term as Safa president, beating Ria Ledwaba and Solly Mohlabeng to the position which he has held since 2013. It's understood that Jordaan has won by a landslide victory, with members of the association backing him to lead South African football for another four years. Jordaan took over in 2013, and many fans have agreed with one another in saying that he hasn’t changed anything for Bafana and question what he has planned for the next 4 years. ‘Jordaan is spiraling South African Football into ICU’ claims one angered fan on the Fan Reaction Show.

Khosi Nation: We Need This Reshuffle!
Kaizer Chiefs haven’t had the greatest few seasons, there have been coaches who have come and gone, attitudes haven’t been the best and there hasn’t been a structured plan moving forward. Khosi nation became frustrated and agitated with their team. As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait because the rebuilding process at Naturena is well underway! It all started with Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard being offered permanent positions and then the mass exodus followed. Chiefs believed in releasing a plethora of players to bring some new faces and new, young talent.
The mass exodus (so far) saw chiefs get rid of a whopping eleven players and the reasons behind this were discussed on the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show. Mzansi discusses the exodus of Orlando Pirates, AmaZulu, and Kaizer Chiefs. “This is long overdue,” says one Chiefs fan.
