This comes after Jordaan stated that Safa had not made provisions to remunerate the national Under-17 women’s team for qualifying for the World Cup.
“When these girls started the World Cup qualifiers, they didn’t ask about money. They were not doing it for money. Now you are putting ideas in their minds,” Jordaan told reporters.
“If you are talking about money, FIFA doesn’t allow us to give them money. But we can do something for their schools”
The Safa president’s comments seem to have angered South Africans who were proud of the team’s achievement.
The fact that they didn’t ask for money doesn’t mean they didn’t need any. They’re smart enough to realize that SAFA was going to tell them there wasn’t any. Instead of wasting energy on negative stuff they embraced the challenge. Bravo girls
