Johannesburg - Danny Jordaan has been elected as the new South African Football Association (SAFA) president at the organisation's elective congress at Helderfontein Estate in Midrand on Saturday.

Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana, Lucas Nhlapo and Elvis Shishana were elected as the three vice-presidents from the five nominated.

"All the executive members are elected, so all those people are not in football by chance.

"Let's look at education -- you have 2000 kids in the classroom and the teacher has the lowest qualification, then you expect the students to be the best.

"Germany is playing 80 000 junior matches over a weekend.

"Spain is playing 30 000.

"If you find 3000 matches in South Africa you're doing well.

Mazibuko was then nominated to oppose Jordaan but the president of the SA Schools Football Association was unable to garner enough support for the top position in SAFA.
