Johannesburg - Following news that Leslie Sedibe looks set to continue as SAFA CEO, Danny Jordaan has revealed that he does not want his old job back.

Jordaan is still technically contracted as SAFA's CEO, but the 58-year-old is prepared to allow someone else, being Sedibe, to fill the position.

However, he does not want to leave the organisation altogether and is keen to continue his working relationship with South African football's governing body.

"I am a founding member of SAFA and I have held just about every position within the organisation from acting president to CEO," Jordaan told Business Day.

"I am effectively the last man standing and I do not think that I should go back to my old job.

"I still have a contract (as CEO) but I think that it is now time to develop a new generation of leaders.

"Of course, this is something that I still have to discuss with SAFA because I do not believe that I need a position to make a contribution."
