Danny Jordaan has been re-elected as the president of the South African Football Association (Safa).

For the third time, the 70-year-old will lead South Africa’s football regulatory body.

At the electoral congress over the weekend, Jordaan easily defeated rival candidates Ria Ledwaba and Solly Mohlabeng.

Jordaan will lead Safa for the third time in a row after receiving 186 votes to Ledwaba’s 27 and Mohlabeng’s eight.

Jordaan was initially voted Safa president in 2013 to succeed Kirsten Nematandani, and he was re-elected in 2017.

The senior football administrator was named Safa’s chief executive officer in 1997 before ascending to the helm of the local football governing body.
