ANC Youth League congratulates new Safa boss

The ANC Youth League on Thursday congratulated Leslie Sedibe on his appointment as chief executive officer of the South African Football Association, calling him a suitable and capable incumbent for the job.

“The ANCYL also congratulates Safa leadership for showing the necessary decisiveness in appointing an energetic, capable and suitably qualified young person to be at the helm of South African football,” spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said in a statement.

Sedibe would significantly contribute to South Africa’s hosting a “successful and jovial” Soccer World Cup.

Sedibe was named new Safa chief executive on Thursday morning after Raymond Hack was fired — five months before the start of the World Cup and six months before his contract was set to expire.

The Sowetan reported that Sedibe would be acting chief executive, with Danny Jordaan, head of the 2010 local organising committee (LOC), set to return early next year to the post he held between 1997 and 2001.

“Safa’s appointment of Leslie Sedibe will go a long way in giving confidence and inspiration to many other young South Africans.”

Sedibe was previously head of legal affairs for the 2010 LOC. – Sapa
