The Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) has received three letters from candidates interested in the vacant position on the Fifa council. The vacancy was created when Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned after being caught on camera accepting a $65 000 bribe. Cosafa CEO Sue Destombes told City Press her office had received three letters from interested candidates, but she could not divulge the names. On Friday, Safa president Danny Jordaan reportedly said: ‘I have been approached by a number of people from the continent and I have availed myself.’ Jordaan had several failed attempts at getting into the CAF executive and twice the Fifa executive committee during the reign of Cameroon strongman Issa Hayatou. Legalbrief reports that Jordaan is facing charged that he raped singer and former parliamentarian Jennifer Ferguson in the 1990s. He denies the allegations.
