Today for the 1st edition of football portraits on My Football Lounge, I am pointing out Danny Jordaan’s work as Chief Executive Officer of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. Danny Jordaan is the most important man in football at the moment. He fought to bring the World Cup to Africa and is now in charge of the success of the most important sporting event worldwide.
Jordaan 58 years old, is a former teacher and a member of the Steve Biko’s anti-apartheid South African Students’ Organisation in the 60′s. In 1997 he became head of SAFA (South Africa Football Association) in order to be fully dedicated on the 2006 and 2010 World Cup bids.
