Lionel Messi and Diego MaradonaSouth Africa Football Association (Safa) president, Dr. Danny Jordaan has come out to say that a piece of football has died after Maradona passed on.

He recently revealed that Maradona was a football man who always put a human face on football.

According to him, Maradona was a supporter of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa and the entire African continent, and he would be remembered for always being accessible to football supporters and the youths.

He added that the deceased was clearly one of the greatest footballers ever to walk the earth and he would be missed.

His words, “Maradona was a football man. He put a human face on football. He was always accessible to football supporters and to the youth.”

“He would immediately take the ball, juggle with it and pose for pictures. Maradona was a supporter of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa and the entire African continent. At one stage, he told me he was worried as Argentina almost failed to qualify for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. That qualification helped him to live his dream – to be the coach of his country in an African World Cup.”

“The staff behind the delivery of the event took pictures with Maradona at the headquarters of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. He then went to FNB Stadium to meet former South African footballers and that was a rewarding experience for both parties,”

“So with Maradona’s death, a piece of football has died, the human face of football. He is clearly one of the greatest footballers ever to walk the earth. We will miss him, all those who worked in the 2010 Fifa World Cup, football will miss him.”
