Safa president proud of Sundowns Ladies


South African Football Association (Safa) Danny Jordaan is confident that Mamelodi Sundowns will go all the way to the final of the inaugural Caf Women’s Champions League after being crown champions of the Cosafa Champions League qualifiers.

Sundowns Ladies thrashed Zimbabwe’s Black Rhinos 3-0 in Durban on Saturday to book their place in the Champions League to be staged in Egypt, Cairo later this year.

The reigning South African Hollywoodbets Super League champions concluded the qualifiers without suffering a defeat and head to Egypt brimming with confidence to become the first African women club champions.

“I would like to congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies for once again hoisting the South African flag high during the Caf Women’s Champions League Cosafa region qualifiers. They made a statement of intent,’’ said Jordaan.

“Now they need to go all the way in the continental championships and become the first women club on the continent to be crowned African champions.

“They showed their potential during the Cosafa qualifiers and at this rate, only the sky can be the limit to what they can achieve,’’ he added.

The Tshwane giants won the first-ever Safa National Women’s League now known as Hollywoodbets Super League and are currently at the summit of the log standings with an unbeaten record.
