SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan has wished Daniel Akpeyi and his Kaizer Chiefs teammates all the best in Saturday’s CAF Champions League final against Egyptian giants Al Ahly at Stade Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca, Morocco.

Akpeyi was in superb form as he helped Kaizer Chiefs eliminate Wydad AC, in the semi-final reverse fixture and qualify for their first-ever Champions League final.

They will become the third South African club to win the continent’s biggest club competition, after Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, if they beat Al Ahly.

‘’This match is historical for Kaizer Chiefs and it would be tremendous for Amakhosi to win this Edition,” Jordaan was quoted on SAFA website.

“There has been so much happening in the country, depressing developments and winning the Champions Trophy would give South Africans some really much needed good news.”

He also said the star would be a well-deserved reward for Chiefs chairman, Kaizer Motaung.

‘’Kaizer has done tremendous work for South African football and winning the CAF Champions League title will be befitting reward for the hard work he has dedicated to the game. He is an icon of South African football and I am wishing him all the best,’’ added Dr Jordaan.

The SAFA President said he would really want Chiefs to win this title but also alluded that if they fail to do so, South Africa would still have won somewhere somehow. 

The defending champions are coached by South African duo of Pitso Mosimane and Cavin Johnson, meaning on either side, the South African flag will be hoisted sky high.

‘’To the technical team (of Kaizer Chiefs), support staff and players, I want to wish you all the best in Morocco. You have come this far, so go there and enjoy yourself. Make the country proud. South Africa seriously need some positive lift.

‘’Believe in yourself and play for the club’s badge, your country, family and for your careers. In Kaizer Chiefs we believe,’’ he concluded.
