“I am here to make sure that every box has been ticked, there is nothing outstanding, and everything is in place for them to focus on football, deliver on football and give us the kind of performances that will make the nation to take a deep breath and say, ‘We have a team’”, Jordaan told SAFA media.

“We have to get the team to focus. We have to clear everything. If they win, they get R7 million. If they lose, they get nothing. We want the team to focus and to perform. We have, over a period of time, settled this team, and we don’t want to waste time discussing unnecessary stuff.
