Former Mamelodi Sundowns owner Natasha Tsichlas say the credit for the creation of CAF Women’s Champions League should also go to SAFA President Danny Jordaan.
The continent’s football governing announced last Thursday that the maiden edition will be played in 2021.
Tsichlas says Jordaan, who is also CAF’s third vice-president, is the brainchild of this laudable competition.
”Our President (Dr Jordaan)’s love for the growth of women’s game is well documented and we must credit him a lot for this development. He played a pivotal role in the creation of this CAF women’s champions league,” added Tsichlas.
The game within women can only grow from strength to strength going forward on the continent. Tsichlas is confident that, soon, Africa will compete with the best in the world.
”When you look back to where women football was 20 years ago and where it is now, you can see that Africa has really made huge strides and South Africa in particular must continue to play a major role.”
