Soccer Laduma reported on the letter of support Nyathi sent, as he backed Jordaan.
Nyathi's letter stated: “Dear Mr President, I fully understand what’s going on and do sympathize with you. However, these people are on a mission and it seems that they won’t stop until they achieve their goal.
“Unfortunately, their goals are destabilising – they will set our football backwards and we will hardly recover."
Briefly.co.za also gathered that Nyathi, who is a member of the SAFA Technical Committee, admires the association's leadership and the direction it is taking.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Jordaan has vowed to deal with Bafana Bafana star Bongani Zungu.
