The head of the 2010 World Cup Organising Committee has expressed his concerns about Western media coverage of preparations for next year’s finals.
According to a report by The Patriotic Vanguard, a “Sierra Leone News Portal”, Dr. Danny Jordaan told a reception for visiting African journalists to “report objectively about the infrastructure, security and other things connected to the 2010 World Cup.”
Jordaan also reportedly “disclosed that the organising committee of the 2010 World Cup was not happy about the way western media were reporting about South Africa hosting the tournament.”
The journalists were visiting the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium at Port Elizabeth in South Africa.
