Having left Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon in 2018 to join Danish second tier side HB Koge permanently after an initial loan deal, striker Liam Jordan has spent two seasons with HB Koge where he has made some strides into regular first team football.
The Durban-born forward has been one of the key players for Koge in the past two seasons scoring 11 goals while assisting a further 12 in the Danish second tier.
The SA U23 international has a goal contribution of 23 goals overall in the two seasons with the club.
Those numbers could have been better had the season not been halted by the current Covid19 crisis. It’s always good for young players to make the right career moves at the right time in their development to ensure efficiency and readiness for every level in their development.
DID YOU KNOW?
Liam is the son of the late Keryn Jordan, who was PSL top scorer in the 1997/98 season while at the now-defunct Manning Rangers.
Jordan junior, meanwhile, is turning 22 this year but has been playing regular first team football for some time in Denmark.
He’s also been at a youth World Cup with South Africa and is currently playing for the national team at U23 level… the striker has gone through the right steps so far.
With his statistics and consistent performances, the attacker should be ready for the next step in his career which is playing top tier football.
Jordan will have a year left on his contract after the current season ends, but it remains to be seen if the club will sell the player this coming transfer window or he would sign a pre-contracf next year with a club of his choice.
