LEARN­ING CURVE

Kick Off - - FEATURE -

At the time of writ­ing, Jordan was still de­cid­ing whether to ex­tend his stay at Sport­ing Lis­bon for an­other sea­son, but says de­spite a lack of game-time, his time there last sea­son was in­valu­able for him. “In to­tal I have played 60 min­utes for the un­der-19s in eight months, so it was a very slow start in my head. But in say­ing that, I learned things about foot­ball and about my­self that I wouldn’t get if I was playing ev­ery week. “I learned a new side of foot­ball and I am tak­ing it as a pos­i­tive. I am 100-per­cent a bet­ter player now than I was when I joined. They push you in train­ing, and you learn so much there. “I have grown tac­ti­cally and phys­i­cally. When I com­pare how I was be­fore I went to Por­tu­gal to now, there is no com­par­i­son.”
