“It was his first time abroad. He has grown in quality as a personality and as a player. Of course, as a coach, you would like to get such a player back, also because he’s a homegrown player. But if such a financial deal is in the background, it’s of a magnitude that makes all parties happy. That was an offer we couldn’t refuse.”

We would like to thank Jordan for the time we spent together and wish him every success for the future.”
