SA Teen Cleared To Play In Portugal
South African teenager, Liam Jordan, can now start working his way towards his Sporting Clube de Portugal debut after sorting out his paperwork.
The 18-year-old completed a move from Bidvest Wits to Lisbon at the start of last month, and while he has been able to train with the reserve team, he has not been able to feature due to some missing documents given the fact that he is a foreigner.
Now, however, the Siya crew has been informed that all is finally in order, and he can now start playing for the club that helped develop the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Co.
Jordan, who was in fine form for South Africa’s U20s before his move, is expected to turn out for Sporting’s reserve side – who play in Portugal’s Segunda Liga – in the near future, and will also be afforded the opportunity to train with their first team.
Sporting CP II take on Cova Piedade next week, and Jordan will be eager to show them what he can do on the field.
