Indian Super League franchise Kerala Blasters have announced the signing of Australian striker Jordan Murray ahead of the 2020/21 season.
25 year old Wollongong-born Jordan Murray played locally for Bulli FC before joining semi-professional side South Coast Wolves, where he also made his senior debut.
Jordan Murray then moved to APIA Leichhardt (2016-18) before spending the last couple of seasons with Australian A-League side Central Coast Mariners before now making the move to India.
Jordan Murray said, “I’m extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in India. I would like to thank Coach Kibu, Karolis and the Blasters Management for their faith in me. I’m really looking forward to meeting my new teammates and I’m excited by the challenge that lies ahead. I would also like to thank all the Blasters fans for their lovely messages of support even before my official announcement, making me feel so welcome and loved. See you all soon!”
Kerala Blasters sporting director Karolis Skinkys said, “Jordan is a very exciting player who has loads of energy. He has great attributes in attack, does a lot of running by pressing from the front and tracking back to help the defence. I’m also very appreciative of the attitude he shows towards the game and am very excited to see him in our team.”
