Auckland City legend Keryn Jordan coming home

Auckland City legend Keryn Jordan coming home

Posted: 15 January 2013 Time: 12:28 pm

Keryn Jordan will return to South Africa this weekend, after a successful career in New Zealand at Auckland City, where he is described as a ‘club legend’.

Jordan began his career in South Africa, playing for Supersport United, Manning Rangers and Moroka Swallows, before moving to New Zealand to join Waitakere United, and then Auckland City.

The 37-year-old, who was capped twice for Bafana Bafana in 2000, appeared at two Fifa Club World Cups for the Auckland club, and won three ASB Premiership medals as well as two Oceania club titles.

He scored 76 goals in 100 games in his New Zealand career.

In 2008 Jordan revealed that he had been battling with cancer for three years, although he continued to play, only retiring in 2010, citing recurring knee injuries and ongoing cancer treatment.

“Keryn will be remembered as one of the greatest Auckland City FC players of all time,” Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx tells the club’s official website.

“He has left an indelible mark on our club, on the game of football in not only New Zealand, but throughout Oceania, and from the team at Auckland City FC we wish him all the best in his new life back home.”

Jordan, along with friends and family, has set up the "Liam Jordan Support Fund" for his son, who is fast developing into a top quality footballer in his own right.

Details for contributions to the Liam Jordan Support Fund are listed below.

Although it is good gesture to put the fund for Keryn's son, there are millions of disadvantaged kids who will also die to be assisted in furthering their aspiring football careers. Some of these kids are orphans, found normally playing on dusty grounds in teh townships with oversized football gear, different pairs of socks etc, Just saying.

With due respect Jordaan, we also pay for our own children, some of whom are more disadvantaged that your son Liam. If yo are broke you can register for a disability grant back in Mzanzi

Gordon is up to something; he wants to appoint him as "Goal Scoring Consultant" to Bafana. Shaun Dundee and Jordan are Gordon's chomies and will be appointed to the technical team after the AFCON..."to consolidate our preparations for 2014 in Brazil"
