Despite having a brilliant end to the season with Manning Rangers, top striker Keryn Jordan is unlikely to turn out for the Durban club this season.
Jordan was on loan at Rangers from Moroka Swallows and during his short spell at the coastal club he helped to steer them away from relegation by finding the back of the net on a regular basis.
He also guided the club to the Absa Cup final, where ironically, they lost to the Birds, despite Jordan scoring a goal and also being named as both player of the tournament and top goal-scorer for the competition.
He even overtook Gilbert Mushangisike (71 goals) as the club's all-time leading goal-scorer. (He was also at the club
But the player said that he still belongs to the Birds and will be returning to Johannesburg within the next week to find out what the future holds for him at the club.
"I am going back to Swallows," Jordan confirmed to SASoccer365, "I will see how things go from there - I still have a year's contract with the team."
Jordan remained modest about the excellent form he showed with the Maulers, saying that "it could of gone either way, I was just lucky that things went my way."
He says that he enjoyed his time at the club, but warned that there are off-the-field issues that need to be sorted out if the club is to move forward in a positive direction.
"I don't want to make negative comments about Rangers, but everyone at the club knows that there are problems that need to be sorted out. Once this is done the club can go on to achieve what it is capable of," he said.
The 28-year-old was also full of praise for both the managers he played under at Rangers - Roy Baretto and Steve Komphela.
"Roy is an awesome coach - he is extremely hard-working and dedicated. Unfortunately sometimes when you try to hard things just don't come off the way you hoped for, which was the case with Baretto. However, I am sure he will still go on to achieve a lot in the game."
"Komphela of course was also great to play under. He was like a breath of fresh air at the club and the players responded well to him because he was able to make them feel less pressure.
