The Australian has signed a one-year deal with the club and he is the fifth overseas signing of the club.
Murray shared his excitement about being a part of Jamshedpur FC for the forthcoming season of the ISL. The Australian is looking forward to giving his best for the team.
“I am very excited to be part of Jamshedpur FC. To stay in the ISL was a big part of my plan to develop as a player. We have a strong squad and along with them, I want to give my everything to win silverware here and help the club and the fans with the success they desire and deserve.”
The Aussie also spoke about the role which head coach Owen Coyle played in his move to Jamshedpur. “The Gaffer played a big part in the move. He was keen to get me on board, and obviously, the experience he has of coaching in the top leagues is something very few can boast about, and I am keen to learn from him,” he said.
Murray has the experience of playing in the ISL as he represented Kerala Blasters in the previous season and scored seven goals for them. The Australian started in 14 matches and made a total of 19 appearances for the Blasters.
Owen Coyle was all excited to get Murray on board and heaped praised on the 25-year old forward.
“Goals and more goals! With Jordan being part of our attack now, you can now see the quality of the Jamshedpur strikers whose intention is to score lots of goals. He is a great finisher and good with hold-up play as well to allow others to score too. Jordan is someone who keeps improving with each game and a great teammate to have. I am sure the Jamshedpur supporters will be smacking their lips to see such a fiery frontline this season.”
Jordan will wear jersey no.10 for Jamshedpur FC in the coming season.
