Former Nasarawa United winger Jordan Kadiri Attah has bagged two goals in seven games for Östersund in the Swedish Allsvenskan.
The 19-year-old has been phenomenal in the Scandinavian region, emerging as a reliable source of inspiration in the colors of Östersund.
Attah is an extremely fast player, which he uses to his advantage whenever he gets the ball in space. He is very accomplished at beating fullbacks with his pace.
He has routinely made opposing fullbacks look silly with his fast footwork on the edge of the box. He uses his pace and dribbling ability to cut inside and either unleash a vicious shot on goal or put in a dangerous cross.
As previously mentioned, Attah’s main attacking weapon is his pace. His speed on and off of the ball forces defenders to play off of him, allowing him more space to either make runs in front of the opposition or drop back and pull defenders out of position. This is a skill that Attah can only improve in too, and his already impressive pace, along with the offensive awareness that comes with experience, will surely make him a force to be reckoned with as he ages.
“I’m capable of doing my best. Here in Östersund, the trainer gives me everything a player needs (motivation,love etc).”
And he has started on a good footing. The talented forward is cast in the mould of Barcelona legend Lionel Messi and he expresses thrill about his form but underlines training as the secret of his success.
“I train a lot personally. I always want to better than I was yesterday. I always compete myself. But without God’s hands in it, nothing will work. I’m grateful to God.”
He says there are dangerous players around in the league but he’s got a key differentiator.
“Everyone wants to win. And everyone is dangerous too. But I’m just doing my job as a forward. Always working hard to improve in every single game.”
