Jordan Ferri is a new Lyon.
Out of Tola Vologe, the Olympic of Lyon’s Youth academy, Jordan Ferri is emerging late this season as a very good young player. Karim Benzema, Sidney Govou and Ludovic Giuly were all great talents in Tola Vologe which emerged into successful international players. Jordan Ferri is not yet on his path for Les Bleus, but he is advancing his case to become a starter next season in Lyon starting XI.
Ferri just turn 22 in March, so he is a very young talent. He should be given time to perform in a star lacking Lyon. His emergence is great for Lyon because it allows them to enjoy three young efficient players Maxime Gonalons, Clement Grenier and now Jordan Ferri. Last week against the mighty Paris Saint-Germain, the leader of the French League, Jordan Ferri scored the 1-0 winner on an inspired long distant shot giving three points to Lyon.
The prospect of his development provides great hope to the team and city of Lyon. Whether or not he processes the work ethic and the ability to become as good as Maxime Gonalons and Clement Grenier remains to be seen, but so far hope is on the new Lyon’s side.
