I know he has a good mentality and I am sure he will come back stronger. I have no doubts about this.“He is keeping positive. He has his spirits high. I knew him before he came to Villa. Where he comes from in France, they are strong people. He is too.“He’s a fine player. He has the potential to be one of the best left-backs in the world. He has a big future. I have no doubt he will come back stronger. I am not worried about Jordan – not one bit.”last_img read more
