In this week’s UNMARKED episode, the crew are joined by ex-Bournemouth & Liverpool winger, Jordon Ibe. Recorded back in July, the show kicks off with the ‘What Made You Smile’ segment (1:34) and then Jordon weighs in on the ever-important Ghana vs Nigeria jollof rice debate (8:22) with a little bias, some might say. The 24-year old midfielder talks about growing up in South London (11:16), playing professional football at 15 whilst still in school (18:23) and adjusting to life in Liverpool after his transfer (22:31). Jordon discusses the balance of fatherhood and football (29:07) which keeps him grounded and the importance of self-confidence (34:04), which is something he admitted he struggled with. A free agent at the time of recording, speaks about the search for his next club (47:32). The episode ends on a funny note, when Jordon realises he knows Kieran’s younger brother (55:56), they were former team-mates at Wycombe! A revealing and insightful interview with a young footballer who has grown up in the limelight.
