Mora said this in a press conference held at JDT headquarters here Monday (Feb 17).

Meanwhile, Davies said it was a dream come true for him to be playing in a football club such as JDT.

“As footballers, we want to surround ourselves with best footballers around and JDT have that with some of their players I know well from playing in the national team, ” he added.
