Argentinean-born Albor Jordan arrived in Algeria as a youngster, and began his football career there. His first club would be Mouloudia Club of Alger, and he started his playing days as a defender. He soon found himself developing as a true striker, being a good dribbler, and clinical in front of goal. He was the first ever Argentinean player to play for Mouloudia, and he had a successful stay at the club over several seasons. Between 1942 and 1944, he played for Gallia Sports in Alger, before moving away to Morocco, where he would sign for RA Casablanca. In 1945, he migrated to France, signing for Stade Rennais. He would score a goal on his debut in a Red and Black shirt, on the opening day of the league season in a 2-0 victory over Rouen. He would be used sparingly thereafter, however, with fierce competition from Chipponi - initially - and then from SImonyi in his second season at the club. He would make a total of 16 appearances for Rennes, scoring seven goals in his two campaigns with Stade Rennais University Club. He left Rennes in 1947 to see out his final years as player with Le Mans.
