Dundee United Manager Jack Ross, insists Ghanaian youngster Mathew Amim Cudjoe has a big future at Dundee United – despite being linked with a Premier League switch.
The Ghanaian teenager only signed for the Tangerines last season and despite playing just handful of games, it’s been reported that Brighton have him on their radar.
Ross didn’t know much about the 18-year-old attacker before he arrived at Tannadice in the summer but has been impressed with the early impression he has made during pre-season.
“Matthew has had a really strong pre-season, he’s taken his chances when they came along. He has done really well in the games he’s played since I came in.
“Matthew has the ability to eliminate people, he takes people on and wants to score goals so I have been delighted with him.
“All you can do as an 18-year-old is take your opportunity when it comes along and he’s done that. He’s with us, he trained this morning with us and is embracing the opportunity he’s had with us. So I don’t know where it came from because he’s very much part of our squad.”
Cudjoe, himself, has already set himself big goals and confirmed last season he would love to eventually help Ghana to be African champions and to play in the Champions League. United boss Ross said: “Matthew is a young player who has impressed us. I knew a bit about him before coming here through my knowledge of players and also speaking to Liam Fox.
Anim-Cudjoe joined Dundee United last season, making a handful of appearances for the Tangerines.
