On 16 July 2020 Kudus Mohammed signed for Eredivisie club Ajax for €9 million, on a five-year contract moving from Nordsjaelland of Norway.
The former Right to Dream academy player made his official debut for the club on 20 September in a league match against RKC Waalwijk after which head coach Erik ten Hag subsequently called Kudus as a player with “incredible potential” but how has the Ghanaian midfield sensation performed at the Dutch giants?
The 20-year old is one of the player selected by Black Stars coach C.K Akonnor to contest the 2021 AFCON qualification games against South Africa and Sao Tome et Principe.
Injuries have hampered hos smooth progress at the Dutch club as he has appeared in just 13 games this season across all competitions scoring two goals and making three assists. Ajax has played 39 games in all events this season so far meaning Kudus has been involved in 33.3 % of his team’s games this term as he missed several games due to injury.
Kudus has played 519 minutes in total in the 13 games that he has taken to the field to play for Ajax. The talented midfielder was a second half substitute for Ajax on Thursday night during a Europa league game against Young Boys – a game Ajax won 2-1 to secure their qualification to the quater-finals of the competition.
It has not really been an ideal debut season for Kudus at Ajax but the player can hope for better things to come in the coming seasons ahead.
