English Premier League side Liverpool FC legend John Barnes is asking Ghana’s starman Kudus Mohammed to stay at Dutch Eredivisie giant AFC Ajax Amsterdam.
Despite interest from big clubs across Europe in the footballer, the former English international wants the Ghanaian star midfielder to stay at his current club for an other season’s before a big money move.
The former Reds player says the Black Stars star boy will need another season at his current club to mature enough before making a big money move away from the Dutch giant.
According to him, move-in to a big club comes with pressure so one must mature enough to be able to withstand the pressure that comes with the big money moved.
“I have a belief that players must spend more years at a particular club to be consistent before they consider a big move,” Barnes to Graphic Sports.
“This is because most players face pressure from clubs and supporters whenever they make bigger moves, and you will need consistency to deal with such.
“Unfortunately, the only motivation of footballers now is to make enough money, so I won’t blame Kudus for taking such a decision.”
The 22-year-old playmaker bagged 18 goals and notched six assists in 41 appearances across all competitions for Ajax this term.
The former FC Nordsjaelland star was Ghana’s star man at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar when he scored twice and assisted another in three group stage games.
