According to Ghana’s Mohammed Kudus, West Ham executed the coach’s game plan to perfection in their remarkable comeback victory against Backa Topola in the UEFA Europa League.
Kudus played a crucial role, contributing to both the equalizing own goal and scoring the winning goal. Tomas Soucek added a third goal at London Stadium on Thursday night.
At 23 years old, Kudus provided valuable insights into the team’s strategic approach. He praised the squad’s determination and underscored their commitment to following the coach’s instructions, which ultimately led to their impressive comeback.
“We wanted the goals in the first half so that we can control the game but we didn’t have any,” Kudus said.
“We went down but the winning mentality from the guys was good. We kept doing what the coach taught us and the results came afterward.”
This marks Mohammed Kudus’ third appearance for West Ham United and his first start, following substitute appearances in the Premier League.
