Mohammed Kudus, an Ajax and Ghanaian player, thinks he still has more to offer despite his stellar performance this year.
The 22-year-old, who also shone for the Black Stars at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, has been in spectacular form for both club and country.
When asked about his goals for the year, Kudus stated that he wants to help Ajax capture the league and cup double, claiming he hasn’t accomplished anything yet.
“The goal is to win the cup and the league and until I achieve that I haven’t done anything yet. So there is more coming. More work to be done,” he told Ajax TV
After finally overcoming injury and settling at Ajax, Kudus is presently experiencing his most fruitful period in front of goal.
The young playmaker has contributed 17 goals and four helpers across all competitions this season thanks to a strong run of form.
Despite the Black Stars’ elimination from the World Cup in the group stage, he still managed to score twice and provide one assist for Ghana.
The strike of the Month for February has been determined to be Kudus’ incredible free-kick strike against Sparta Rotterdam, which he celebrated by paying tribute to the late Christian Atsu.
The Ghanaian international scored a free kick in the 84th minute to cap a convincing 4-0 win for Ajax over Sparta Rotterdam last month.
Kudus celebrated by taking off his shirt and showing off the message “RIP Atsu” as a tribute to his former international colleague who sadly passed away in the earthquake in Turkey.
The referee was supposed to punish him for taking off his shirt, but match official Pol van Boekel gave Kudus a pass, as he understood that there was more to his gesture than football.
That stunning free-kick goal has now been adjudged as the goal of the month, with Kudus receiving his award on Tuesday
