Talented Ghanaian attacking midfielder – Kudus Mohammed has stated his readiness for the battle ahead after completing his much publicized transfer from FC Nordsjælland to Ajax Amsterdam.

Having signed for the Dutch giant on July 16, 2020 for a fee believed to be around €9 million, the Nima [Accra] born soccer prodigy expressed his delight, but reckons the challenges that comes with it all the same:

“Elated to join Ajax & braced for the future cos it’s a special place with a new culture & challenges,” he tweeted.

Kudus [19] further explained why he settled on the No. 20 jersey instead of No. 34:

“I considered #34 but I dedicate my signing to @Abdelhak_Nouri, a bro in faith to keep his dreams alive.”

The Moroccan player [Abdelhak Nouri] collapsed while playing for Ajax Amsterdam in a friendly game against Werder Bremen in July, 2017. Nouri came back to life after 32 months in coma.

Kudus did not forget his root as he dedicated the occasion to his former clubs – Right to Dream Academy and FC Nordsjælland for developing him to this level.

“I owe this to all the staff & team mates at FCN & RtD,” he adds.

Kudus Mohammed, together with Ibrahim Sadiq and Eric Ayiah formed the attacking triumvirate of the Black Starlets team that represented Ghana at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup tournament in India.

The attacking middie got his official debut for FC Nordsjælland on August 05, 2018 in a 0-2 defeat against Brøndby IF.

November 14, 2019, will however, remain as one of the special moments in the career of Kudus Mohammed, having come off the bench to score on his Black Stars debut in an AFCON 2021 qualifying match against South Africa at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
