Ghana’s coach, Chris Hughton, has conveyed his belief that Mohammed Kudus will require a period of adjustment as he transitions into his new environment following his transfer to West Ham United.
Kudus recently inked a five-year deal with the Premier League club, completing his move from the renowned Dutch powerhouse Ajax. During his three-year tenure at Ajax, he achieved notable success, including securing a domestic double in his debut season.
Given his close association with Kudus as the national team manager, Hughton offered his insights in an interview with The Athletic. He remarked, “I’ve known Mohammed for over a year and he’s a talented player.”
“He’s had a good upbringing and he’s developed over the last few years at Ajax. If you look at what they’ve done for young players, Kudus has now followed that path. He has versatility and is a player that is still developing.”
“He’s been at a top club in Ajax and now he’s joined another in West Ham. He will need time to adapt but this will be another part of his development and I hope he settles in well. I’m really delighted to see him in the Premier League.”
Kudus has already showcased remarkable form, contributing four goals and one assist in the current season. This further enhances his remarkable tally of 18 goals across various competitions during the preceding season with Ajax.
