Mohammed Kudus, a midfielder for Ghana, has spoken out about his failed summer transfer attempt to join Everton of the English Premier League.
After a challenging start to the Eredivisie season, Ajax rejected a signing offer from the Premier League club this summer.
After making his team, the former FC Nordsjaelland player has been in excellent form, scoring six goals in five games.
In Sunday’s 2-1 Eredivisie loss to AZ Alkmaar, Kudus scored for the fifth game in a row, tying a new career high.
Kudus told NOS, “Everton provided me a tremendous opportunity and I decided to try it.
“Neither I nor any football player wants to stand on the sidelines. Everton felt like a solid alternative at the time, despite the fact that I recognized not everyone could play all the time.
He was selected for Ghana’s team to play in an international friendly against Brazil and Nicaragua the following week as the Black Stars get ready for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
