Ghanaian footballer playing in the Netherlands for Ajax FC , Mohammed Kudus has revealed one of the biggest awards he believes he will win before the end of his football career.
Kudus thinks it is only a matter of time before he is named African Footballer of the Year.
The Attacking Midfielder is currently injured and didn’t play last week, but the current 2022/23 campaign has been his best season yet. Appearing on the latest episode of Ask the Pro on Ajax TV, the 22-year-old was asked about the possibility of winning the Best African Player award in the future.
A confident Kudus replied that anything is possible: “ I believe everything is possible in this world so definitely yeah, I will be chosen one day [as African Footballer of the Year.” The last Ghanaian footballer to be voted CAF African Footballer of the Year was Abedi Ayew Pele – who won the award three times in a row.
Kudus was recently named to the Forbes Africa 2023 30 Under 30 list for his impact on and off the pitch. The Ajax Amsterdam playmaker is one of only two Ghanaians on this year’s list, the other being creative director and videographer Emmanuel Whajah.
This season, Mohammed Kudus has so far scored 18 goals and five assists in all competitions for Ajax Amsterdam. He also scored twice and provided an assist for the Ghanaian side at the Qatar 2022 World Cup despite the Black Stars being knocked out in the group stage.
