Mohammed Kudus wanted to make the switch to Everton last summer, because he saw it as a good project for him. That says the Ajax player, who is currently playing with Ghana World Cup is active, talking to The Guardian. In addition, Kudus talks about his new position in the striker and the meeting with Neymar.
The English medium asks the Ajax player whether the past few months have been the best months of his career. “If you look at the goals and assists and stuff, probably. But if you think about other things, not really.’ At Ajax, Kudus has played as a striker in the past period, while he is not actually a striker. “That’s the point,” the Ghanaian begins. “I’m playing, I’m scoring and I’m helping my team and it’s great. But I’m happiest when I’m creating things for the team.’
At the start of this season, Kudus refused to train to force a move to Everton. The Ajax player says that it was a simple matter for him. “The only way you can develop is to make minutes on the pitch. If I’m in a phase and I feel that I’m not developing at that moment, then I have to try somewhere else.’
“What makes Neymar better for now is that he has achieved a lot, but I will get there soon”
Yet Ajax held its ground and therefore Kudus was not allowed to leave for England. “I thought Everton was a good project for me and why not?”, the Ajax player begins about his failed transfer. ‘It’s not that this is my first season at Ajax, it’s my third. So if I don’t see the progress I’m looking for, why don’t I try something else?’
With Ghana, Kudus played a friendly against Brazil in September. At the time, the Ajax player had good duels with Neymar, something true The Guardian curious about. ‘He’s no better than me. He just has more fame, that’s all. He defended his country and I defended mine. I wasn’t going to let him push me. What makes him better for now is that he’s accomplished a lot, but I’ll get there soon.’
Kudus responded to the article via Twitter later in the evening The Guardian:
