Kudus back in training at Ajax


Attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus has returned to full training for Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax Amsterdam after two months out of action.

The 20-year-old had started life well in the Netherlands before sustaining a knee injury that took him out of action since October.

The youngster fell hard after a collision with Liverpool’s Fabihno during a UEFA Champions League game between the two sides in match day one of the group phase of the competition.

The former FC Nordsjaelland attacker was replaced by Dutch international Quincy Promes just six minutes into the match.

After a convincing 4-0 win against PEC Zwolle last weekend Ajax Amsterdam coach Erik ten Hag confirmed that the Ghanaian international would be back in full training this week.

“Kudus is in his final phase of his rehabilitation. There is a chance that he will come into action quickly,” he explained.

“I hope that some of those players who are out due to injury will be able to play against FC Utrecht on Wednesday.”

The giants have since confirmed via their social media accounts that their new signing is back in full training and ready to get going again.

Kudus joined Ajax on a five-year deal in July 2020 after a few years of impressive displays in the Danish Superliga for FC Nordsjaelland, and a fine start to his senior international career with the Ghana national team.

Last season, he made 25 league appearances for Nordsjaelland, contributing 11 goals in all competitions for the side.

The Champions League encounter against Liverpool was just his fourth competitive outing for new side Ajax, for whom he has registered three assists and scored his only goal in a 5-1 Eredivisie triumph over Heerenveen in October.

This was also his first ever UEFA Champions League appearance. It was a sad moment for both the player and the fans as he was starting to hit top gear at the club.
