Midfielder Mohammed Kudus boldly confronts Ajax coach over playing time

Written by ...





Ghana ace Mohammed Kudus has met Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder to discuss his limited game time this season in the Dutch Eredivisie.

The 22-year-old has not started any game this season, coming off the bench in all three games in the Dutch topflight this season.

His role from the bench has left the former FC Nordsjaelland player frustrated and there are reports Everton could sign him on loan before the window shuts.

Mohammed Kudus met with Alfred Schreuder three times last week to ask questions about his bench role.

 “Of course I see that he is disappointed now and then. That is also good and normal. It is about whether you can control that emotion for the team. He handles that well,” he added.

The 22-year-old came on as a second half substitute in the 1-0 victory on the road, playing the final twenty minutes.

Mohammed Kudus has an outstanding pre-season, scoring three goals in three games before netting the Dutch Super Cup game against PSV.

Despite his rich run of form, the Black Stars ace only makes the bench at Ajax.

“We spoke with him 3 times, because he also thinks he should play,” said Schreuder to Voetbal International after the game between Ajax and Sparta.
