Kudus Boost For Stars

Mohammed Kudus

It has emerged that Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus is set to join the Black Stars in Cameroon.

Reports have it that his European employers, Ajax, have given him the green light to join his compatriots.

Indications are that Ajax are happy to allow Kudus to travel to Cameroon for the ongoing 2021 African Cup of Nations having assessed the 21-year-old following his return from injury.

Initially, Ajax were reluctant to release Kudus to join the Stars as they claimed he was not fit to play in the difficult tournament fresh off an injury.

Kudus suffered a rib injury in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against South Africa last November.

He travelled for Ajax’s mid-season training in Portugal, where he seemed to have demonstrated he was ready to return to competitive action.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) had been in contact with Ajax after Milovan Rajevac decided not to give up on Kudus and added him to the 28-man final squad.

According to the reports, GFA have arranged a flight to bring Kudus to Yaoundé, where the Black Stars are currently based.

It is likely Kudus will feature in the crucial game against Gabon on Friday and later start against tournament debutants Comoros.
