‘It was my first major injury’ – Ajax star Kudus opens up on knee setback against Liverpool
Ajax midfielder Kudus Mohammed has explained how the injury against Liverpool in last season’s UEFA Champions League group stage affected him.
The Black Stars player clashed with Liverpool’s midfielder Fabinho and hobbled off when Ajax faced Liverpool in the early stages of the game.
Speaking to 3Sports, Kudus said the injury was his first major injury in football and helped him to concentrate on the other aspects of his life.
“That was the first major injury I had in football, and also that was the first time I had to stay out of football for a long time.
“Normally when you play week in week out, you don’t really get time for the other aspects of your life, you know you just focus on football,” he said.
He stressed how disappointed he was but was happy he made a much quicker return to feature for his team even before the end of the season.
“I was very disappointed but I’m strong religiously and I really believe in God. So everything that happened, I gave thanks to him because I believe it could have been worse,” the former Nordsjaelland star stated.
Kudus Mohammed won double in his debut season after helping Ajax to win the domestic league title and the cup.
