Ajax Amsterdam legend Theo Janssen has criticized coach Alfred Schreuder for not starting Mohammed Kudus in his 2022/23 Eredivisie games.
The Ghanaian midfielder has been a substitute in the Dutch giants’ matches so far in the top-flight league and a reported move to English side Everton or Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Schreuder’s first three fixtures have seen Kudus play 38 minutes and that even includes additional time.
Against Fortuna Sittard, the Ajax number 20 only played in the five extra minutes added by the match referee.
Janssen, speaking to VTBL in an interview asserts that Kudus needs more playing time because he is the best number 10 in the squad.
“They have to find a place because the important players have to keep playing.
“I think Kudus is a much better player than Tadic in the long run at the No 10 position. I would already be playing Kudus by now.
“Against PSV and in the Champions League, you can’t be playing Tadic at No 10. I’m convinced of that.”
Belgium giants Club Brugge and German side Borussia Monchengladbach are all interested in Mohammed Kudus.
