The numbers speak volume of what Kudus Mohammed could become, if deployed as a lead man for Black Stars of Ghana.
Prior to scoring in the last four games, Kudus Mohammed was known to be comfortable playing behind a striker. He comes a central midfielder who controls games at an appreciable pace, and gets goals when the opportunity arises.
Recent decision by Ajax head coach to use him as a number nine has made deep and insightful revelations about what he could offer club and county with any given tweak.
Kudus Mohammed is credited with 5 goals in his last four outings across all competitions, that is Eredivisie and UEFA Champions League. These goals were scored by the Ghanaian at a time that he was fixed in an improvised position.
Of the 5 goals put at the back of the net, 3 goals are given to the league while 2 go for UEFA Champions League. UEFA Champions League goals came against Rangers (last week, match day 1) and Liverpool (tonight, match day 2), while league goals were scored against Cambuur(last two weekends) and Hareenveen(last weekend).
The manner in which he positions himself to put ball in the net gives credence to the fact that, Kudus Mohammed known for central midfield could hand goals to Otto Addo.
Upcoming international assignments against Brazil and Nicaragua could be a good test for Otto Addo to continue the assessment of Kudus Mohammed under the newly carved role. Presently, Kudus Mohammed has more goals than strikers named in the squad for the imminent international games. Inaki Williams, Felix Afena Gyan and Benjamin Tetteh cannot compete with Kudus Mohammed in terms of goals. Until these strikers get more goals than Kudus Mohammed, the youngster deserves to lead Ghana upfront.
