In an exclusive interview with GhanaWeb, Ian, the West Ham supporter, shared that he successfully managed to travel from London to Ghana in time specifically to observe the recently acquired West Ham player, Mohammed Kudus, showcase his skills on the field.
“I am here to watch Mohammed Kudus, our new signing,” Ian said when asked which player he was coming to watch in the match.
“He is very skillful and strong. We love him,” the West Ham fan told GhanaWeb’s Joseph Adamafio at the Baba Yara Stadium.
He added, “West Ham are massive everywhere we go and I have come all the way from the UK to watch Mohammed Kudus and the Black Stars.”
Mohammed Kudus showcased his talents in Ghana’s match against the Central African Republic at Kumasi’s Baba Yara Stadium.
The devoted West Ham supporter’s journey paid off when Kudus, his favorite player, netted a crucial equalizer with a free-kick after the opponents had taken the lead.
Ghana triumphed 2-1, securing qualification as group leaders for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled to be held in Ivory Coast next year.
After his remarkable performances at the 2022 World Cup and a successful stint with Ajax Amsterdam, numerous European clubs expressed interest in Kudus. West Ham eventually secured his signature a few weeks ago.
Kudus made his debut for West Ham just before the international break, making a brief appearance in injury time during their 2-1 victory over Luton Town. Despite this brief stint, he had already amassed a passionate following in London.
Kudus is expected to return to West Ham the following week, where fans are eagerly awaiting his arrival to witness his exceptional skills. His presence is highly anticipated in an upcoming match against Manchester City at the London Stadium as the Premier League resumes.
