Mohammed Kudus has been honored by Western Regional Minister Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah for his contribution to the Black Stars at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
On behalf of the Ghana Gold Expo, the Minister, who is also a Member of Parliament for Takoradi, presented the playmaker with a Commemorative Gold Coin Medal.
Kudus was a standout for Ghana during the World Cup, scoring against both Portugal and South Korea.
He assisted in Ghana’s 3-2 loss to Portugal in their first group game and scored twice in their win over South Korea.
The Ajax midfielder, widely regarded as one of the tournament’s promising stars, has now been honored by the Western Regional Minister.
Kudus went to the event with close friends Kamaldeen Sulemana and Ernest Nuamah.
Meanwhile, international teammate Kudus, according to Inaki Williams, will soon join a major club such as Real Madrid or Barcelona.
The Athletic Bilbao forward is of the view that the 22-year-old is beginning to outgrow his current club Ajax Amsterdam.
I think Ajax is starting to get too small for him and hopefully he will make the leap to a big club soon,” Williams told Radio Marca.
“I would have liked him to have had a Basque family member to be able to bring him to Bilbao because he is a bomb, he is a machine. He is very complete and with his young age, he still has a lot of room for improvement.”
In response to a question about whether he sees Kudus playing for Barcelona or Real Madrid in the near future, he said, “Yes. I see him in a large club. He has a lot of potential and a lot of room for growth; his ceiling has yet to be reached. I believe he will soon be a revelation.”
Kudus has been linked with several European clubs, including Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea.
