Ajax star Mohammed Kudus sustains injury six minutes into UEFA Champions League debut

Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus has been dealt a huge blow after picking an injury during his UEFA Champions League debut for Ajax against Liverpool on Wednesday night.

Kudus has been impressive for the Dutch giants since he joined from FC Nordsjaelland this summer.

The budding midfielder has already bagged two Man-of-the-Match gongs from his first three matches for the club in the ongoing Dutch Eredivisie.

The Ghana international was hoping to convey  his swashbuckling form to Europe after he was named in coach Erik Ten Hag’s starting line up against Liverpool at the Johan Cruyff Stadion on Wednesday.

However, the midfielder lasted just six minute in the encounter due to injury.

Kudus and Brazilian midfielder Fabinho had a knee to knee collision and the Ghanaian came off worse.

He was replaced with Dutch international Quincy Promes.

Ajax are yet to determine the extent of the injury but the capital-based side will hope it’s not severe.
