Black Stars should be built around Mohammed Kudus – Asamoah Gyan

Former Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan, asserts that the national team, the Black Stars, should be centered around Mohammed Kudus, the talented midfielder from West Ham United.

Gyan, who holds the record as Ghana’s highest goal scorer and is revered as one of the nation’s greatest footballers, showered praise on the young sensation, Mohammed Kudus, labelling him as the premier Ghanaian player of the current generation.

Speaking on Asempa FM, Gyan emphasized Kudus’ stellar performances for both club and country, indicating that the 23-year-old has assumed the mantle from previous luminaries like Gyan himself, Michael Essien, and Abedi Pele.

“In my view, it’s evident that Mohammed Kudus is the one. During my time, we had the likes of Michael Essien, Stephen Appiah, and Sulley Muntari, and eventually, it was my era.

“We’ve seen different generations come and go, from Abedi Pele’s era to Michael Essien’s, then mine, and now, it seems to be Kudus’ time.”

Gyan, who previously played for Sunderland and Al Ain, extolled Kudus’ prowess, underscoring his impact both domestically and internationally.

“He stands out as the lone Ghanaian excelling in Europe, and not just in any league but the Premier League.

“His brilliance extends beyond Ghana’s borders, resonating across Africa. He’s currently the standout African player, and we must rally behind him.”

Kudus made his transition to West Ham from Ajax last summer, making an impressive debut in England’s top-tier league, registering four assists and netting 13 goals, seven of which came in the Premier League.

Since his debut for the Black Stars in 2019, Kudus has notched up 11 goals in 32 appearances.
