Black Stars midfielder Mohammed Kudus scored his first goal for Ajax this season after failing to secure a last-minute move to Everton.
The Ghana international attempted to force his way out of the Dutch giants this week, but the club stood firm, and he scored a good goal on Saturday as Ajax maintained their perfect start to the season with a comprehensive win against Cambur.
Kudus started Saturday’s game on the bench for the fifth time this season, but when he came on in the second half, the 22-year-old made an immediate impact.
Kudus entered the game in the 61st minute and scored the fourth goal in the 4-0 victory three minutes later.
Kudus had agreed personal terms with Everton and had boycotted training on Wednesday in an attempt to force a departure to the Premier League.
The midfielder, unhappy with his bench role after excelling during pre-season, wanted to leave, but Ajax insisted he stay.
The goal increases his chances of starting Ajax’s next game which is against Rangers in the Champions League on Wednesday.
