Mohammed Kudus nets first goal of the season for Ajax after failed transfer to Everton

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.
