Ajax coach annoyed by Mohammed Kudus’ injury

August 3, 2021 By 0 Comments

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is annoyed that his trusted midfielder Mohammed Kudus may not be available for the club’s first match of the season due to injury.

Kudus is nursing an ankle injury and has been ruled out of the Johan Cruijff Shield this weekend against PSV.

And his availability is unknown as Ajax get their campaign underway next week with a home meeting against NEC Nijmegen.

Injury disrupted Kudus’ fine form in pre-season, and that has left Erik ten Hag irritated.

“Very annoying. I expect his walker to come off this week. Then we can look further,” the Ajax head coach has said in an interview.

Erik ten Hag added, “We have no indication. The past taught me that I have to be careful. NEC will be a difficult story.”

Although he ended his first season with two trophies, Kudus sat out of action for four months with a meniscal injury.

He will hope to return to action soon and stay fit throughout the season.
