Former Black Stars player, Kevin-Prince Boateng has named Mohammed Kudus as man of the moment in the ongoing Qatar World Cup.
Prince picked the Black Stars midfielder ahead of stars like Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have all had varying impacts on the campaign of their nations.
22-year-old Kudus has been immense for Ghana at the Mundial, scoring twice and assisting in the Black Stars’ 3-2 win over South Korea on Monday.
After the game, the Ajax star has received rave reviews globally, with Barcelona Sporting Director Jordi Cruyff, confirming the Catalan club is monitoring his progress.
Speaking as a television pundit in Germany, Prince, who featured for Ghana at the 2010 and 2014 World Cup, expressed his admiration for the talented youngster.
“Kudus is the best player in the World Cup at the moment and he overly impresses with what he does. It’s incredible what he can do with the ball,” Boateng said on German television Sport1, as quoted by All Football.
“It will only be a matter of time before he moves, after the Dutch experience, to a top club,” Boateng said, “Kudus is currently the World Cup best player.”
Mohammed Kudus has 10 goals in 21 games this season for Ajax in all competitions, flourishing as a false nine after initially struggling for game time at the start of the season.
