Asamoah Gyan Hails Kudus as ‘World-Class’ Potential After Impressive West Ham Display

Asamoah Gyan, Mohammed Kudus

The 23-year-old has already been involved in three goals for the Hammers this season and netted his debut Premier League goal on Sunday against Newcastle United.

The Ghanaian came on as a second-half substitute to score a late equalizer as West Ham drew 2-2 with Eddie Howe’s side.

Reacting to Kudus’ performance against Newcastle, Gyan said the playmaker’s understanding of the game has improved and he’ll become a world-class player if he continues on that trajectory.

“I have seen some big changes in Kudus play. He is beginning to understand how to move into spaces to receive the ball and releasing the ball at the right time. If he continues like this consistently, he will be a world-class player,” Gyan wrote on X (Twitter).


The former Sunderland striker also commented on David Moyes’ reluctance to start Kudus in Premier League games.

According to Gyan, though, the West Ham manager has managed Kudus’ time very well and will give him starts at the right time.

“The coach is managing him very well. I think the coach is convinced if he wants to start him in a premier league game

“I had the same situation when I moved to Sunderland. Fans didn’t understand why a record-signing player should be coming on as a sub and kept proving himself. Steve Bruce made me understand that he didn’t want to put too much pressure on me and that the right moment will come. It came and I took it,” he added.

Kudus is yet to start a Premier League game for West Ham since joining them but has started in each of their Europa League games.
