Story: Sports Desk

West Ham United midfielder Mohammed Kudus reported to the Black Stars camp on Tuesday, January 9, ahead of their departure to Ivory Coast for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The 23-year-old had missed the first week of the team’s camping after he was reported to have picked up a ‘slight injury’ while playing for the Hammers.

Kudus, having ‘rested’ in Accra following arrival from London, teamed up with the rest of the squad in Kumasi.

The former Ajax man also trained with the team on Tuesday afternoon, their last before the departure to Ivory Coast for the continental showpiece. 

Upon his arrival in Kumasi, the midfielder was seen with a medical team from West Ham who are expected to help the national team in managing the player.

Kudus also missed Ghana’s pre-AFCON friendly against Namibia on Monday night which ended goalless at the Baba Yara Stadium.

It’s unknown whether the Right to Dream academy graduate will be fit in time for Ghana’s opening game against Cape Verde on January 14.
