Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder has backed midfielder Mohammed Kudus despite his poor display against Napoli on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League.
The Ghanaian midfielder endured a difficult game, scoring the worse rating of 3.5 at the end of the match.
Kudus was replaced by Brian Brobbey after the hour mark, with the Dutch forward winning a penalty for their second goal in the 4-2 defeat to Napoli.
Although he had a bad game, Schreuder was impressed with his ability to mount pressure on defenders.
“He also does a lot of good things for us, such as the way he hunts and thus keeps the opponent moving. I like seeing how he does those things,” said Schreuder after the match.
Kudus scored in the reverse fixture in the Netherlands against Napoli and before that had netted against Liverpool and Rangers in the UEFA Champions League.
The Right to Dream Academy graduate has also scored four goals in the Eredivisie this season for Ajax Amsterdam.
