Ajax has confirmed that midfielder Kudus Mohammed will be sidelined for several months.
The Ghanaian international, who was making his UEFA Champions league debut on Wednesday night against Liverpool at the Johan Cruijff Arena picked up an injury in the early minutes of the game after a clash with Fabinho.
Efforts from the Ajax medical team to get him back onto the field proved futile.
The youngster’s debut ended prematurely and he was replaced by Dutch international Quincy Promes in the 9th minute as Ajax went on to lose 1-0 to the English champions.
After a scan by the Dutch champions on the young midfielder this morning, the club confirmed in a press statement that Kudus will have to go through surgery and will be sidelined for several months.
“Mohammed Kudus was injured on Wednesday evening in the UEFA Champions League match against Liverpool. Research has shown that there is an injury to his meniscus in his right knee that requires surgery. It is expected that it will no longer be available for use before the winter break,” Ajax said in a press statement on it website.
Kudus joined Ajax in the summer from FC Nordsjælland for a fee reported to be €9 million. He has so far featured in four official matches for Ajax, scoring once and providing 3 assists.
