Dutch football legend, Marco Van Basten, believes Ghana’s Mohammed Kudus is a better player than Manchester United’s Brazilian winger Antony.
He said this in a discussion in the aftermath of Kudus scoring his first goal from a free kick for Ajax in the team’s 4-0 win over Sparta Rotterdam in the Eredivisie.
The goal put Kudus on nine goals and an assist in 21 league games this season in the best run of his time at the Dutch club and Van Basten sees the Black Stars player as a better player than Antony who moved to Man United for 86 million Pounds this past off-season.
“I like him much better than Antony. He’s a better footballer and he’s more fun to play with. Antony had moves, but he could also be so muddled. Kudus has a much firmer technique and knows where he is going. Antony may be faster, but Kudus is smarter and more technical. He is much more of a footballer and an all-rounder for the team” Van Basten said on Ziggo Sport.
Kudus scored two goals and added an assist in three games for the Ghana in Qatar in his first FIFA World Cup outing.
