West Ham United defender Konstantinos Mavropanos has praised the qualities of Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus.
Mavropanos highlighted this in his pre-game press conference appearance before West Ham’s Europa League tie against FK Backa Topola on Thursday, November 30 at 17:45 GMT.
West Ham goes into the game on the back of a hard fought 2-1 win against Burnley at Turf Moor that had Mohammed Kudus star in the game by registering an assist and forcing Dara O’Shea to score an own goal.
The 23 year old’s influence wasn’t lost on Mavropanos who singled him out as a top player who shows his qualities every game.
“How Mo runs with the ball is at the top level and he has done a lot of things in the last couple of games with his goals and assists. Every single game, he shows his qualities.”
A win for West Ham guarantees qualification from Group A to the playoff stage against a UEFA Champions League team that finished third at the group stage.
Kudus has four goals and an assist in 16 games in all competitions since joining West Ham from Ajax on the final day of the 2023 main transfer window.
