Black Stars midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, believes his battle with Brian Brobbey at Ajax for a starting role is helping the club achieve the needed results.

The pair have been the two strikers for Alfred Schreuder this season in all competitions. Despite starting the season as the first-choice, Brobbey was relegated to the bench with Kudus slotting in as the focal point of attack. 

The Ghanaian returned to the starting line-up on Tuesday, November 1, in UEFA Champions League win over Rangers, for the first time after starting from the bench in the previous three games. 

Speaking after the 3-1 win, Kudus said during the post-match conference, “You want to play every single game but Brobbey got the chance too and he was scoring and doing well too. 

“He is my guy and I am happy for him but at the same time we have a healthy competition which is to push each other to do the best for the team.

“I think it’s helping the whole team grow. There’s competition everywhere in every position so we just keep pushing each other in a positive way in training and pushing each other to the highest limit.”

While Brobbey was an unused substitute, Kudus scored and provided an assist as well as taking him the Man of the Match award at the end of the game. 

The Ghanaian international was involved in six goals in six games in the competition as Ajax dropped to the Europa League.
