Masters scout Ajax: ‘Very technical and very fast, resembles Seedorf’


John Steen Olsen followed Mohammed Kudus for two years at FC Nordsjaelland, before Ajax struck. The Danish master scout (77) of the Amsterdammers has high expectations of the nineteen-year-old Ghanaian.

“One of the greatest talents in Denmark. He is a boy with so much quality,” says Olsen The Telegraph about Kudus. “Technically very good, and very fast. I have often seen him at work with Henk Veldmate (chief scout of Ajax, ed.). He is also very enthusiastic.”

Olsen thinks that Ajax can benefit from the versatility of Kudus. “Kudus can play in all positions in midfield anyway, but in the front he can also play in the striker or on the right. That makes him so interesting. He looks a bit like a young Clarence Seedorf, although I don’t like it to compare players to other players. Kudus is ultimately just Kudus. ”

The master scout is not surprised that Ajax paid no less than nine million euros to get the young Kudus loose at Nordsjaelland. “Such amounts are normal at this time. There was also a lot of interest for Kudus.”
