Ajax coach, Erik Ten Hag confirmed that Kudus Mohammed will miss the rest of the season after picking up a rib injury.
The midfielder suffered the injury during the international break with Ghana as he took a knock early in the South Africa game in the final round of the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
After a series of scans, the rib injury appears worse than expected with a suspected fracture and the former Nordsjaelland player won’t be available for selection till early next year.
With the Africa Cup of Nations expected to kick off in Cameroon on January 9, Kudus will be in a race against time to make Ghana’s squad.
The tournament starts on January 9 and Black Stars are expected to start preparations in late December.
The 21-year-old has missed 29 games for Ajax due to injury since joining in 2020.
Kudus has suffered five different injuries since his move to Dutch giants in August last year.
