Former Ghana international laryea kingson has urged Mohammed Kudus to join English premier league Liverpool over other European clubs chasing his signature.
The 19-year-old has been impressive so far this season after scoring 9 and providing 1 in 21 appearances for FC Nordsjaelland in Denmark, attracting interest from a host of top European clubs.
Laryea Kingston who is currently the youth coach of the Danish side confirmed this is an interview with goal.com
“At our team FCN [FC Nordsjaelland], Kudus is one of the important players and the head coach wants to build the team around him. Most of the games that he’s played, he did very well. And now most of the big European clubs are chasing him, so it’s good for him and it’s good for the country as well,”
He urged the former Ghana youth star to consider a club he will get more game time.
“The only thing is he should consider a club where he feels he could play week in week out. He’s young, so when he goes and he’s playing, it’s going to build his confidence but when he goes and he doesn’t get playing time, that’s when his confidence goes down and his performance will drop.
“Looking at Newcastle and Everton, for me I think Everton will fit his game because they give a lot of young players chances. Even the English FA mostly pick youth players at Everton [for national teams], so they will help him develop”, Laryea added.
He further explained that should Liverpool come calling, Mohammed Kudus should join last season’s UEFA Champions league winners.
“I will prefer Everton but if Liverpool comes in, they are a big club with guaranteed Champions League football, I think that [Liverpool] will help him a lot more than he will get at the other two clubs [Everton and Newcastle]. If I am in his shoes and I’m to pick between Liverpool, Everton and Newcastle, I know it’s going to be tough at Liverpool but I will choose Liverpool. Liverpool may already have a lot of good players at his position but so long as they want him, then they know what they want to do with him.”
Mohammed Kudus is a product of the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana, featuring for Ghana at the U17 and U20 level. He marked his debut for the Black Stars with a goal against South Africa last year.
