Ghana’s Mohammed Kudus has dismissed a Guardian Sports publication that claim the Ajax player reportedly suggested he is better than Brazilian star Neymar.
UK-based tabloid, the Guardian, on Wednesday, November 23, 2022 reported that Kudus had said Brazil star, Neymar Jr is not a better player than him- a story that has sparked huge uproar on the internet.
“He’s not better than me. He’s just a higher profile player, that’s all,” the Ghanaian was quoted as having said by the Guardian.
“He is Neymar, captain of Brazil and a superstar. I am Mohammed Kudus, the talented Ghanaian midfielder and burgeoning superstar.”
However, the Ajax playmaker questioned the motive behind the publication before branding it as “FAKE NEWS.”
The duo faced off in a feisty encounter when the Black Stars lost 3-0 to Brazil in an international friendly, and Neymar Jr. was subsequently yellow carded when it got hotter.
