West Ham United manager, David Moyes, has praised Ghana’s Mohammed Kudus for his goal-scoring performance on his full West Ham debut on Thursday.
Moyes said the Hammers needed a player to give them goals, which Kudus delivered in the 3-1 win over Backa Topola in the Europa League.
The 23-year-old played the full game for the first time since joining the Irons in the summer from Ajax.
“I thought Mo started the game really well and the team was playing well in the opening 20 minutes. He faded away, but in the end, he came up with one and maybe two goals, I’m being told, so I’m really, really pleased for him,” said Moyes after the game.
“He’s made a good start, we like him a lot and we’ll edge him in when we get the opportunities in the right moments to do so. I’m pleased because we needed someone to come up with goals tonight and he was the one who did it.”
Mohammed Kudus before this game has made two substitute appearances for West Ham against Luton and Manchester City.
