Mohammed Kudus reveals meaning behind new goal celebration


Ghanaian sensation, Mohammed Kudus, has shed light on the meaning behind his distinctive goal celebration, which has rapidly gained popularity among fans.

The former Ajax midfielder, who joined the Hammers in the summer, has opted for a celebration that involves taking a seat on the advertising hoardings, facing the pitch, with fans cheering in the background switching from his usual crossing of arms which was initially accredited to him.

Despite the celebration swiftly becoming a viral sensation, Kudus revealed that the gesture holds no deeper connotations. In an interview on the club’s official website, the 23-year-old clarified the mystery behind his unique celebration.

“Obviously when you get to this level, people try to read deeper meanings into it. (But) this doesn’t mean anything, bro!” Kudus stated with a laugh. He continued, “I’m just taking a deep breath; it means nothing to me. I’m just sitting down to take a deep breath. Yeah, you know (from working hard in the game),” he added, holding back laughter.

Kudus, who joined West Ham for a remarkable £38 million from Ajax, has been a standout performer for the Hammers, making an immediate impact in the Premier League.

The Ghana star’s celebration has become synonymous with his goal-scoring moments, creating a distinctive and memorable image for West Ham fans.

The 23-year-old has already notched up nine goals and one assist in 21 appearances across all competitions for West Ham, solidifying his reputation as a rising star in English football.
