West Ham United legend, Anton Ferdinand has offered pieces of advice to Ghana midfielder, Mohammed Kudus following his switch to the club.
Kudus joined the Hammers on a five-year deal from Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam.
The 23-year-old was a subject of a number of transfer moves with Brighton and Manchester United pursuing the former Nordsjaelland but the last season’s EUROPA Conference League winners won the bid with a 45 million pound price.
Mohammed Kudus had these words of advice from Anton Ferdinand.
“I think your honesty you showed in that interview is something that our fans here will love in you as a footballer. I think any new player who comes to this fantastic football club should know that, you work hard first, you play second, which sounds like you, you work hard, play second and you will entertain the fans and when you do that the fans will love you forever,” he told Kudus, who thanked him for his words.
“Welcome to our fantastic club Mo. Be excited West Ham fans!!!! I certainly am. Make sure every one of you listen to the new episode of iron cast to hear him speak as a hammer for the first time,” he posted on Twitter.
Kudus becomes the third Ghanaian to play for West Ham after Andre Ayew and John Paintsil.
