Ghana football star Mohammed Kudus recently opened up about the challenges he faced when he first joined the Right to Dream Academy.

The 23-year-old, who initially played for Strong Tower FC, later transitioned to Danish club FC Nordsjaelland.

In an interview with The Guardian, Kudus shared the difficulties he encountered, particularly the emotional strain of being away from his family after joining the academy at the age of 11.

Despite the hardships, the forward, now playing for West Ham United, emphasized the necessity of making sacrifices for success.

“It comes down to sacrifices,” Kudus says. “I moved to the academy when I was 11 or 12, and I had to stay far away from home. Sometimes I’d go home just two times a year.

“It was very difficult not to see my family. I remember sometimes wanting to go back home. As time went on I realised everything I was doing was for them. It would definitely have an impact on their lives. That kept me going,” he added.

Kudus’s exceptional performances at FC Nordsjaelland caught the attention of top clubs, leading to his move to Ajax before eventually joining a Premier League side.
