Double loss to Liverpool

They say that everything sticks and Liverpool infected Ajax with bad luck with injuries. In the 9th minute of the game, Mohammed Kudus had to be substituted. The extent of the injury has not been known until today's testing: injury to the right meniscus.

It's serious enough that have to undergo surgery. It is not clear the time of withdrawal nor has it been specified in the club's statement, but it is estimated that he will not be able to play again, at least, until after the Eredivisie winter break.

Against Liverpool he jumped to play his fourth game with Ajax, but in the previous three he had left such an image that his injury is already a great drama for Erik ten Hag. The Ghanaian in two of his three appearances had won the MVP of the match award.

But what's more, Kudus was supposed to be a fundamental piece for the scheme that Ten Hag finally seemed to have found against the Heernveen. A necessary victory after the defeat of the previous day. In it, and already with Klaassen on the squad, he had placed Kudus as playmaker in a 4-2-3-1 as was established at the beginning against Liverpool, being the 4-3-1-2 hitch. An injury worth lamenting more than necessary.
