Hammer’s 9,000 mile Kudus trip


Kudus scored a stunning freekick for Ghana

There are many different types of West Ham fans , ranging from the fair weather to the super fan.

One of which  is a fellow called Ian, who recently made the 9000 mile round trip to the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi to see our new signing Mohammed Kudus per West Ham Zone.

He was not disappointed as our new boy hit a peach of a free kick to equalize just before half time in the AFCON qualifier against the Central African Republic

Our Super fan, Ian told GhanaWeb: “I am here to watch Mohammed Kudus, our new signing. He is very skilful and strong. We love him.

Ian added.“West Ham are massive everywhere we go.  I have come all the way from the UK to watch Mohammed Kudus and the Black Stars!”

To fly all that way to see someone who has only played five minutes in the claret and blue shows a remarkable dedication to the cause.

He must have a very understanding wife !
