Coach Nimley explained that it was after some years, apparently when Kudus had blossomed into a household name, that it dawned on him to ask officials of the team whether it was the same person who partook in the player recruitment exercise years ago.

He praised Mohammed Kudus for his exceptional football abilities and expressed delight that he had signed for a club that would guarantee him playing time.

At the time of writing this report, the video had gathered over 1,000 likes and 11 comments.
