However, Mohammed Kudus, who plies his trade at West Ham United, felt the criticism of his performance in the two games was unfair, triggering him to respond harshly to the fans.

Kudus replied to one of the posts on X in the comments section, describing the fans who had issues with his performance as "dumb."

His reply shocked many as they expected better from him as a professional football player.

Jeffery Asare says Kudus' behaviour unacceptable

Reacting to this, Jeffery Asare, who now works for Kumasi-based Sompa FM, said Mohammed Kudus' behaviour was disrespectful and unacceptable.

He said Ghanaian football fans are the real owners of the national teams and, for that matter, have every right to criticise any player they may have issues with.

Mr Asare said Kudus must be told by his advisers that he is not better than many of the great players who played for the Black Stars and were criticised by the fans.

"Kudus is an average player when it comes to world-class football or the national team. He would be a top player with time only if he has a good attitude," he said.
"You have not reached anywhere, you are only a young man playing for West Ham. When fans ask you to release the ball early, you have the audacity to insult them when the Black Stars you are playing have had far better players than you," he added.
