Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus has opened up on his three-month injury lay-off.

Kudu sustained an injured on his Champions League debut against Liverpool and was ruled out of action for several weeks.

The Ghanaian underwent a surgery and was expected to be about for three to six months.

However, the 20-year-old recovered quicker than expected.

"It has led me to discover a part of myself. It made me find out that I am very strong," he told Ajax TV as reported by Citi Sports.

"The Champions league is one of the biggest stages in the world. Imagine I have worked all my twenty years in life to play at that level and then get a hit like this."

He added, "It just made a tougher person than before."

"It is going to be a different beast out there."

Mohammed Kudus has made 15 appearances for Ajax so far this season, scored two goals and provided three assists in the process.
