Ghanaian footballer Kudus Mohammed has added a touch of Ghana to West Ham United's pre-season preparations by introducing Ghana jollof to the world.

A video shared by Joysports on X captures the Black Stars attacking midfielder, dressed in West Ham gear, enjoying the dish while providing a step-by-step guide to its preparation.

In the video, Kudus, sporting the iconic black West Ham jersey, enthusiastically extols the virtues of Ghanaian cuisine, encouraging everyone to try it with the promise of satisfaction.

He specifically praises plantains as a key ingredient in the dish, emphasizing their importance in creating its distinctive taste.

"I feel like I'm back in Ghana now. This is Ghanaian Jollof, one of my favourite meals. It's basically rice mixed with stew. Alongside, we have plantain, some salad, chicken, and kebab. The kebab is lamb with spices – it's quite popular and delicious. You should give it a go. Plantain is like banana but fried, and it's my favorite."

Kudus's culinary showcase coincides with his return to West Ham for pre-season training ahead of the upcoming 2024/2025 English Premier League season.

His return follows a standout debut season where he emerged as a pivotal figure in the club's attacking lineup.
