Ghana and West Ham United star Kudus Mohammed reveals he’s Hearts of Oak fan


Mohammed Kudus, the Ghanaian football star, recently revealed his childhood allegiance to local club Hearts of Oak. In an interview with Sky Sports, Kudus expressed his support for the historic team while growing up in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Hearts of Oak, known as the oldest existing club in Ghana, has a remarkable history of success both domestically and internationally. They have won 21 Ghana League titles, including an impressive streak of six consecutive victories from 1997 to 2002. Additionally, they have achieved notable triumphs in continental competitions such as the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup, leaving a lasting impact on Ghanaian football.

Kudus nostalgically described the electrifying atmosphere surrounding Hearts of Oak matches as “crazy” and emphasized the deep connection he felt with the team due to its roots in his hometown. Despite the club’s recent decline, currently occupying the 11th position in the ongoing Ghana Premier League, Kudus’s admiration for Hearts of Oak underscores its enduring legacy and continued significance within Ghanaian football culture.

Meanwhile, Kudus is currently making waves at West Ham United after completing a transfer from Ajax Amsterdam to the English Premier League. He has already scored an impressive 13 goals across all competitions, further solidifying his talent and potential on the international stage.


“As a kid in Accra, Ghana, I loved Hearts of Oak. They’re a big deal there, winning lots of titles and stuff. The games were wild, especially in my hometown. It was like a party every time they played.”

“Hearts [of Oak],” I said. “The games were crazy. It’s in Accra, where I grew up.”

“Sure, they’re not as dominant as they used to be. Right now, they’re kind of in the middle of the pack in the league. But to me, they’re still special.”

Even though I’m playing in England now for West Ham United, my heart is still with Hearts of Oak. It’s where my love for football began, you know?
