"Twenty-year-old Kudus came into action with Ajax four times this month and scored a hundred percent in terms of victories: FC Emmen (4-0), Feyenoord (0-3), VVV-Venlo (3-1) and Vitesse (1-3) were all defeated. The Ghanaian was also accurate against Feyenoord and VVV-Venlo.

"Kudus succeeds teammate Jurrien Timber, who was awarded the prize in April."

He was joined by two other teammates. Kudus won the Eredivisie title as well as the KNVB trophy with the team in his first season.
