West Ham United star Mohammed Kudus has opened up on his new goal celebration which has caught the attention of fans.
He claims that, in contrast to popular belief, his goal celebration is essentially meaningless.
The 23-year-old has made a great start to life in the Premier League since swapping Ajax Amsterdam for East London last summer
In addition, Kudus has been scoring goals for fun. On Sunday, the Hammers defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0, and Kudus scored twice.
Whenever he scored, though, he would sprint over to the billboard facing the West Ham supporters, take a seat, and fold his arms.
Some of the player’s fans have already noticed it on social media—it’s an iconic goal celebration that is quickly gaining popularity.
Reacting to his new goal celebration, Kudus said it has no real meaning, adding that he’s only trying to catch his breath.
“When you get to this stage and you do things, people try to read deeper meanings to it,” Kudus told Guvna B.
“This doesn’t mean anything. I’m just taking a deep breath, it means nothing to me. I just sit down to take a deep breath
Kudus, meanwhile, has now appeared in nine goal interactions since joining West Ham, tallying eight goals and one assist.
