According to Cole, West Ham manager, David Moyes needs to figure out a way of getting the best from the hugely talented player.

“Kudus is a terrific player,” he told Sunday People, as quoted by West Ham Zone.
“The challenge for David Moyes and his team is finding a way to get the best out of both Kudus and Jarrod Bowen. One of them will end up playing centrally, that’s how I see it.
“Michail Antonio is a fantastic player but on the wrong side of 30, and you have to manage his minutes when you’re also in European competition.”

The 23-year-old has now scored in back-to-back games for West Ham, including in the win against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.

Kudus joined West Ham in the summer transfer window from Dutch giants, Ajax Amsterdam, as reported by
