Mohammed Kudus could not hide from attention after visiting a KFC spot in Accra following his return from the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The Black Stars midfielder spent a couple of days in Ghana's capital before leaving for England to reunite with his West Ham United teammates.

During his short time back home, the West Ham star went out for food, where he got swamped by workers from KFC in Accra.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media, the shy midfielder felt a bit uncomfortable as the workers tried to cheer him on while taking the video. Kudus is heard saying it's okay in Twi, a local language in Ghana, but the fans made sure they enjoyed the moment.

Kudus was Ghana's best player at the Africa Cup of Nations, scooping two Man of the Match awards in two games. He also netted two times and caused the penalty which led to Ghana's second goal against Mozambique.

The 23-year-old has returned to England and he is expected to make the team for West Ham's game against Bournemouth on Thursday, as reported by Ghana Soccernet.

Kudus pens apology to Ghanaians

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Mohammed Kudus penned a heartfelt apology to Ghanaians following the Black Stars' early Africa Cup of Nations elimination.

The Black Stars were knocked out of the tournament after a last-minute collapse in their final game against Mozambique last Monday.

The four-time African champions, who were on the verge of finishing second in Group B, threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in injury time.

Kudus tipped to win Ballon d'Or

Sports Brief also reported that Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus has been tipped by Jeremy Seethal, his coach at the youth level to one day win the Ballon d'Or.

Having missed the opening game due to an injury, the West Ham United star stole the show in the biggest game of Group B with his Man of the Match performance as Ghana drew 2-2 with Egypt at AFCON.

His dazzling display has seen him being mentioned in the Ballon d'Or argument, with one of his former coaches Jeremy Seethal predicting a podium finish for the 23-year-old.
