Mohammed Kudus has reflected on his bicycle kick goal against Manchester City on the final day of the 2023/24 English Premier League season.

The Ghana international wrapped up an impressive campaign with a fantastic strike as West Ham United lost at the Etihad to the eventual champions, Manchester City.

The former Ajax star had given his side a lifeline moments before half-time after Phil Foden - Man City's Player of the Season - had scored two quick goals for the hosts.

However, Rodri restored City's two-goal lead in the second half to put the game beyond the Hammers on Sunday, May 19, 2024.

"As an attacker, doing my best to get the team back in the game. We didn't give up at 2-0. It gave the team the energy that we could be back in the game, so I am glad it went in. It is one of those times in the game that you follow your instincts and I know I have the quality to do stuff like that because this is not the first time," he said in the post-match presser.
"I just went for it, and I am glad it went in and gave the team the incentive to get back into the game," he added.

Kudus ended his first Premier League campaign with 8 goals and 6 assists, per Transfermarkt.

Kudus scores against Manchester City

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Mohammed Kudus scored a spectacular overhead kick to reduce Manchester City's lead on the final day of the 2023/24 Premier League season.

The league leaders dominated the first half with two well-taken goals from Player of the Season, Phil Foden.

Despite that, Rodri sealed the win and the title for Pep Guardiola's side, who are now English champions for the fourth time in a row.

Guardiola described the Ghanaian attacking midfielder as an exceptional player.
