Kudus has now scored six Eredivisie goals in 17 matches this season. He also has four goals in the UEFA Champions League despite Ajax's group stage exit.
Ajax is without a win in the league in 2023 leading to the sacking of manager Alfred Schreuder.
Ajax sack Alfred Schreuder
Following the 1-1 draw at the Johan Cryuff Arena, Ajax have terminated the contract of Alfred Schreuder. The manager replaced Erik ten Hag in the summer with Ajax fifth on the table and seven points adrift off leaders Feyenoord.
"Ajax has immediately suspended Alfred Schreuder. The trainer's contract was valid until June 30, 2024, but will now be terminated immediately.
"The many points lost and the team's lack of development are the main reasons for this decision. The club management no longer has confidence in further cooperation," wrote Ajax on their official website.
Kudus spotted with praying mat
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghana midfielder Mohammed Kudus made sure he observed his afternoon prayers before Ajax's trip to Feyenoord for the top of the table clash in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Kudus was named in the starting eleven for the first time this season after missing all three games in 2023 due to illness.
Before leaving the team's bus for the cliffhanger encounter between the two Dutch giants, Kudus is seen with his praying mat.
