AFC Ajax and Ghana international midfielder Mohammed Kudus has been ruled out of action until next year, the Dutch giants have announced.
The 20-year old after just six minutes picked up an injury in his debut Champions League game against Liverpool at the Johann Cruyff Arena on Wednesday night.
Kudus sustained the knee injury after a collision with Liverpool midfielder Fabinho before he was substituted.
The club has announced he has suffered a meniscus injury that will keep him sidelined for several months.
According to Ajax, there is an injury to his meniscus in his right knee that requires surgery.
It is expected that he will no longer be available for play before the winter break.
