Kudus beats Lookman to win Europa League Player of the Season

Mohammed Kudus, of West Ham United and Ghana, has been chosen as the 2023–24 UEFA Europa League player of the tournament by WhoScored.com.

Despite Ademola Lookman of Nigeria sending Atalanta to the Europa League title with a hat-trick in the final match against Bayer Leverkusen, the 23-year-old won the honor.

The Ghanaian had a fantastic season in Europe, helping West Ham get to the Europa League quarterfinals with five goals in nine games.

Nonetheless, WhoScored.com has chosen Kudus and Lookman to its Europa League Team of the Season.

AS Roma goalkeeper Miles Svilar gets the nod between the ticks, while the back four of the Team of the Season is made up of Freiburg’s Ritsu Doan, Atalanta’s Berat Djimsiti, Sporting Lisbon’s Goncalo Inacio and Atalanta’s Matteo Ruggeri.

Meanwhile, confirming Kudus as their Europa League Player of the Season, WhoScored.com said: “With a WhoScored rating of 7.57, West Ham star Mohammed Kudus is our Europa League Player of the Tournament.

“The Ghanaian attacker notched a total of five goals in nine games, with three of those coming against Freiburg in both the group stage and round of 16. Kudus also made 18 successful dribbles and 13 key passes across the campaign.”

Kudus enjoyed a productive debut season in the English topflight and was the first player in Europe’s top five leagues to record a hundred take-ons in the just-ended season.
