Asamoah 'safe' after bus attack

Kwadwo Asamoah is thankful he emerged “safe” from Naples after his window was smashed by rocks thrown at the team bus.

The Juventus midfielder was sitting at the window when the bus drove into the Stadio San Paolo last night.

Hooligans pelted the vehicle with eggs, bottles and even rocks, one of which smashed the window in front of Asamoah.

“Hello to everyone,” wrote Asamoah on his Twitter feed.

“For all those asking, I am fine, thank God. I’m happy to have escaped safe and with a point from this game. Have a good weekend.”The Ghanaian midfielder was not in the starting XI for the 1-1 draw last night, but director Beppe Marotta assured it was a technical decision and had nothing to do with the pre-match fright.

There have been numerous arrests of Juventus and Napoli fans after the game on Friday evening, as there were scuffles, objects were thrown and cars set alight around the stadium.
