Asamoah on new Juventus role

Kwadwo Asamoah has admitted that he had difficulties adapting to a new role at Italian champions Juventus.

The Ghanaian was accustomed to playing in central midfield, but he’s been converted to a left wing-back by Antonio Conte following his summer switch from Udinese.

“It wasn’t easy when I first joined Juventus,” he told TV3. “I was used to playing my football in another position.

“But now I play on the wing in defence and in attack.”

Asamoah has been a success in Turin so far and, thanks to 25 appearances, he’s been used more than any other player by the Old Lady this term.

“The secret behind my success? Training,” he continued. “We work hard at Juve and that allowed me to adapt to my best.”
