Asamoah: 'Movement was key'

Kwadwo Asamoah said the key was Juventus’ movement off the ball in the second half against Lyon.

Leonardo Bonucci scored a late goal to secure the 1-0 away result in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final.

“Above all in the second half we played well. The first half was alright, but we didn’t do enough of the movements we had practiced in training,” the Ghanaian told Sky Sport Italia.

“We also did better out of possession and weren’t pushed back so much.”

Juve are next in action on Monday evening against Livorno and squad rotation is down to a minimum.

“At this moment there are many players out injured, so the rest of us have to work twice as hard and it’s not easy.

“I am ready to play every game if the Coach asks, as I am a professional and prepared to do anything for the team. It’s better for a player to be on all the time than to be out of action.”
