Kwadwo Asamoah ready to play as left-back for Juventus this season
There is no argument when it comes to where Kwadwo Asamoah is best deployed.
The thing is, ever since joining Juventus two summers ago,
Asamoah has rarely played in his more natural central midfield position — the same spot where he made his name at Udinese.
But as time has gone on, Asamoah has developed into one heck of a wingback, becoming one of the more consistent performers for Antonio Conte’s 102-point Juventus last season.
That has spurned talk of where he might fit in case Conte went with a four-man defense like folks in the Italian press had been suggesting for months.
And even with Max Allegri now running the show, the possibility of a four-man defense being used still remains.
What does Asamoah think of potentially being a left back this season? Well, he got asked about it on Friday.
“In these first few friendlies we have played with the formation we used last year, but in case Allegri decides to change, for me it would be no problem to adapt as I did two years ago when I arrived at Juve. From an internal midfielder I switched out to the wing. No problem then? I repeat, no problem, ever. I played in that role in Udine.”
