Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah says he is willing to play in any position for the club.
The 23-year-old Asamoah, who joined from Udinese in the summer, marked his debut with a superb strike in Juve’s 4-2 Super Cup triumph over Napoli back in August.
Asamoah was initially brought in to provide cover for the central midfield trio of Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio, but the Ghana international has made his mark on the left side of midfield.
It’s a position he feels more than comfortable in, although Asamoah is keen to stress that he will play wherever manager Antonio Conte and his assistant Angelo Alessio want him.
“The manager liked what he saw in that game and from there we’ve gone on in the same way. I’m prepared to play in any position,” Asamoah said on the club’s website.
Asamoah is quickly winning over fans of the current Serie A champions. His recent displays include a spectacular overhead kick in the 6-1 win over Pescara last Saturday.
“It was a good result, but it hasn’t changed anything as far as the dressing room atmosphere is concerned,” he said.
“We’ve begun well and taken many points from our start to the season, but there are still plenty of games to play and we need to hang in there, fighting all the way to the end.”
Juve currently lead Serie A after 12 rounds with 31 points which is four better than rivals Inter Milan in second.
