Kwadwo Asamoah Is Becoming One of the Most Dangerous Players in Europe
Kwadwo Asamoah was bought from Udinese this summer where he had thrived as a centre midfielder.
Antonio Conte, with an embarrassment of midfield options, decided to turn the Ghanaian into a left midfielder.
The move has been a revelation and Asamoah is proving to be one of the best in Europe in this role. It is scary to think that he is actually better through the middle.
Asamoah was able to drive at Branislav Ivanovic throughout the match, using his searing pace and power to knock the ball past the Serbian and deliver dangerous crosses into the penalty area.
With strikers willing to drop deep or pull wide, such as Sebastian Giovinco and Mirko Vucinic, Asamoah is able to combine well and drive into the middle when afforded the opportunity.
