Kwadwo Asamoah reveals reason behind his departure from Juventus

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has opened up reasons behind his from Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan after turning down a new contract from the Bianconeri.

The versatile enforcer was reported to have undergone a routine medical at Inter Milan before he quickly came out to refute the report.

However, just a day after debunking the medical claims, Asamoah scribbled a heartfelt message to the Old Ladies faithful - where he announced his departure.

"I am immensely proud to have been part of Juventus - explains the versatile Ghanaian who spent six seasons at the Turin based club.

“Although they offered me a new contract, albeit with great respect, I chose to undertake a new adventure elsewhere", referring to the proposed move to Inter Milan, with whom he has already agreed a pre-contract.

"Every person in this club will have a special place in my heart, especially the fantastic fans - Asamoah continues in the tweet

“it will be difficult to play against Juventus in the future, but I had to make this decision in the interest of my family"

Asamoah also thanks "my two fantastic coaches, Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte".

Asamoah scored 4 goals in 116 appearances for Juventus during his seven-year stay in Turin, and won a total of 14 titles.
