Ghana international Kwadwo Asamoah has been named in Inter Milan’s starting eleven in their Serie A opener against Lecce on Monday night.

The Nerazzurri will begin their 2019/20 top flight campaign with a game against newly-promoted outfit Lecce at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Antonio Conte is aiming to get off to a flying start by naming a strong starting eleven which includes known servant Kwadwo Asamoah.

The versatile 30-year-old left-back is familiar with his gaffer’s expectations after the pair worked for two years at rivals Juventus.

Asamoah left the Bianconeri last summer to join as a free agent while Conte moved to the San Siro this summer after spending two seasons at English giants Chelsea.
