Kwadwo Asamoah passed fit to face AC Milan

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah passed a late fitness test and named in Juventus’ 21-man squad to face AC Milan at the San Siro today.

The versatile player suffered a hamstring strain and missed Europa League return leg clash with Trabzonspor.

But Asamoah trained on Friday and convinced head coach Antonio Conte about his fitness level.

Asamoah has started 21 times for Juve this season and is already closing in on matching the total minutes played this term that he managed during the whole of the last campaign.

He will come up against Ghana teammate Michael Essien who has been named in Milan’s squad by Clarence Seedorf.

Compatriot Sulley Muntari will miss the match due to suspension after picking up five yellow cards.
