Asamoah wins affection of Juventus fans
By Ameenu Shardow
Kwadwo Asamoah has emerged the poster boy of the Juventus team following his consistent performances for the side.
The Ghana international’s explosive displays since arriving from Udinese just this summer has seen him won the hearts of the Bianconeri fans.
There was a Ghana flag with the 24-year-old’s initials boldly inscribed on in the stands during Tuesday’s 3-0 thrashing of Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League game – where the ex Liberty Professionals’ player was again immense.
The Italian champions are already profiting from the €9m bargain they paid Udinese this summer for 50% ownership of Asamoah.
The impressive performances of the Ghanaian have seen sales of his merchandize sour as he dominates the front pages of newspapers and magazines in Italy while also emerging one of the most talked of athletes in the electronic media.
Above all, Asamoah has earned the trust and respect of his teammates in a relatively short space of time in Turin.
