Kwadwo Asamoah comfortable as left-back for Ghana at Nations Cup

Published on: 22 January 2013

Ghana star Kwadwo Asamoah has no problems playing as a left-back at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Asamoah has been re-assigned as an offensive midfielder to a fullback by coach Kwesi Appiah.

The 24-year-old plays in the same position at his Italian Serie A side Juventus since moving last summer from Udinese.

Concerns have been raised about Asamoah's new role and how that was making him ineffective but he is not worried about that.

"I can play in many positions and if the Coach has decided to play me at left-back, I have no problem with it," Asamoah said.

"I play according to the Coach’s instructions and tactics. Overall, I am very comfortable playing at left-back."

    @Thank God we are not zambians, Thank God you and who are not zambians? In as much as you are proud of mother Ghana doesn't make zambians aliens. If you are thanking God for not placing ur ancestors on the land of the Zeds thats ur own point of view. After all not all Ghanaians side with you, that era of discrimination is burried. Thank u my friend.

    Not true. He's great as a left-back. As a winger he rarely scores. Now as a left-back he scores, gives assists. And still you're not happy. He was the best player in the Congo match. And he also helped our defence alot. The combination of Solid defence + Occasional coming up to the attack is perfect for him!
