“It got to a point I didnt even know what else to do. I was training to get back to my normal form but it wasn’t up to. Everytime I trained, I felt this pain in my knee. At a point, anytime I was getting better I also had different injuries which were minor”.

”It made me cry because I was wondering what was going on. So I had to pray and try and do everything possible to get back. Some people even joked about it and were thinking it was the end of my career. I thank God I came back and had a fantastic season”, he concluded.

Kwadwo Asamoah had a good season with Inter Milan where he played 32 matches in the Serie A and scored one goal.
