Ghana international midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has revealed his delight at coming back from a long spell in the stands after a sustaining an injury several months ago.
The all action midfielder and wing back had been out of competitive football for the last 337 days before making his debut this season in Juventus’ last Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Bologna.
The 26-year old talks about the support he had from loved ones and beliefs his recovery is in full throttle as he takes each day at a time. “I’m training every day with the team in order to get back to full fitness.
I can tell I’m improving day by day and I’m happy.
By remaining on this track I’ll be back to my old self – my career is still a long one and I’ve got many years ahead of me,” he said to Juventus’ official website on Friday.
He added: “It’s not easy to be sidelined for such a long time, I’ve been watching games at home or at the stadium with an ever increasing desire to be back out there alongside my team-mates.
“I’ve had great support from my family, staff and team-mates, who have always been able to find the right words to give me the positivity I’ve required on my road to recovery. Now I’m on my way back and I can’t wait to be out on the pitch again.”
Asamoah also takes time to speak about his new teammate Dybala who arrived from Palermo this summer transfer window and thinks he can help Juventus defend their title this season.
He also spoke about “After a difficult start we’re back to winning ways again. Winning is crucial for us. Beginning a season slowly is something that can happen, but we must remain positive and aware that we can always do better.
“Dybala’s blessed with great technical quality and plenty of promise. He’s also a great lad. Cuadrado possesses creativity and pace, and is a really tricky customer to deal with. Morata makes the difference, while Pogba has an excellent mentality and is getting better with every game.”
