Kwadwoh Asamoah’s football career is one that has been notably plagued with series of injuries. He has been injured five times in a row in just four years(2013-2016). Injuries forced the left midfielder out of the fields for long 18 months, making him to miss games both for Ghana and Juventus. However, he is becoming consistent again, while hoping that injuries will this time around stay out of his way.

Midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah had already missed the whole of 2015 with the Black Stars, a year where Ghana lost narrowly to Ivory Coast in the final of the African Nations Cup but with the 2017 edition a few months away, Asamoah strongly desires to return to the national team. Speaking to Joy Sports on the issue, he said:

“For the Black Stars, I am ready to come back. I have spoken with the coach, the President and most of the people at the Ghana Football Association. I am hoping to come back strongly and join the team. Just that for the past one year, I have not been playing consistently so I will be very happy to join the team as soon as possible. If everything is good, if there is no injury, I will be happy to join the team.”

Kwadwo Asamoah has been tipped to join his former boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea, the man who brought him to Juvebtus FC from Italian club, Udinese.
