Asamoah reveals secrets of improved form



Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has proven his versatility at Italian champions Juventus where he has consistently shone in a wing-back role since joining half a season ago from Udinese.

So impressive has the 24-year-old been that some in Italy believe he has been the silent driver behind the Old Lady in the opening half of the season.

Kwadwo, who can play as a deep-lying central midfielder and a winger, also has an eye for goal when in the zone. Expected to be one of Ghana's key men at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Kwadwo attributes his success in Turin to a hectic training program.

"When I went there it wasn't easy because I went there as a midfielder," he told TV3 .

"But now I play on the wings both forward and at the back. I think the training helped me a lot because we train a lot in Italy."

There are speculations in Ghana that Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah is already mulling the possibility of Kwadwo filling in at the left-back role where the four-time African champions have been short for some time.
