    Having joined Juventus from Udinese in the summer, Kwadwo Asamoah enjoyed a devastating debut campaign in Turin, instantly winning the affection of the fans with his boundless energy and commitment to the cause.

    The fleet footed midfielder got his Bianconeri career off to the best possible start, scoring on his first outing against Napoli in the Super Cup and catching the eye with plenty of purposeful forays down the left flank in the championship.

    In total, the Ghanaian made 27 Serie A appearances, featured for 1976 minutes and weighed in with two goals against Genoa and Pescara.

    Asamoah’s overall contribution sees him join Sebastian Giovinco and Mirko Vucinic as the team’s third-most effective provider with six assists, while his explosive bursts into the box also directly resulted in two penalties being awarded in the Bianconeri’s favour.

    His natural precision with the ball at his feet enabled him to complete 88.9% of his 917 attempted passes, the highest percentage registered by a Juventus midfielder in the 2012/13 season.

    A central midfielder by trade, Asamoah made a seamless adaptation to life on the left-hand side of Antonio Conte’s midfield five, delivering a total of 80 crosses over the course of the campaign, a figure only bettered by Stephan Lichtsteiner and Giovinco.
