Kwadwo Asamoah has voiced his delight at the level of consistency he has managed to bring to his performances throughout the 2013/14 season.
The Ghanaian international, who arrived from Udinese in the summer of 2012, has been one of this campaign’s most reliable performers for Juventus, and cites the benefits of a full winter break as a main factor behind his improved overall displays.
Speaking exclusively to the BBC, the 25-year-old said: "Last year, when I came back from the African Cup, I'd lost a lot of energy, I wasn't the same player as I was at the start of the season.
"But this season has been great for me and this year I can say I've been consistently doing well in all the games.”
The popular midfielder’s talents have been allowed to flourish with the support of a strong group of players, whom he sought to credit for his continued improvement on the training ground.
"I'm really happy to be here in Turin and I'm really happy to be playing with great players like Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon and Carlos Tevez.
"It's a great privilege playing with them. They have something within them that I learn from all the time. Andrea is amazing. He's one of the best in the world."
Originally a central midfielder, Asamoah’s move to Turin saw him immediately deployed as a left wing-back - a new position and a challenge he continues to embrace with open arms.
"The coach spoke to me once and wanted to try me on the left side and everything went well.
"It's really good for me because I've got two positions I can play and that's really going to help me.
"In the national team I also play sometimes from the right side going forward. As a player, if you're versatile it can be really useful."
