Asamoah’s return will provide the reigning champions with a vital midfield option as they seek to push up the table following an indifferent introduction to their Serie A campaign.
And the 26-year-old says he is confident he and his team-mates have what it takes to make up ground on the division’s early front-runners, starting with next Sunday’s mouthwatering encounter against Inter at the San Siro.
“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.
There are plenty of teams doing well at the moment, not just Inter. We just need to focus on ourselves and doing well.”
Time away from the action has given Asamoah the opportunity to study the team’s performances from afar and he says he is particularly impressed with the early contributions of Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado.
According to the Ghanaian, the South American duo, combined with familiar faces Alvaro Morata and Paul Pogba, will prove themselves to be increasingly instrumental as the 2015/16 season unfolds.
“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.”
