Asamoah delight at Juve move

The Ghanaian will become just the second player from his homeland

to play for the club, following in the footsteps of Stephen Appiah.

He moved to Italy in 2008 when he enjoyed a loan spell at Torino

before joining Udinese. But now he feels he has achieved his dream.

He told skysports.com: “It’s the best thing in my life, because

Juventus are a very big club, who won the championship last year.

“I have seen many of their games and I am very happy to be here. “I

can’t wait to wear the famous jersey on my body, it is a childhood

dream which has become a reality.” The 23-year-old is also excited

about lining up alongside Andreas Pirlo in the Juventus midfield.

“He is still the best for me,” Asamoah added, “because he always

plays well. “He gives the tempo to the game, only the pair of

Barcelona midfielders, Xavi and Iniesta can get close to him as a

pair. “He has so much experience, but never changes and for me he

is the most important player.”
