Kwadowo Asamoah Eyes Uefa Champions League Glory With Juventus

Posted On Wednesday, 31st July 2013



Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah wants to win next season’s UEFA Champions League with the Italian champions.

The Ghana international hopes the Bianconeri will go one better than last season’s quarter-final berth where they were eliminated by winners Bayern Munich.

Asamoah wants to join the list of Ghanaian players- Abedi Pele, Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien, Ibrahim Tanko and Samuel Osei Kuffour-who have won the prestigious club competition.

The versatile midfielder believes the club’s new signings and hardwork in the pre-season will prepare them for the task ahead.

“I think with everything that we’ve done this off-season, adding new players, increasing our training methods, our expectations are very high,” Asamoah told Goal in a phone interview.

“We want to be the top team in the championship of Italy again and we want to do better in the Champions League. I think that’s our main objective this season.”

Asamoah made 27 appearances and scored two goals as Juventus successfully defended their Serie A title last season.
