Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed has expressed concerns over the constant injuries of countryman Kwadwo Asamoah.
Asamoah is having a nerve-wracking career having suffered several setbacks in recent times.
The 27-year-old recently recovered from an injury and made the bench in Juventus 3-2 win over Carpi last Saturday.
The midfielder had initially been sidelined for more than eight months after undergoing a knee surgery in December last year.
Rabiu Mohammed is, however, worried about Asamoah’s constant setbacks.
“Kwadwo Asamoah’s injuries are very disturbing. He is one of the greatest footballers I’ve played with since our time with Liberty Professional. Whenever he is injured is a big worry to us,” Rabiu told Kumasi-based radio station Angel FM.
“I used to communicate with him, but whenever we are chatting, I get saddened and devastated because of the injuries that he normally faces. I’ve been facing same problems and I know how it feels to be injured,” he explained.
“Kwadwo Asamoah is a very nice and decent person in life. His play and lifestyle on and off the pitch are very good as well. His exceptional talent is magnificent and awesome.”
The former Udinese midfielder has not been able to feature for the Black Stars team for almost a year missing the team’s 2015 Africa Cu of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
The former Liberty Professionals man has been a key member of the Black Stars team since 2008 and has represented the country in two FIFA World Cups (2010 and 2014) and four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments (2008,2010,2012,2013).
