Ghana Player of the Week: Kwadwo Asamoah - Juventus

Ghana Player of the Week
AGE 23
POSITION Midfielder
FOR Juventus
2-0 Chievo

Words cannot simply describe the way and manner Asamoah is making it at Juventus. The 23-year-old had another remarkable weekend after playing a huge role as the Old Lady beat Chievo 2-0 to stay on top. The midfielder constantly looked dangerous on the ball and produced excellent crosses one of which led to a goal. Now, the former Udinese playmaker is the usual source of assists for the Turin-based club and he is clearly distinguishing himself as the topmost Ghanaian performer abroad.

Congratulations to Asamoah,'s 4th Ghana Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mention

Andre Dede Ayew – Olympique Marseille

The 22-year-old had a great night on Thursday at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium after netting the equalizer for Olympic Marseille in their 2-2 draw with Fernabache.

Frank Acheampong – Black Satellites  

The 18-year-old Thailand-based forward was key to Ghana’s 4-1 victory over Morocco in the first leg of the last stage of the 2013 Africa Youth Championship qualifier. He came from the bench to net the last two goals which could give the Black Satellites the ticket to Algeria next year.

Asamoah Gyan - Al Ain

The striker bagged a double for Al Ain in the UAE pro league but his side was beaten 6-3 by Al Ahly Dubai. He still remains the source of goals for Al Ain.
