Kwadwo Asamoah will pass Juventus test – Udinese’s Agyemang-Badu

The midfielder is optimistic the play-maker will pull off surprises at Turin as the new season approaches and the Italian Serie A champions hope to retain the title
Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu believes his former Udinese and Black Stars team-mate Kwadwo Asamoah will meet the expectations at Juventus.

Asamoah joined the Turin club last month after a successful spell with the Bianconeri .

The 23-year-old’s transfer was a major subject of conjecture after he was linked with not only the Old Lady, but AC Milan, Inter Milan and Manchester United.

The Zebras are hoping the creative force of the Black Stars will add a lot of quality to their play as they seek to defend the Italian Serie A title and also make an attempt to seal a third Uefa Champions League crown.

Agyemang-Badu believes his fellow Ghanaian will live up to the billing at Turin.

“I like people who like challenges and I think Asamoah will surely jump over any hurdle at Juve,” the 21-year-old told Accra-based Radio XYZ.

“He has been in Italy for a while and he is very talented, so I think he will pass the test at the Turin-based club.”
