Fiorentina troubled Juventus, admits Asamoah

The Ghana international was overjoyed after his goal extended the Bianconeri's lead over Fiorentina to 14 points
Kwadwo Asamoah has conceded that Fiorentina made life difficult for Juventus after the Serie A leaders ran out 1-0 winners on Sunday.

The Ghana international played a key role in the win by scoring the only goal of the game shortly before the break as the Bianconeri moved 14 points clear of second-placed Roma, who play Napoli on Sunday night.

"It wasn’t easy to play against a top side like Fiorentina, so I’m pleased with the result," the midfielder told the official Juventus website.

"We gained three important points here."

The 25-year-old then went on to reflect on his goal and admitted that he did not expect his right-footed strike to go in.

"The boss often tells me, ‘Try cutting inside’. I’m giving it a go all the time at the moment and today it went well.

"I’ve never scored a right-footed goal before, let alone one as good as that."

Asamoah has netted twice in 24 Serie A appearances so far this term.
