Kwadwo Asamoah Juventus
The Serie A champions have nothing but eulogy for the Ghanaian whose career with the side has come to an end

Italian giants Juventus have paid tribute to midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah following the Ghana international's transfer to Serie A rivals Inter Milan on Monday.

After six years at the Allianz Stadium, the 29-year-old crosses carpets to Stadio Giuseppe Meazza having struggled for playing time in the past few seasons with the Old Lady. 

He leaves Juve after declining a renewal following the expiration of his contract last month.

"Everyone at Juventus salutes Kwadwo Asamoah as he officially leaves Juventus," the thirty-four-time league champions wrote on the official website.                         

"Six years, six scudettos and four Coppa Italias. What an extraordinary, trophy-filled time it was for Kwadwo Asamoah as a Bianconero as he officially departs the club.

"A literally tireless worker with remarkable tactical versatility, Asa played 149 matches in all competitions (the second-most among current Juventus midfielders behind Claudio Marchisio), while providing 5 goals and 16 assists.

"A mainstay of the Juventus left side, the numbers tell quite a tale. Asamoah has played over 8,000 passes in almost 12,000 minutes in Bianconero creating 150 scoring opportunities and 288 crosses.

"However, it's trophies that truly matter, and Asamoah will forever have his fair share with six league titles, three Super Cups and four Coppa Italias. Also, in 2013 he was nominated for Ghanaian player of the year."

Asamoah joined Juve from Udinese in 2012.

"Year after year, Asa has proven to be an unmovable and invaluable piece of the #MY7H-ical squad and everyone at Juventus thanks Asa for his many dedicated years of service to the club wishing him all the best in the future," the eulogy went on. 

"Grazie mille, Asa!"

Asamoah is set to stay with the Nerazzurri for the next three years.
