The 28-year-old was at the receiving end of some scathing attack from Juventus fans after Lazio defeat on Saturday

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah started for Juventus in the 2-1 loss to Lazio in Saturday's Serie A encounter.

Asamoah deputized for Alex Sandro at left back with the South American returning late from international duty and featured throughout as Ciro Immobile netted a second-half brace for Lazio to cancel out Douglas Costa's opener.

This was the first time, since the opening day of the 2015/16 season, that Juventus lost a game at the Allianz Stadium.

The Ghanaian utility man was making his fourth appearance of the campaign for Massimiliano Allegri’s men and despite being one of the few standout performers for Juve in the defeat, Asamoah was on the receiving end of a social media attack from a few Juventus fans.

'How many times do you pass back the ball during a match? One or two hundred?' , wrote Andrea Barone  (@andybarone68) 

'Go to Turkey u piece of s**t', said - @fin0allafine 

Hendra Nucleo (@nuovonucleo) also wrote , 'Can you leave juventus @Asabob20 ? many thanks for your service.'

He was not alone in the attack though as Sami Khedira and Andrea Barzagli were also told join the former Black Stars men through the exit door in January.

'Hi @andreabarzagli2 @Asabob20 @SamiKhedira please leave us on January . Thank you', tweeted Hussein Faraj (@hussein_faraj)

Asamoah is being linked with a move away from the Turin side with Galatasaray said to be the possible destination.

Reports have also suggested that the club is preparing for life without him and they've already earmarked Atalanta's Leonardo Spinazzola as well as Paris Saint-Germain's Thomas Meunier as his possible replacements.

Juve are in action again on Wednesday as they will welcome Sporting and Asamoah is expected to return to the bench.
