The Ghanaian wing-back was on the losing side for the first time this season, against his former employers

Kwadwo Asamoah came up against his former club, Juventus, at the San Siro on Sunday, but ended up on the losing side of a 2-1 defeat, which ruined the Nerazzurri's 100% start to the 2019-20 Serie A season.

 
Antonio Conte’s side had claimed league victories against Lecce, Cagliari, Udinese, AC Milan, Lazio and Sampdoria.
 
They were however brought to their knees with an early goal from Paulo Dybala and a late winner from Gonzalo Higuain, between Lautaro Martinez's equaliser from the penalty spot.
 
The result sees Inter drop to second spot, just a point behind the Bianconeri.
 
Asamoah made his sixth Serie A start this season, playing the entire match like he has done in previous outings.
 
He made three tackles, three clearances and one interception at left wing-back. The Ghana international also made 55 passes which was the third highest total in the Inter shirt, behind Marcelo Brozovic and Stefan de Vrij.
 
He played for Juventus between 2012 and 2018, racking up five goals and 21 assists in 156 competitive appearances, lifting the Serie A six times, as well as the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana (thrice each).
 
Inter will be seeking redemption from Sunday's defeat after the international break, when they travel to Sassuolo on October 20.
