Former Ghana winger, Laryea Kingston has advised countryman and former teammate, Kwadwo Asamoah to depart Inter Milan and move to a club where he can play his traditional number ten position.
Kwadwo Asamoah since joining Inter Milan from Juventus in 2018 has struggled to nail a starting berth under Antonio Conte with recurring injuries.
Laryea believes Asamoah has a lot to still offer the game if he finds a club, he can play week in week out in the number ten position.
The versatile 31-year-old Ghanaian has been converted to a left fullback or a wingback in his time at Juventus before moving to Inter Milan.
“For me, I think he still has years ahead of him. So far, he’s done very well for himself but he still has some years in him if he makes up his mind,” Kingston told Goal.
“My only problem is he’s not playing regular football now. That’s my only worry. But if he finds himself a club where he can play week in week out, trust me he still possesses a lot of qualities.
“He plays wing-back or left full-back but sometimes he goes up and you can see he has the eye for assists and sometimes he can also strike.
“It would be good for him to move to a team where he would be able to play in his comfortable position – No.10 or around the box. He can be great and get to the peak that he wants to be.”
The former Heart of Midlothian F.C. winger who played with Asamoah at the 2008 AFCON tournament held in Ghana further explained that, when you go to a club and you’re taken out of your traditional position it requires professionalism.
“For me, I think Kwadwo Asamoah is a No.10 player, behind the striker because that was where I saw him play from the beginning and he did very well.
“Even when he was with Udinese, he was playing in that position and was doing very well. But sometimes, as a player, if you go to a team and a coach puts you in another position, you have to be a little bit professional.
“No.10 is where he feels comfortable and when you ask him today, he will say the same thing.”
Kwadwo Asamoah has been a subject of speculation for the entirety of this season. He featured only 8 times for Antonio Conte’s side and has been linked to Turkish clubs Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.
