Kwadwo Asamoah makes history in Italian soccer.
Kwadwo Asamoah signs a new exploit for an African player in Italy. Indeed, the Ghanaian midfielder has become, since last weekend, the continent's most capped player in the history of Serie A with 271 games.
Asamoah thus beats the record of his compatriot Sulley Ali Muntari. The latter was at 270 games of Serie A. Asamoah's 13 minutes played in his debut with Cagliari were enough for him to enter the "Hall of Fame."
13 consecutive years in Italy
Kwadwo Asamoah, 32, has only known Italy and Serie A after a short stay in Switzerland. In 2008, he first stepped foot in Italy. Coming from Bellinzona, he signed with Udinese. He stayed there for 5 years, playing 134 matches (9 goals), before experiencing a turning point in his career.
Asamoah is then recruited by Juventus of Turin. He settled permanently with the Bianconeri. The Ghanaian defensive midfielder, converted left back, played 6 seasons with Juve. After 156 games and 5 goals scored, he left the Piedmontese club to sign for another big team, Inter Milan where he played just two seasons 2018/2019 (42 matches) and 2019/2020 (11 matches).
The story then continues in Serie A, 13 years after his first match in Italy.
