One of Ghana’s top players is gradually recovering from persistent injury blows but there have been concerns that he could suffer a fresh relapse due to burn out ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations which is just weeks away.
Some Black Stars supporters have suggested that Kwadwo Asamoah be used with precaution by his club Juventus to keep him in good form for the African football showpiece in Gabon.
And after playing all 90 minutes on Sunday against Pescara, Goal launched a poll asking whether playing another full game in his side’s Uefa Champions League clash with Sevilla would be beneficial for the Black Stars, with the Afcon in mind.
Most of our respondents believe it would have no consequences and even want the midfielder to start and finish the game.
In fact, 73% of voters want Asamoah to feature against the Spanish team on Tuesday, while 27% are against, wishing he could be preserved to some extent for fear of sustaining another injury which could rule him out of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Black Stars have endured a poor run of results recently, failing to claim a win in their last five games.
Asamoah’s arriving for the Gabon 2017 strong and fresh would be good news for Ghanaians, who are beginning to settle with the gloomy fate that the team might not qualify for the 2018 World Cup after they picked just one point from two qualifying games.
