The month of November was bittersweet for all associated with Juventus.
It did not start well with the Old Lady picking up their first league defeat, to Inter Milan, since May 15, 2011 and ended with another defeat to AC Milan Nov. 25.
However, and most importantly, it did include a number of superb results.
They bounced back from the Inter loss with the easy 4-0 hammering of Nordsjælland in the Champions League, a 6-1 away win at Pescara, a 0-0 draw with Lazio and a stunning 3-0 Champions League win over Chelsea—the reigning champions.
As with all wins and losses, they are shared equally amongst the team but in November one Juve player really stood out from among their star-studded lineup.
Kwadwo Asamoah played every single minute in each of Juve's November matches with his sterling reputation rising on each and every occasion.
The Ghanaian international midfielder is as combative as they come and covers every inch of the pitch like a midfielder of old. He compliments these physical skills with a simplistic passing style and direct dribbling style that aids his team when dictating the tempo of matches.
The 23-year-old helped run the show against Chelsea Nov. 20 and on the back of both his and Juve's superb performance they are now seen as real Champions League contenders and a growing power within the game.
Much of that is down to Asamoah's dynamic performances.
