Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says the decision to leave out Kwadwo Asamoah is a precautionary measure, revealing their plan to slowly ease the Ghana midfielder into full-time action.

The coach of the league champions confirmed that the player felt a twinge which resulted in their decision to slowly reintegrate him into the starting line-up of the Old Lady.

The utility player was left of out Juventus' 3-1 victory over Fiorentina in their Serie A clash over the weekend which sparked reports that he has suffered an injured.

However, the Ghana international was quick to deny the report that he has suffered a fresh injury in an exclusive interview with Ghana's leading football news outfit ,

Allegri says the decision to leave out Asamoah is not because of injury but to ensure he regains his full fitness without any further complications.

"Asamoah feels a twinge in his knee after playing, so we'll look to ease him back gradually,' Allegri told a press conference.

Asamoah has so far played four matches since recovering from the injury that kept him out of action for more than one year.
