Asamoah will be forced to miss the game against Chievo this weekend. The Ghanaian, in fact, has already received five yellow cards in the league in just 14 games and for his career in Italy, this is a record.

Since his first year with Udinese (2008-2009), the defender has reached five yellow cards only once: at Juventus in 2013-2014 season when the fifth card arrived on the 27th matchday, almost at the end of the season.

Here is the statistic:

  • 2008-09 – 20 appearances – 1 yellow card (Udinese)

  • 2009-10 – 25 appearances – 2 yellow cards (Udinese)

  • 2010-11 – 38 appearances – 3 yellow cards (Udinese)

  • 2011-12 – 31 appearances – 3 yellow cards (Juventus)

  • 2012-13 – 27 appearances – 1 yellow card (Juventus)

  • 2013-14 – 34 appearances – 6 yellow card (Juventus)

  • 2014-15 – 7 appearances – 2 yellow cards (Juventus)

  • 2015-16 – 11 appearances – 1 yellow card (Juventus)

  • 2016-17 – 18 appearances – 2 yellow cards (Juventus)

  • 2017-18 – 19 appearances – 4 yellow cards (Juventus)

  • 2018-19 – 14 appearances – 5 yellow cards (Inter) *

*Season in progress

Well, Asamoah is not playing for Juventus anymore so he is obviously not on the good side of the referees, meaning yellow cards are going to stack up a little bit faster.
