According to the former Al Ain player, he nearly kicked Luiz Suarez when he had a close encounter during an English Premier League match between his former team Sunderland and Liverpool.

 

In his narration on Peace FM, Asamoah recounted that during a match between Sunderkand and Liverpool, the away were shaking hands with the Sunderland player and the look he gave Suarez was from the fact that he stalled their progress in the 2010 World Cup tournament.
