AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho is set to honor a promise he made to Ghanaian teenager Felix Ohene-Afena Gyan.
The Portuguese manager revealed that he pledged to buy the Ghanaian striker costly shoes if he scores and he would do that following the brace against Genoa on Sunday night.
“I had promised to buy Felix the shoes he really likes, which are really expensive, they cost €800, so he ran over and told me not to forget! Tomorrow morning, the first thing I do is buy him the boots.”Mourinho stated.
Mourinho further hinted that the youngster will continue to be with the senior team and will not go back to the youth side.
“I am sorry for Mister De Rossi and the Primavera squad, but Felix will stay us. The Primavera work close to us, so Felix and another four or five players have come across to the senior squad.”
“You get these kids who think they know everything, but he is humble and you can sense he just absorbs all this information from everyone around him. That’s fantastic,”
“What impressed me the most was his cool head in front of goal. If he is not in terms of technique fantastic, he does have a strong mentality.” He added.
