AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho has fulfiled his promise to Ghanaian youngster Felix Afena-Gyan.
This comes after the former Chelsea manager promised to buy the Roma starlet a new pair of ‘really expensive’ boots after a debut brace, while he lied to the media about his tactical plans against Genoa.
The Giallorossi were struggling badly to create genuine scoring opportunities at a rain-drenched Stadio Luigi Ferraris, until 18-year-old Felix Afena-Gyan came off the bench and made all the difference.
The teenager was making only his third Serie A appearance when he scored both goals for the 2-0 victory, an angled drive and sensational curler into the far top corner.
“I had promised to buy Felix the boots 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 told DAZN after the game on Monday night.
