AS Roma manager José Mourinho has announced that Ghanaian teenager Felix Afena-Gyan isn’t returning to the club’s youth team.
The 18-year-old has played in as well out of the first squad, however, after his performance against Genoa on Sunday, the Portuguese has decided to make the youngster stay on the senior side.
Coach Mourinho would like to keep the teenager sensation in the first-team.
“I am sorry for Mister De Rossi and the Primavera squad, but Felix will stay with us. The Primavera work close to us, so Felix and another four or five players have come across to the senior squad,” said Mourinho.
“You get these kids now 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.”
Felix Afena Gyan scored two goals against Genoa, his first goal for his senior side.
