Roma Coach Mourinho Names Ghana’s Felix Afena-Gyan In Squad For Napoli Clash
Ghanaian youngster Felix Afena Gyan has gained the confidence from AS Roma coach José Mourinho as he has included the striker in his squad to play against the high-flying Napoli on Sunday.
Roma will enter this game off the heels of a humiliating defeat 6-1 against Norweigean team Bodo/Glimit during the Europa Conference League.
This defeat has caused Mourinho to sack a few first team players and replace them by youngsters, including Felix Afena-Gyan.
Afena-Gyan is in great good form during the U19 League, and was recognized with a first-team match day experience.
In the break between international matches, Afena Gyan was invited to take part in training with the first team. Mourinho was able to witness first-hand the extraordinary potential the 18-year-old has.
He may be on his place on the bench in the crucial Serie A meeting, which Roma have to win in order to appease their faithful, who were shocked by the performance of Thursday.
Afena Gyan is the leading scoring player on the Campionato Primavera 1 with six goals. He scored a brace in two consecutive matches this month.
