AS Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has kept his promise to Felix Afena-Gyan following their match in Genoa.
The Special One assured the Ghanaian prodigy that he will purchase a new pair of boots if he scored against Genoa. Indeed, Afena-Gyan stepped off the bench and scored two goals in the game as Roma defeated Genoa in a home match, moving to fifth place in the Serie A league table.
Mourinho was open about the issue by declaring to reporters: “I had promised to purchase Felix his boots that he likes, but they are expensive. They cost €800, and he rushed over and said to me to remember! The next morning, the first thing I’ll do is purchase these boots.”
In a new video that shows the realization of his promise, Mourinho is seen handing the parcel to a tearful Afena-Gyan who accepted it with a smile on his face. After that, the 18-year-old Ghanaian professional footballer danced with joy.
