AS Roma's charismatic manager Jose Mourinho has behaved in full character after revealing a special story about Ghana's Felix Afena-Gyan.
The 18-year-old Afena-Gyan had the best night of his career on Sunday, thanks to a late brace that helped Roma beat Genoa 2-0.
The speedy attacker was introduced in the final 15 minutes of the game with the score locked at 0-0. After seven minutes on the pitch, Afena-Gyan struck his first goal in professional football, before hitting a dramatic winner in stoppage time with a storming shot from distance.
The Ghanaian youngster's celebration saw him going to Mourinho to share a quick message. The Portguese manager later revealed what Afena-Gyan had said to him during the dream moment.
“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 football-italia.
The former Inter Milan boss concluded the chat by revealing the qualities he loves in the West African star.
“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.
“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.”
Additionally, Afena-Gyan was also available to show love to his manager after the game.
“Mourinho is a great person, a great manager and a great coach. He gives you the motivation to learn every day. I am very happy he is here," per football-italia.
“Tonight is a dream come true. It was my first goal, I was hoping for a very long time. I want to continue my performance, prove myself and do more in future.”
Meanwhile, Roma's next job is another three points mission against Torino at home this coming Sunday in Serie A.
