José Mourinho kept his promise and bought the shoes of the two-goal scorer in the 2-0 win against Genoa – Felix Afena Ohene-Gyan.
The Portuguese coach is watching the players in Primavera closely. Among them, not so long ago, the aforementioned talented striker caught his eye due to regularly scored goals. Therefore, he decided to invite him to the first team training, then took him to the match and allowed him to debut at the Serie A level.
The 18-year-old had two appearances before Sunday’s clash with Genoa, but his third match in Roma will be remembered the most, thanks to the first goals scored and … the promise made by José Mourinho.
The guardian of “Giallorossich” sent the Ghańczyk into battle for the last quarter of an hour of the duel with “Rossoblu” and just before his entry onto the field he undertook to buy him his dream shoes worth 800 euros if he scored a goal.
Felix Afen Ohene-Gyan needed only seven minutes to complete his task, so immediately after scoring a goal, he ran to the coach not only to enjoy his debut hit for Roma, but also to remind him of his promise.
The Portuguese did not intend to be a liar in this situation and the next day he bought the previously indicated shoes and officially handed them over to the hero of the team from Stadio Olimpico, who entered the list of shooters twice in the match with Genoa.
