José Mourinho is a man of action. The star coach of AS Roma has promised his 18-year-old protégé Felix Afena-Gyan his favorite shoes if he scores twice in the game against Genoa. However, it was about 800 euros expensive sneakers from the luxury brand Balenciaga.
The young Ghanaian, who is already considered the new Samuel Eto’o in his home country, has kept his end of the bargain. On Sunday he scored both goals in AS Roma’s 2-0 away win in Genoa. The second came just a few seconds before the final whistle.
“I promised Felix that I would buy him his favorite shoes when he scores. So I had to buy them now, ”said Mourinho after the game. The Portuguese had no choice but to hand over the shoes to the striker on Tuesday – Afena-Gyan hugged his coach with joy. The young footballer captured the moment on Instagram.
