AS Roma whizzkid Felix Afena-Gyan: ‘I had the feeling that if I got one minute, I would score’

Lo and behold, he scored two goals including a stupendous strike from distance which ensured Jose Mourinho’s men wrapped up a 2-0 win at the o Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

”It’s very difficult to describe my feelings. Tonight, I have great feelings,” Afena-Gyan said in his post match interview

”And I will say big thanks to God Almighty for what he has done for me tonight.

”I was having the feelings if I get one minute, I will score for my club and God being so good I made it tonight so I’ll say thanks to everyone for the support.

”I dedicate this goals to my club, the supporters, my family, my mom. Mum, you have been there for me since. Mum thank you very much for how far you have brought me. I thank very much I really appreciate you [mum].

Afena-Gyan also heaped praise on his coach Jose Mourinho for bring the best out of him.

”He’s a great person. He is teaching me a lot and I’m learning a lot from him. He’s someone who has achieved a lot in his career,” he added.

He’s a good person, and I’m glad working with him. He encourages me day-in-day-out to do what will help me to improve in future.

”So I’m happy working with Jose Mourinho, he’s a great person.  I thank him very, very, much. I thank him a lot.”
