PROMISE KEEPER: Mourinho delivers €800 Balenciaga shoes to Afena-Gyan

AS Roma coach, Jose Mourinho has made good on his promise of new shoes to Ghana youngster Felix Afena-Gyan.

The 18-year-old was the hero as Roma beat Genoa 2-0 in the Italian Serie A Sunday night.

Afena-Gyan was thrown into the game with 15 minutes remaining and proceeded to break the deadlock just seven minutes after coming on, before bagging his second in stoppage time.

Afena-Gyan ran to celebrate with Mourinho after scoring his first goal in professional football.

Mourinho revealed in his post-match interview that he was now going to buy Afena-Gyan a pair of shoes he desperately wanted.

‘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 DAZN.

Fast-forward late Monday afternoon, Afena-Gyan posted a video of Mourinho following through with his promise after buying him a pair of Balenciaga shoes.

Felix Afena-Gyan is the first player born in 2003 to score a goal in the Italian Serie A.
