Mourinho blasts rumour mongers targeting Afena-Gyan over teammates’ injury

AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho says those who started a rumour that Felix Afena-Gyan is responsible for teammate Gini Wijnaldum’s broken leg are “scum”.

Netherlands midfielder Wijnaldum fractured a tibia during training with the Serie A giants on Sunday.

The 31-year-old faces months out and looks unlikely to be fit for this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.

After suggestions emerged that Afena-Gyan, the 19-year-old Ghanaian striker was responsible for the training ground accident, Roma boss Mourinho took to Instagram to set the record straight.

The Portuguese posted an image to his 2.9million followers of himself holding up a Roma shirt emblazoned with a ‘Forza Gini’ message of support for Wijnaldum.

And he wrote: “Sometimes football can be s**t. In only 2 weeks, Gini became one of us because of his human qualities (his football qualities we already knew).

“Sadly, in a very unfortunate accident he had a bad injury that will keep him away from playing for a long time.

“But it’s not just football to be s**t sometimes, people can also be…

“Those who initiated the rumours that a top kid like Felix could be responsible for what happened are real scum.

“Let’s all be together tonight: we play for @officialasroma, for @gwijnaldum and for @ohenegyanfelix9.”

Wijnaldum had only joined Roma on loan from Paris Saint-Germain 17 days before suffering the setback.
