AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has given Ghana’s youngster Felix Afena-Gyan motivation that should change his entire career.

After making his first two appearances for Roma at age 18 this season, Felix Afena-Gyan achieved another big dream by getting a call-up to represent the Black Stars of Ghana.

Mourinho has since revealed why he is a big fan of the young player.

“He is a player who is not registered for the Conference League. But he is a player with qualities that we don’t really have in the squad. He’s a player who looks for opportunities that we don’t often try to exploit,” Mourinho told the media, as per Goal.

“We have a lot of players who want the ball at the feet; we don’t have many who look for the spaces to run into. I like him because of how he tries to run into space and how he works out on the pitch. How he presses. He’s aggressive in the spaces.

“He is a long, long way from being the finished product – a long way from being a complete player and a long way from being the perfect player to start for a team like Roma. But he is a player that deserves to be worked with and deserves a chance to play.

“It’s good for him that he is training with us, just as it is good for other players,” the Portuguese manager concluded.
