Normally Jose Mourinho is the last manager who you would associate with grooming the latest best young player in the world. I got to tell you this season he is really making me eat my words despite a topsy turvy season thus far for Roma. He has given youngsters Kumbulla of Albania and Ibanez of Brazil a chance to shine in the Giallorossi shirt and they have been decent. One youngsters who takes the cake is Ghanaian Felix Afena-Gyan who has punched above his weight this season since making his debut in October. The 18 year old was at his best on Sunday night against Genoa in a match Jose really needed to win after losing before the international break in Venice. His second goal takes this week’s play of the week. The first goal wasn’t bad in terms of good team goals but the solo effort in injury time was even better. Watch where he picks up the ball, he has only one option upfront for the pass with four defenders covering. His pace reminds me a lot of George Weah, he has that burst of pace able to go from zero miles per hour to 10 in a second. He beats one defender with that pace and unleashes a thunderbolt a meter or so from the edge of the box that nestles in the top corner, giving the keeper zero chance. What a way to score your first goals at senior level. Afena is one to watch in Serie A in the coming two years and I wouldn’t rule out Qatar 2022 either. Sorry South Africa.
