Ghana international Felix Afena-Gyan will stay at AS Roma ahead of the new season, Footballghana.com can report.
The Black Stars striker was linked with a move away from the Giallorossi this summer due to lack of playing time.
But it is said Roma have decided to keep the Ghanaian attacker ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Reacting to his stay, Afena-Gyan indicated he still have a lot to learn under Jose Mourinho whom he sees as a father.
” I’m still young, I still have many years of career ahead, I still have a lot to learn, especially from the coach. it’s not a problem for me, I’m sure my time will come and I’ll have to take the opportunity. Mourinho? For me he’s like a father and parents have to be obeyed. Dybala? Surely it’s a great pleasure for me to share the locker room with a big player like Dybala, it’s a pleasure to be able to talk to him and train with him”.
The 18-year-old burst onto the scene after making his AS Roma senior debut in a game against Cagliari in November. He followed up with a man of the match display, after netting a brace against Genoa.
The young striker scored two goals in 17 Serie A appearances last season and won the UEFA Conference League title with AS Roma.
Afena-Gyan made his Black Stars debut in the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs against Nigeria at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
He scored his first-ever Ghana goal last week in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Madagascar.
