    Roma whizkid Afena Gyan plays down alleged racist remark

    AS Roma youngster, Felix Afena Gyan, has brushed aside an alleged racist remark made during a heart warming video with Jose Mourinho.

    Mourinho promised to buy the 18-year-old a new set of boots if he scores a goal in the Serie A. Gyan delivered on that part, scoring twice in a 2-0 win over Genoa.

    In the video, ‘there are bananas inside’ was heard being said by an unknown person but Gyan played it down as a joke.

    “I have been reading a lot of comments about the video I published earlier today of a special moment for me with the coach,” he said on Instagram.

    “I want to assure you all that I was not offended by the background comment made in the video in any way — and that I truly believe there was no racist intent. “Since the first day I arrived at the club I have been welcomed into the family by everyone, who have joked with me like they do all members of the family.

    “Because they see that I eat bananas a lot that has become a thing we laugh about sometimes — and I believe the comment was another example of that.”
