Mourinho defends Afena-Gyan after media accused Ghanaian of injuring Wijnaldum

Jose Mourinho has jumped to the defence of AS Roma striker Felix Afena-Gyan who was accused by the media of injuring Georginio Wijnaldum.

The 31-year-old Dutch midfielder joined the Giallorossi earlier this month on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, and Mourinho’s Giallorossi fans couldn’t wait to watch him play. Things have unfortunately taken a turn for the worst and Wijnaldum’s broken leg will likely keep him out of action until after the World Cup in Qatar.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed today that a training-related collision between Wijnaldum and Afena-Gyan, resulted in the broken leg.

Mourinho addressed Wijnaldum’s injury on his Instagram page and exonerated Afena-Gyan of any wrongdoing.

“Sometimes football can be sh*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 sh*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 Roma, for Wijnaldum and for Afena-Gyan.”
