Felix Afena-Gyan’s agent Oliver Arthur has said the Roma teenager is similar to African football legend Samuel Eto’o.
Afena-Gyan, 18, was impressive on Sunday night scoring a brilliant brace as Roma secured a crucial 2-0 win over Genoa in Serie A.
The Ghanaian made had made his senior debut with the Giallorossi only one month earlier.
“Yesterday night [after the game] we retraced the path that led us here and he thanked me for my work,” the player’s agent told Tele Radio Stereo.
“Because of his physical structure, power and speed, Afena-Gyan looks like Eto’o, but we must tread carefully,” Arthur added.
Afena-Gyan was named in Ghana squad for World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa earlier this month, but he turned down the call-up.
Oliver said, “There were no problems, everything was slowed down by the bureaucratic difficulties related to the documents that Rome had to send to Ghana to keep the boy in Italy.
“Felix is happy with the call, but he doesn’t want it to be a one-off.
“He wants to train and grow to be part of the Ghana national team permanently.
“He is loved in Africa and everybody speaks about him. Everyone wants to interview him.”
