How Felix Afena-Gyan’s red card got Jose Mourinho screaming from the touchline

    Jose Mourinho, on Monday, December 13, was angry when Roma forward, Felix Afena-Gyan, was shown a red during the game between AS Roma and Spezia Calcio.

    The 18-year-old was dismissed for what was deemed an intentional handball at the edge of the box.

    Felix Afena-Gyan thought he’d scored from a shot to give his side a 3-0 advantage over their opponent but it turned out the referee on the day had to show the player a second yellow card which meant his side needed to continue the game with a man down.

    ‘Unhappy’ Mourinho, after seeing his ‘darling boy’ shown the exit screamed from the touchline before escorting the player down the tunnel.

    In a post-match interview, Jose Mourinho did not comment on Afena-Gyan’s dismissal, however, he criticised the team’s performance despite a 2-0 win over Spezia.

    “I like the result, not the game,” he told reporters. “It was not a difficult match, starting from the first half, we gave away and lost a lot of easy balls.
