Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho personally addressed the circumstances of Gini Wijnaldum’s injury in training via an Instagram post where he condemned the people aiming abuse at Felix Afena-Gyan after earlier speculations were made regarding his involvement in Wijnaldum’s fractured tibia.

“Sometimes football can be shit. 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 shit 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 Gini and for Felix.”
