Black footballer of “Roma” said that he was not offended by the phrase about bananas

MOSCOW, 23 Nov. Black footballer of “Roma” Felix Afena-Gyan called a joke phrase about bananas, said by an employee of the Roman club in his address. On Sunday, “Roma” defeated “Genoa” in the 13th round of the Italian championship with a score of 2: 0. Afena-Gyan became the author of the double. After the game, the head coach of the Roman club, Jose Mourinho, said that he promised the 18-year-old striker from Ghana to give shoes for 800 euros if he does well on the field. Mourinho fulfilled his promise and brought Afena-Ghian sneakers. The footballer posted a video about this on his Instagram page. However, while unpacking the gift, the phrase “there are bananas” is heard in the background, said by one person from Mourinho's entourage. Social media users outraged these words, calling it racism. Afena-Gyan removed the video and posted an edited version, where this unfortunate joke has already been cut out. But then the attacker still posted an explanation of the situation, noting that he did not consider the words spoken to be racism. “I read a lot of comments on the video, but I want to assure you that I am not offended by these words that you heard, they are not racist. when I arrived at “Roma”, everyone accepted me well. The guys joked about me like in a family. The reason? I eat a lot of bananas, we sometimes joke about it. That's why you heard this comment. In “Roma” I feel at home since I arrived. I think that people misunderstood what was said on the video, “wrote Afena-Gyan. Afena-Gyan switched to the Roma system in the summer. This season, he took part in three Serie A matches, in which he scored two goals.
