Afena-Gyan: Ghanaian taken out by Covid-19 as Roma visits Bologna

Ghanaian attacker Felix Afena-Gyan has tested positive for Covid-19 and will consequently sit out Roma’s Serie A encounter with Bologna on Wednesday.

The Yellow and Reds have announced the development on their official website on Tuesday.

It will be the third straight time the 18-year-old will play no part on the pitch for Roma since scoring a sensational double against Genoa earlier this month.

“The club can confirm that, following the latest round of molecular testing involving the first-team squad, forward Felix Afena-Gyan has returned a positive test for Covid-19,” Roma’s statement reads.

“The relevant health authorities have immediately been informed.

“The player, who has been vaccinated, is doing fine and has now begun isolating at home.”

Shortly after the club release, Afena-Gyan took to social media, saying, “Tomorrow I’ll be supporting my teammates from in front of the TV. Waiting to test negative and to return to training.”
