Mourinho rewards Roma youngster with gift after teenager secures vital win for the Giallorossi.

Jose Mourino certainly has his fair share of critics, and his sometimes combative style with colleagues and the press certainly doesn't help his case.

However, the self-described "Special One" has again shown that under that seemingly abrasive exterior is a thoughtful individual.

Last week, Roma, who've have had their share of struggles this season, avoided a third straight loss by beating Genoa.

It was a vital three points for the Giallorossi, who've lost five of their 12 games so far and are now looking to close the gap on the top four sides after tumbling down the standings.

The star on the night was a young striker named Felix Afena-Gyan. The Ghanaian youngster, who turned 18 at the beginning of the year, first arrived in the Eternal City this past March, when he moved from EurAfrica to the Giallorossi youth side.

He received his first senior call-up under Mourinho in October, and less than a month later, came off the bench to score two goals to fire Roma to a 2-0 win over Genoa.

According to reports, prior to the match, Mourinho had promised the youngsters he'd buy him a pair of pricey kicks should he score.

Well, clearly motivated by this, the teenage starlet scored not one, but two goals - and thus, as promised, received his prize from his very proud manager.

Here's the nice moment when Afena-Gyan gets his gift from Mourinho:
