I am a naturalized Italian, but I’m from Ghana. I was abandoned by my parents when I was childe and adopted by two angels. I suffer with racism everyday. I am the first black to wear Italian shirt. I’m not angry, but my life experiences make me act differently from other people. Then, try to learn more about me before you criticize me. I feel Italian, only Italian, i love Italy and I will play only with Italian shirt.
