Roma praises PAOK for raising awareness about missing children when unveiling new player

PAOK Chuba Akpom

Through social media, Roma acknowledged PAOK for the unusual way they presented the return of London-born forward Chuba Akpom.

Attached to their welcoming back of Akpom, there was a clear message of support for raising awareness on missing children.

Jose Mourinho's team, Roma, said on social media that "the more we all do to raise awareness, the better the chances become of a missing child being returned to their loved ones."


The 25-year-old striker returned to Toumba from English Championship side Middlesborough.

He joined Boro from the Greek Super League club 12 months ago and made an immediate impact, scoring twice in his first two games.

The English striker has now returned to the Greek club where he enjoyed the most successful period of his career so far, netting 18 goals in 79 appearances and playing a central role in PAOK’s first league title success for 34 years.

The former Arsenal youngster was also a cup winner in Greece.
