At 24, Abraham is close to equaling the best goals record in a season (26 for Aston Villa) and is comfortable in Rome under the leadership of “uncle” Mourinho.
Tammy Abraham was one of Roma’s summer signings and the Chelsea striker is having a remarkable season, with 23 goals and four assists in 40 games. And being coached by Jose Mourinho can be a motivating factor given the England international’s admiration for the manager.
In an interview with American television CBS, the spearhead admitted that he is still dazzled when he sees Special One. “I still consider him an idol. I never told him that, but every time I see him I’m fascinated, even though I see him every day. When he was at Chelsea I was there too, but I was still a kid, so I kinda knew what he looked like. Now that we’re both here, I call him my uncle from Rome,” Abraham said.
