Football Today – Abraham Credits Mourinho for Making Him a Monster
Tammy Abraham, a forward with Italian Serie A club Roma, has discussed training under Jose Mourinho, his Portuguese club manager.
“I think one of the things he said was I was too much of a nice guy and that I have to show that aggressiveness as I’m getting older as a striker,” Abraham said, as per Sky Sports.
“You need that character, you need the presence to frighten defenders and I think that’s something I’m learning and getting better at.
“It’s always tough – moving and going to experience a different country and culture. I felt the sooner I settled in the better, and started learning different types of football and different styles.
“I’ve gone to spread my wings and hopefully I can keep up the level of performances I need to stay in the team.
“Of course (the World Cup) was in the back of my mind but really I just wanted to play football.”
