Hellas Verona shot-stopper Lorenzo Montipò was complimentary of Roma’s Tammy Abraham as his side prepares to face the Giallorossi tomorrow evening.

Verona travel to the Italian capital to face-off against José Mourinho’s men and hope to build on last weekend’s 4-0 dismantling of Udinese.

“Obviously I’ve been analysing Abraham–he’s very dangerous because he’s very physical yet at the same time very technical,” Montipò told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He’s already scored a lot of goals and it’s only his first season in Italy.”

He added, “Playing against him is a great opportunity for me, I consider it a challenge.”

Since his move to Roma last summer, the Englishman has emerged as one of the premier performers this season, obtaining 18 goals and 4 assists in all competitions.
