Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini praised both his teammate Tammy Abraham and manager Jose Mourinho in a recent interview with Four Four Two.
“Tammy was very courageous, at his age, having not always played at Chelsea but still doing well when he did, and after winning the Champions League, to leave and put himself to the test, to accept a new challenge,” said the Italian midfielder.
“I’ve always said that with the right application, work, commitment and mentality, he can become one of the best strikers in the world. Tammy has incredible potential. Last season he produced impressive numbers.”
“Besides being a great player, being with him in the dressing room is a pleasure – he’s vital for our group.”
On Mourinho, Pellegrini remarked, “He’s a coach who has written the history of football, transformed the sport and still does everything to continue winning – it’s something he instils in us every day,” Pellegrini said.
“He’s amazing. In the past year-and-a-half under Mourinho, I’ve had a new feeling. He manages to instil emotions inside you to release on the pitch.”
