Milan’s Fikayo Tomori: “I told Abraham to come to Serie A.”

Andy Mattioli

Milan’s Fikayo Tomori was recently asked about the part he played in Tammy Abraham deciding to join Roma and move abroad for the first time in his career.

The Rossoneri centre-back, being a good friend of Abraham’s since their early days with Chelsea, suggested to the 24-year-old striker that Serie A could help him become the player he’d always wanted to be.

“When he said Roma was on the table, I said: ‘Bro this is a good league’,” recalled Tomori in an interview with The Guardian.

“I felt like it would develop his game a lot,” he continued. “He has scored a lot of goals this season for Roma, they’re fighting for a Champions League spot.”

“Definitely it’s helped him and definitely I gave him rave reviews about Serie A because I enjoyed myself so much the first six months.”
