Roma's Tammy Abraham

Roma striker Tammy Abraham gave some insight to life in the Italian capital following his move to the club last summer.

The 24 year-old left his boyhood club Chelsea after the addition of Romelu Lukaku and joined the Giallorossi in a transfer worth over €40 million.

Since moving to the Italian capital, Abraham has flourished under manager José Mourinho. The striker has tallied 17 goals and 4 assists in 32 appearances in all competitions, becoming one of the team’s most pivotal figures.

“At first it takes a bit of getting used to,” Abraham told Pro Direct Soccer about his early days in Rome.

“But after a while you settle in, find a house and start to explore a bit and try different restaurants. I’m really enjoying Rome. Sometimes I get homesick, which is tough, but I’m here for a reason: to do a job.”

“I knew there’d be a point where I’d have to leave Chelsea and go out and explore. Now I’ve come to a different country and learning a different culture and language, I’m really enjoying it.”

He added, “I enjoy going out to eat to new restaurants. Since I’m in Italy I’d have to say my favorite cuisine is Italian…they weren’t lying about the food here!”

“I like learning about Rome, for instance I went the other day to the Colosseum, it’s been nice.”
