AS Roma striker, Tammy Abraham, has said that the club’s manager, Jose Mourinho, turned him into a ‘monster’ and a more aggressive player.

Abraham left Chelsea to join Roma in the summer transfer window.

The England international has so far scored five goals for the Serie A side this season.

When asked what Mourinho had taught him at Roma so far, Abraham said at his post-match press conference following England’s World Cup qualifier’s 5-0 win over Albania at Wembley: “Just be a monster really!

“I think one of the things he said was I was too much of a nice player and that you have to show that aggressiveness as you’re getting older as a striker.

“It’s not always about being nice on the pitch. You need that character, you need that 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 different 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 performance 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. For me, it’s still a young career and I just felt I needed to go out and play some games to improve and hit the highest levels and hopefully, I can keep striving on.”
