“Over the last few years, we’ve seen some of our young British talents going into Europe to play and get regular game time.

“It was obviously difficult for him at Chelsea to play as much as he wanted to, but he had the courage to go away go into a different culture, a different life, and a different style of football and he’s shown up very, very well.” He concluded.

Tammy Abraham described Mourinho as one of the best coaches in the planet.

“José is for me one of the best coaches to walk on the planet, he knows how to really drive you. This is what I needed. I needed someone who could push me and really drive me. He always wants more. For me and the players he is the perfect manager.

“For me it was all about someone believing in me. Frank Lampard gave me a chance, he believed in me, showed real faith in me, and that’s when I was producing.

“It is the same with the coach now. When you have belief from the manager, it makes you want to do the best you can. It is all about confidence really. Coming off the back of a difficult season at Chelsea where I wasn’t really playing games to coming here and shining again, it’s like a dream come true.” Tammy Abraham concluded.
