AS Roma’s coach, Jose Mourinho has hailed his English striker, Tammy Abraham following the Serie A leaders victory against newcomers, Monza at the Stadio Olimpico.
Former Juventus forward, Paulo Dybala opened the scoring for Mourinho’s men to register his 100th Serie A goal. It was the Argentine’s night as he scored his first two goals since he joined Roma.
Tammy Abraham was involved in Dybala’s first goal of the night. It was his original flick-on that allowed Dybala to break through on the halfway line in the 18th minutes.
“Tonight he was my Tammy. He won everything, he held the ball up, he provided an outlet in behind.
“We always talk about strikers when they score and obviously tonight was Paulo’s night, but Tammy was amazing.” Mourinho said.
Mourinho had criticised the 24-year-old forward for saying he played well against Juventus three days ago.
Tammy scored the equaliser to earn Roma a point, who had won their opening two games in Serie A before the draw with Juve. It was the first time Roma earned a point against Juventus since the 2019/2020 season.
“I’ve already seen Abraham in the interview, he made it sound like he played a great game but he was horrible,” Mourinho said.
“Dybala played well, Cristante did a great job to leave a more central route open for Paulo. It was enough for us to step into the box in the second half and there was the feeling of fear of their fans.”
