'At first I didn't think much of it when we were speaking. My mindset was that I wanted to be in the Premier League. I felt like it was home, being around London, being around England. But when he speaks, you listen. He is a good man and has helped me a lot so far and hopefully we can build on it.' Abraham further said that he had different options but he spoke to Jose and he had a goal.

'I had different options. But I spoke to Jose and he had a goal, I could see where he wanted Roma to go and I wanted to be part of the process.He really put his trust in me, so he was a big reason why I chose Roma.' The former Aston Villa player clearly revealed that he chose to sign for Roma because of Jose Mourinho. From his responces to the interview, it is clear that Mourinho convinced Tammy Abraham. He decided to be a first option striker for Roma instead of being a 3rd choice option at Chelsea. This was because of his phone call by Jose Mourinho.
