Tammy Abraham: I Have No Regret Leaving Chelsea For AS Roma

England international says switch from EPL to Serie A remains the best decision of his career

Tammy Abraham says his decision to leave Chelsea for Roma has been the best of his career as the move has made him grow as both a player and person.

The 24 year old scored 30 goals and bagged 12 assists in 82 games for Chelsea across all competitions before he decided to leave west London after he became surplus to requirements at the club.

“If you’d told me a couple of years ago I’d be playing in Italy, I wouldn’t have believed you. Leaving Chelsea was difficult, it’s where I’d grown up from the age of seven,” he told the Daily Mail.

“I didn’t know much about Italian football but it has helped me develop as a player and as a man. I’ve come out of my comfort zone and don’t have any regrets. I love the life and it’s brought out another side to my game.

“At Chelsea, I was viewed purely as a goalscorer. Here, I’ve learned different aspects of the game. If our opponents have more of the ball, I know how to position myself defensively. You have to be more clinical finishing chances because they can be limited.”
