Transfer window: Tuchel at Chelsea a career low point, says Roma striker Abraham

Roma striker, Tammy Abraham, has said he struggled with the management of Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea last season.

Despite the team’s Champions League success under Tuchel, the German’s appointment was a turning point in Abraham’s career with his boyhood club – whom he left last summer for Roma.

“I was the (joint) highest scorer in the FA Cup (with four goals) and to be told I wasn’t in the squad for the final, you can only imagine how I felt,” he told The Athletic.

“It wasn’t a nice feeling. But I was there to support the boys. I would always do that – good times and bad times – and the same with the Champions League. I just wanted my team to do well and win.

“I’ll admit it was a very low point in my career. It did mess with me mentally for a bit. It got to a point towards the back end of the season where I was stropping, I was annoyed, because I’m working hard in training and I wasn’t getting the chances. I was doing the best I could, getting in early and finishing late, training drills, finishing drills, and still wasn’t getting a look in.

“I could understand if I wasn’t in great form or wasn’t training well or had a bad attitude. I just didn’t understand. I was working so hard. I was having players coming up to me saying, ‘You were unbelievable today in training’. That was the hardest part.”
