Tammy Abraham opens up and sends fans to Chelsea about his start this season
Tammy Abraham has opened up and admitted that he had to believe he was the man in order to be a success at Chelsea.
With the club unable to sign any players during last summer’s transfer window, it meant that boss Frank Lampard had to recall a number Abraham to add another striker to the side.
And he has repaid the faith as a return of 19 goal contributions (15 goals and four assists) in 33 appearances has vindicated all concerned, especially those who believed that he was not good enough to be the clubs number nine
Now, the 22-year-old has admitted that he has kept working and forced himself to believe that he has the ability to lead this side this season: ‘In my head, I knew that if I didn’t score then it could be my last starting chance gone,’he told the club website
‘When I scored, the emotions just got to me. I ran over to the manager and I was thinking “I’ve just scored my first goal for Chelsea!”
‘That’s when the confidence started to come back. I scored the winner in that game as well so from there the confidence came back gradually. The Chelsea fans started to believe in me and I could kick on.
‘As a striker, you need to believe in yourself and have that confidence. Being Chelsea’s number nine, you’ve got big boots to fill so I need to believe that I’m the man, that I can score and do well for the team. You need that feeling going into every game.’
Fans will be hoping Abraham still has that feel-good factor when the Premier League resumes next month, especially as Lampard will be seeking to get back inside the top four this season.
He has been brilliant and we are glad that he has managed to prove himself[the_ad id=”164″]
