'How's he doing?': Jody Morris suggests Chelsea sold a genuinely 'top player' last summer

Jody Morris let his thoughts be known about Tammy Abraham via an energetic social media post.

Taking to Twitter, the former Chelsea coach wanted to remind everyone of how well Abraham has been doing since exchanging one capital city for another.

What has Abraham been up to?

Despite interest from British shores, the 24-year-old decided to test himself by joining Jose Mourinho’s Roma last summer.

He cut ties with the club he joined at the age of seven, having been cast aside by Thomas Tuchel.

Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

The search for a new striker – which eventually landed at the feet of Romelu Lukaku – was the final nail in the coffin for Abraham.

Mourinho opened his arms and welcomed the centre-forward with a warm embrace.

Since the pair’s link up for a second time, the relationship has rarely left the honeymoon phase.

Especially not for the England international, who continues to prove what an able attacker he really is.

Goals galore

Abraham bagged a brace last weekend in the 4-2 win away to Empoli.

This moved his Serie A tally for the term up to 10, which, according to the Daily Star, is the most an Englishman has ever managed in a single season since three points per win were introduced to the competition.

His record across all competitions stands at 17, comfortably the highest figure of any player from Europe’s top five leagues with the same nationality.

A statistic that Morris was keen to point out whilst praising Abraham, a former pupil of his at Cobham.

Striker saga

Whilst the Roma number nine maintains his excellent return in front of goal, another with identical numerals is struggling to keep pace.

Lukaku’s return to Chelsea has been far from the glitz and glam, red carpet rollout that many expected.

After a blistering start to life in blue again, the Belgian’s eye for goal became blotched.

He has eight for the campaign, managing just two in his last 13 Premier League appearances.

Would Chelsea fans trade in Lukaku for Abraham right now? We’ll let you answer that one…
