Jody Morris backed Tammy Abraham to succeed at Roma as Romelu Lukaku did at Inter Milan before his Chelsea homecoming.

Shortly after Abraham’s move to the Italian capital was confirmed, Morris posted his reaction and thoughts onto Twitter.

Chelsea’s former assistance coach felt the centre-forward had made the right decision going abroad, in order to help grow his global status and skill set.

Not to mention learning two other languages; Italian and the footballing dialect of Jose Mourinho.

Morris even made reference to those who have left Stamford Bridge and become better players.

One of those being Lukaku, the man who virtually signalled the end of Abraham’s career with the Blues.

The Belgian left Chelsea in 2014 after hardly kicking a ball for the first team.

Stints at West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Manchester United eventually led him to Inter.

In Serie A, he rediscovered his spark and reinstated himself as one of the world’s most feared no.9s.

Which is part of the reason Roman Abramovich wanted him back under his wing to pretty much replace Abraham up front.

Morris also made reference to Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah, two of the Premier League’s most talented individuals, who both started their English legacies at Chelsea.

If Abraham can rival any of the three global stars, then the sky really is the limit.
