Chelsea supporters on social media had to wipe a tear from their eye after Tammy Abraham’s touching antics ahead of Roma’s game yesterday.
Abraham was caught mouthing the words of Roma’s pre-match anthem before their Serie A tie against Udinese.
It was a poignant moment for the young striker, showing how swiftly he has settled into his noisy surroundings.
Immersed in the culture of the club and city, the centre-forward looks comfortable in his new colours.
Although many wished Abraham had been singing to the Stamford Bridge choir, Chelsea fans were simply happy to see one of their own loving life across the continent.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
Clearly, Abraham used the Stadio Olimpico’s chorus as inspiration for his performance last night.
He converted the only goal of the game, a very clever, close-range finish with the outside of his boot.
That was enough to ensure Jose Mourinho’s side claimed all three points and continued their hunt for Serie A glory.
Roma have now won four of their five top-flight games, scoring 12 times in the process.
It’s a terrific start by all accounts, spurred on by the summer arrival of Abraham.
The 23-year-old has three goals and two assists in seven appearances for I Giallorossi since leaving Chelsea last month.
Everything that was going wrong in south west London is going right in the Italian capital.
Still wearing the no.9 but actually being treated like one, the Englishmen is earning the appreciation of his new coach and fanbase.
