Abraham and Tomori send messages to Ugbo ater he leaves Chelsea

Tomori and Abraham both send two word-messages to 22-year-old after he left Chelsea this week

Ike Ugbo left Chelsea on a permanent basis this week to join Belgian club Genk, which prompted messages on Instagram from ex-Blues duo Fikyao Tomori and Tammy Abraham.

Ugbo, who signed for the Blues at Under-10s level, has come all the way through the academy system at Cobham in recent years. 

The 22-year-old forward failed to make a first-team appearance, but has spent several years out on loan from Stamford Bridge experiencing senior football across Europe. He scored 17 goals in 34 games last season across all competitions for Belgian side Cercle Brugge. 

Ugbo posted a message on Instagram on Tuesday after his transfer to Genk was confirmed by them.

Ex-Chelsea duo Tomori and Abraham were among those to reply to him:

Ugbo another Chelsea academy talent to leave

Ubgo is another to walk through the exit doors permanently at Chelsea this summer and it’s a chance to become a key player with Genk.

Tomori, 23, is a commanding centre-half that ended up joining AC Milan on a permanent basis after a loan last year. He looks enough to break into the England XI further down the line, so it’s going to be difficult for Blues fans to watch him.

Meanwhile 23-year-old striker Abraham has decided to make the switch to Roma and he’s started well with two assists on debut. He’s another Englishman that is looking to become a key player in Italian footballer, too.

Ugbo looks like he’s a decent goalscorer, but his path into the Chelsea first team is significantly impressed.
