Mourinho has saluted Abraham’s ‘ambition’ and described his £34m move to Roma from Chelsea as a real coup

Abraham touched down in Italy at the weekend to undergo his medical

and soon put pen to paper on a five-year deal at his new club.

His arrival saw Mourinho swoop for one of his former club’s players

and the boss admitted Abraham’s choice to leave the Premier League shows his character.

In an in-depth chat with Roma’s official website off the back of their pre-season campaign, Mourinho opened up on his new star striker.

‘Even he (Abraham) hadn’t joined, I still would’ve had a positive view of the owners and the general manager

given that they did everything possible to react to the departure of a top player like [Edin] Dzeko,‘ he said. ‘They’ve been fantastic.

‘As for Tammy, I prefer to say wait and see. I say that with total confidence. I’ve known him since he was a boy.

He’s never played for me because he was a 14, 15 and 16-year-old boy when I was at Chelsea, but I know him very well.

‘I know him as a player, a person and in terms of his mentality.

I know how he made the decision to leave the Premier League, which is always tough for an English player.

‘That tells me so much about him because when you leave the Premier League, you do so because you’re ambitious.

‘You leave because you want to get back into your national team, because you want to play at the World Cup

because you want success outside of England

where not that many English players have had brilliant careers.

‘He comes here with that ambition and we hope to see his best qualities as a player.

With Tammy, Eldor [Shomurodov] and Borja [Mayoral], we have attacking options that I’m very pleased about.

‘We don’t have the experience of players who are 30, 33 or 35.

‘We don’t have the experience that you might see at Juve with Cristiano, at Milan with [Olivier] Giroud and Zlatan

[at Atalanta] with [Luis] Muriel and [Duvan] Zapata, given they are all established and have a wealth of experience.

‘We don’t have that, but in terms of potential, I couldn’t be happier with the players that we have.’
