Tammy Abraham explains why Italian defence will make him a better striker

Tammy Abraham has a knack for goalscoring and has scored everywhere he has been at, from the Championship, to the Premier League and now the Italian league.

Defence in Italy are known for being watertight, and it’s a fact Tammy Abraham has experienced first hand.

However, the 23-year-old striker believes that playing in Italy against these strong defences will help his game.

The former Blues number 9 said: “Growing up, playing against Italian teams, especially in the national teams when I was younger, that is one thing I learned, that it is very hard to break down Italian teams. So that was one thing I was ready for, one thing I expected.

“This is a learning curve for me, this is a challenge. I am still young. Many players have come to this league and not been successful, as you said. But for me it’s a learning curve and it’s about working out the weakness of the defenders, and then using my strengths against them. So it’s something I am learning every day.

“It will take time. But it is something I am learning. I am not someone to back down from a challenge, so I’m excited. I think there are many good things to come.”
