Abraham: I Said No To Clubs Because Chelsea Told Me I Would Play

Tammy Abraham has claimed that he snubbed a lot of teams before linking up with Aston Villa on loan because Chelsea had assured him he would see regular game time this season.

Abraham who impressed with Chelsea during pre-season joined Aston Villa on loan on the deadline day for Football League deals after failing to break into the Blues’ first team.

He had returned to Chelsea over the summer after impressing with Swansea last season but with the likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud ahead of him, Abraham had to look for opportunities elsewhere.

“It started off from the end of last season where Chelsea did say I’d be involved in their team and squad,” Abraham told Villa’s official website.

“That’s the reason why I said no to a lot of teams that came from abroad and the Premier League as well, but towards the end, I found that I need to play games and need to play football, and looking at a team like Aston Villa, who I believe should be in the Premier League, it’s a great chance for me to come out and showcase myself here.

“It’s a situation where I want to be, in a team where I believe strongly in the team and just be in a good environment enjoying myself again.

“Hopefully that can be this place and I can take them to the Premier League.”

    The problem with this guy is No better person to advice him. Someone that is close to Victor Moses……If it happened to be a Patriotic Super Eagles player now, he would have advised this young guy to play for Nigeria so as to place his Club career on a high track but then he happened to have fallen into the wrong hand i would rather say. O boy, U go play for Championship tire.
