Tammy Abraham gives interview in fluent Italian just a year after joining AS Roma

AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham has impressed fans by speaking fluent Italian just 12 months after moving to Serie A.

Abraham signed for the Giallorossi from Chelsea in a £34 million switch and had a prolific first season in Italian football.

The England international hit 27 goals in 53 games in all competitions as Jose Mourinho's side won the Europa Conference League.

He looks perfectly at home in the Italian capital and Abraham has quickly picked up the language. After Roma drew 1-1-0 with Juventus in a game he scored in, the 24-year-old did an interview with the club's official channels.

But instead of doing it in his first language, Abraham did it in Italian and didn't miss a beat.


It's an amazing effort from Abraham, who has taken himself out of his comfort zone by going to a new country and immersing himself into the culture.

Abraham has replicated the feat achieved by his long-time Chelsea teammate Fikayo Tomori, who he came through the ranks with.

Tomori joined AC Milan on loan initially before completing a £24 million switch. And as well as being hailed for his defensive displays which earned the Rossoneri a first Scudetto for 11 years, he was commended for effortlessly speaking Italian in interviews.


After a first video emerged in March, he shared the clip on social media with the caption, "Not perfect yet... but I'm trying."

A couple months later and Tomori's Italian had improved considerably when he analysed a 1-0 win over Fiorentina for DAZN.

Former England international Shaun Wright-Phillips praised Tomori's actions, writing: "Big respect @fikayotomori. Not only have you been outstanding on the pitch this season in a new country, but you’ve taken time out to learn the language and respected culture."
