Abraham lifts Roma to the Conference League final as the former Chelsea player continues to thrive under Mourinho

Former Chelsea star Tammy Abraham led AS Roma to the UEFA Champions League Final to continue his recent success under Jose Mourinho in Italy.

Roma greeted Leicester City at the Olympic Stadium in the second leg of the semi-final on Thursday evening, with the aggregate score tied 1-1 after the first leg at King Power Stadium.

Mourinho’s side took the match after just 11 minutes through Abraham, who climbed to the top to head home from a corner kick, and then maintained their lead in a professional manner to secure a place in the impressive event.

The season of Abraham’s star debut continues in Rome

Roma spent 34 million pounds ($42 million) to sign Abraham from Chelsea in August last year, which has since proven a bargain as the England international quickly adapted to life abroad.

Abraham’s goal against Leicester was his ninth in the Conference League and his 25th of the season in all competitions, a number he reached in 49 games.

Mourinho played a key role in bringing out the best in the 24-year-old and was rewarded when he became the first coach in history to reach a European final with four different clubs.
