Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said he understood striker Tammy Abraham‘s frustration over his lack of playing time last season and took some responsibility for it, as speculation grows over the England international’s future at the Premier League club.
British media have linked Abraham with a move to Serie A club AS Roma, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The 23-year-old ended last season as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer with 12 goals in all competitions but found himself marginalised at the London club since Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as the manager in January.
