Tammy Abraham is now officially a Roma player, having completed a permanent move to the Serie A club a couple of days ago.
And just like at Chelsea, Tammy has chosen to wear the No.9 jersey at Roma.
After his shirt number was revealed, Tammy told the media (via Goal.com): “I had the same thing at Chelsea. I dealt with the bad luck of the No.9 shirt and proved a lot of people wrong. I can’t wait to get started.”
Moreover, the striker is not entirely wrong – before him, the No.9 was with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Radamel Falcao, whose spells at Chelsea were forgotten the day they left.
With 30 goals in the last 2 seasons, Tammy did wear the #9 with pride, to say the least. We wish him all the best for his Roma career now and hope he can do well there
