The current situation of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham at Stamford Bridge is worrying and not even he can do anything about it. From spending the previous season on loan at Aston Villa where he scored a lot of goals to finally getting a chance to play for bus boyhood club, everything seemed to be working out fine for the England international star. However, he would not have known that his career was going to have a huge twist later in the season.
The manager that brought him into the team, Frank Lampard, could not save his coaching career at Stamford Bridge and eventually got the sack after he failed to turn things around at the club. His departure would then have a direct effect on Abraham’s future after the appointment of a new manager.
Lampard used to play a system that would accommodate both Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner, a summer signing from RB Leipzig, and even though everyone thought the two stars would click and perform well enough to score a lot of goals, it just did not happen that way. After Lampard’s exit, Thomas Tuchel was appointed.
The arrival of the German manager was going to have a negative impact on Abraham’s Chelsea career and things have not been good for the striker since then. From being the club’s best performer and top scorer pre-Tuchel, he is now only a bench player and hardly gets opportunities to play football games for the club.
The striker was subbed on around the 87th minute of Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Real Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final clash at the Stamford Bridge, further fueling rumors that he could leave this summer. The club’s former striker, Didier Drogba has said that he feels sorry for the English star and wishes he was playing more games.
