The Injury Woes of Tammy Abraham – What Next for Roma’s Striker?
Roma striker Tammy Abraham’s fate this season came to an unfortunate end as he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the team’s final game against Spezia. The incident happened when he was jostling with his former Chelsea teammate Ethan Ampadu, and had to be taken off on a buggy.
As per the latest update from the club, there is no timeline for his return and it is likely that he will be out for an indefinite period. It puts into question what happens next both for him personally and also Roma as they look ahead towards next season.
Abramahm in Rome
This season saw Tammy Abraham score eight goals in thirty-eight Serie A appearances, which makes it even more disappointing that he has been struck by injury at such a crucial time. There were already rumors about his departure from Roma this summer, with several Premier League clubs interested in securing his services including Everton, Aston Villa and Chelsea.
However, given that recovery should now become Abramham’s primary focus after surgery or therapy if necessary; any potential move back to England might have to wait until January transfer window or beyond depending on how quickly he can recover.
Roma Without their Star Man
Tammy Abraham may not have been at peak performance during his first stint with AS Roma but losing him due to injury just before heading into Europa League competition cannot be understated. The Englishman was seen as one of Mourinho’s key players last year having worked together at Stamford Bridge prior. With hopes high amongst I Giallorossi fans following their recent qualification through to Europe’s second-tier competition for next season, much will now depend on how well the team can adapt without their top scorer.
The Road Ahead
It remains unclear when Abraham will return and whether he would be able to regain his full fitness in time for a potential move back to England.
For Roma, they may have to find alternative options upfront while hoping that Tammy’s recovery goes according to plan. Fans of the Italian side will hope that someone within their ranks can step up and fill the void left by Abraham as they look forward towards a potentially challenging Europa League campaign. As such, it is set to be an interesting few months ahead with questions regarding Tammy’s injury and future still unanswered.
