Tammy Abraham encouraged to work harder by Swansea boss


Swansea City boss Paul clement has encouraged the Nigeria-born England junior international Tammy Abraham to work hard if he must realise his potentials.

Abraham netted 26 goals for championship side Bristol City in all competitions last season but has found the back of the net only once in the Premier League this season for the Swans.

On-Chelsea striker Abraham has started every game this season for the Welsh club, scoring also in the Carabao Cup win at MK Dons.

“What he has shown is that at every level he has scored goals but this is a new level,” said Clement.

“It is a big jump, he has gone from youth football, to under-23s and then to the Championship and done very well along the way.

“But this is the big step, isn’t it? You’re talking about playing against some of the best players in the world.

“He has confidence and a desire to improve, he is in a good place and he will contribute for us this season,” Clement told the club’s website.

The 19-year-old who has played for England at every Junior level, is routed to represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria in future, with Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick having spoken of his desire to see Abraham play for the Super Eagles.
