Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has hailed striker, Tammy Abraham following his impressive form at the start of this season.
He also disclosed that Abraham learnt from him in training during his time at Stamford Bridge.
Abraham has scored seven goals in five Premier League games at the beginning of the campaign, but Drogba believes the 21-year-old took inspiration from senior players, adding that he was not surprised with Abraham’s great form this term.
“Yeah, I’ve known him [Abraham] since he’s been like this,” Drogba was quoted by Sky Sport as saying.
“These are kids we used to see, they used to come and watch us training, and I believe they learned a little bit of our skills, how we read the game.
“So, you know, we’re not surprised because I also trained with them when I used to train with the reserve team.
“It was always a moment for me to give away some skills, some knowledge, and they learnt really fast, really quick.
“So once again, I’m not surprised with what I’ve seen [with Abraham].”
Drogba added: “I think he (Lampard) is focusing on Chelsea and it happens that he needs to work on young players, to give them a chance.
