The 19-year old forward, who is currently on loan at an English Championship outfit believes he will be given a chance by the Blues boss when he returns from his loan deal
Tammy Abraham has revealed that Antonio Conte has promised to give him a chance when he returns to Chelsea.
The 19-year-old striker is currently on loan at Bristol City- scoring 13 goals from 26 appearances which won him the EFL Young Player of the Month of September, and he added that the advice gave him the confidence to give his all for his current club.
“Conte gives me that belief that when I go back to Chelsea, hopefully, he’ll give me the chance,” Abraham told the London Evening Standard.
“It’s very motivating for me to know you have that support and you have people who are aware of how well you are doing.
“It gives you confidence to go out there and give your 100 per cent.”
Abraham also stated that he is facing competition at the Ashton Gate Stadium outfit, but added that giving his best to the team has helped him subdue the situation.
“Wherever you go there is always going to be that competition. It’s about how you deal with it. When you give your best, you can’t ask for more.”
“Wherever you go you have to learn off players who you play with and who you are up against.”
“Diego Costa is a good example. He’s doing very well and he’s arguably one of the best strikers in the world so I have to see what he does and add it to my game.”
“It’s very challenging. You just have to adapt and you have to get used to playing game after game,” he explains.
“It’s about resting and what you do off the pitch that affects what you do on it. I just have to keep adapting. The experience has given me a new belief.”
“Playing at the top level in the Premier League — that’s where I strive to be.
“England Under-21s is just one step below the first team so I’m going to keep striving to be the best and hopefully I’ll get a call-up.”
Abraham joined Chelsea in 2004, but hit the lime light when he scored 74 goals in 98 games for his side's youth teams in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons.
