in search of more playing time.

Abraham, who scored 4 goals in his first 10 appearances for the Giallorossi, has now talked about the reasons behind his move to Serie A and his experience under the Portuguese boss

José Mourinho

.

"Why Italy? Good question. I had different options. So many clubs I was speaking to at the time. Italy came and I spoke to Jose. He had a goal,”

the 24-year-old said.

"I could see where he wanted Roma to go and see where he wants to take them and I wanted to be part of the process. He really put his trust in me so he was a big impact on the reason why I chose Roma."

He added:

"The first thing he said to me was when I picked up the phone he was like 'do you want to enjoy some sun or stay in the rain?' I laughed.

"I think at first I did not think much of it when we were speaking. I think my mindset was that I wanted to be in the Premier League and I wanted to stay here.

"I feel like it was home, being around London, being around England. It was home. And I think I had to open my wings a bit and make a choice and I chose Italy and would not change it.

"I have learned so much tactically - as much as I have in my entire lifetime. It is good. You need to learn off different managers. Right now I am learning a lot."
