Bristol City boss Johnson quickly gained my trust - Chelsea starlet Abraham

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says Bristol City boss Lee Johnson was quick to gain the trust of the Abraham family.

The Robins were the recipients of the talented 18-year-old striker's services in the summer after agreeing a season-long loan with the Blues.

Abraham told the Daily Mail that a meeting with City's promising manager swiftly helped him make up his mind on a move to Ashton Gate.

“The gaffer got mine and my parents' trust from there," he said.

“It was more of a family decision. We sat at the kitchen table and he outlined what I could expect.

“He told me that it's a young side that can push for promotion and if I keep working hard I will get games."

Abraham has starred for the Robins early in this season-long stint, scoring 10 goals in 13 appearances.
