Chelsea striker Abraham admits Bristol City loan intimidating

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham admits he was intimidated during his first loan spell at Bristol City.

Abraham is shining for Aston Villa on-loan this season.

And he said, “I remember my first feeling going into it. I was scared. I'm going up against men!

“So many times my mum was crying for me. There was one against Cardiff , it was Sol Bamba. I just touched the ball and he came straight through me. I said 'Whoa!', I was not used to those kinds of tackles. I was trying to pin him and all sorts, but he was so strong.

"I just remember saying, 'Listen, I'm going to have to go to the gym or something, I can't hold him off'."
