Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham: My two big idols growing up

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham admits he grew up a big fan of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Henry has just been appointed as the head coach of Montreal Impact.

Abraham told chelseafc.com: "He was one of my biggest idols growing up.

"I loved his style, the way he played and the way he carried himself on the pitch.

"I even loved his goal celebrations! They were really cool and he's just someone I've always looked up to."

Abraham admits he also admires Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.

He added: "He's hardworking and so professional. He looks like a nice guy, even though I've never actually met him myself, and he looks like the sort of person that just wants to win, which is a mentality I have."
