Roma striker Tammy Abraham expressed his goal of winning the Europa League with Roma, which is the only European trophy he hasn’t won yet. However, he acknowledged that “everyone” feels the absence of Paulo Dybala when he is not on the pitch.
During Roma‘s media day at Trigoria on Thursday, the England international had the opportunity to speak to reporters ahead of the Europa League Final against Sevilla, which is scheduled to take place in six days.
“I am excited, we have a game on Saturday we have to prepare for. We want to win but we need to be confident for the Final,” said the Giallorossi star.
“We had the feeling of winning a trophy last season so we need to do this feeling again. It would be a dream to win, but to score and win would be extra special. This is an amazing club, it means everything to me and my team and the most important thing is the trophy.
“I think every trophy should be a motivation to everybody. Two years, two Finals is a dream,” Abraham continued.
“Nobody thought this would happen and now we’re here. We are so close but yet so far. In a final anything can happen, you can win and lose but the most important thing is that we leave everything on the pitch and we have no regrets. It’s another competition, I want to win, it’s the only [European trophy] left in my cabinet, it would be very important for me as well.”
Abraham praised Roma star Dybala
José Mourinho also spoke to the media on Thursday admitting Dybala is unlikely to be available against Sevilla although there’s still hope La Joya can play for 15 or 20 minutes in Budapest.
“Dybala is a special player, we knew when we signed him and he hasn’t let us down,” said Abraham.
“He’s showing his qualities. It’s unfortunate, he had a few injuries in the past. It’s always nice to play with him and we all miss him when he doesn’t play.”
Abraham is under contract at the Stadio Olimpico until June 2026, but there are rumours he’ll leave in the summer.
“I think in football there are always rumours. The media hear things before I hear things,” Abraham admitted.
“My main focus is the Final. God is in control of the future, whatever the future holds for me we’ll see. My main focus is to bring another trophy to this wonderful club.”
