Tammy Abraham says the appointment of Antonio Conte bodes well for his Chelsea future as he continues to impress on loan at Bristol City.
The teenage striker has won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award for August and September, after smashing 11 goals in 16 games so far this season and has helped fire the Robins into the Championship play-off spots.
Conte has not personally been in touch with Abraham since he moved out on loan, but believes the Italian has shown he is willing to give youngsters a chance to impress and is ready to make an impact at the Blues.
“I think with the new manager coming in the chances are there because we can see he’s been playing youngsters,” Abraham told Sky Sports.
“It’s a case of when you get the opportunity you have to impress and give your all. Everyone has their time and hopefully my time will come soon.”
One man who is in regular contact, though, is skipper John Terry who is seemingly keeping a close eye on the striker’s development.
“Yeah [Terry] still gets in touch,” he added. “I think he keeps up with the games and how well I’m doing then he gets back to me to say congratulations, just little things like that which obviously is a good thing for me and it gives me confidence knowing people [at Chelsea] are aware of me.”
