Tammy Abraham Roma fan in hot exchange over defeat

It was a case of ‘Tammy can I have your shirt’ to ‘keep your shirt’ as Tammy Abraham and a Roma fan had a cross fire after their 6-1 defeat in the Europa on Thursday night.

The Roma squad went over to apologise and try to appease the 400 angry supporters who had made the journey to Norway from Italy.

And one of those fans appeared to vent directly at England striker Abraham, who came on in the 60th minute of the match with his side 3-1 down.

Abraham only joined Roma in the summer in a £34million deal from Chelsea and the 24-year-old has been a popular addition in Italy. He has scored four times in 12 matches so far this season.

Difficult night for Roma

Prior to kick-off on Thursday, one Roma fan was pictured holding up a sign written in English saying ‘Tammy, can I have your shirt?’.

But after a 6-1 humbling in blustery and cold conditions in Norway, Abraham and his Roma team-mates were left to feel the fury of their fans.

Roma were only 2-1 down at half-time, with Carles Perez’s goal offering hope of a second half turnaround. But Jose Mourinho’s men crumbled in the second half, conceding four goals.

They would have found no solace in the words of their Mourinho after the final whistle, either.

‘The responsibility is mine,’ he said. ‘I lined up players who played less, I decided to make these changes and rest many players.
