The Roma forward is confident he will be in good shape for Roma’s Serie A trip to AC Milan on January 6.
Seen cautiously exiting the Stadio Olimpico, Abraham told fans after the game: âThe ankle is fine, it hurts a bit. I will be there for Milan though. Merry Christmas and Forza Roma. ‘
Abraham’s claims appeared to be confirmed by Jose Mourinho who, while worried, doesn’t think the injury is too serious.
“I only saw blood, nothing more,” said the Roma manager. âHe couldn’t walk, in the second half we risked a bit because we lost a replacement. I don’t think it’s serious, but he’s definitely not doing well.
Abraham is having a great first season in the Italian capital since arriving from Chelsea this summer. The 24-year-old is the club’s top scorer in all competitions with 12 goals in 25 appearances.
Roma are currently in sixth place in Serie A, six points behind Atalanta who sit last in the Champions League.
