Nigerian born striker Tammy Abraham has revealed that he feels inspired by Harry Kane’s successes and aims to live up to that.
The 21-year-old who is on loan from Chelsea has become a game changer for Aston Villa, finding the back of the net on 21 occasions in the Championship.
“I’m a person who looks at myself and after every game I like to reflect on my performance, not just the team,” he said.
“You look at the Harry Kanes, although he’s absolutely ruthless inside the box, he also scores goals outside the box.
“Chances to win games won’t always come in the box, so that’s one thing I’ve got to work on, positioning myself outside the box and obviously taking shots. Top strikers like Kane, I’ve watched how he uses his body, positions himself, gets into the area.
“I’ve heard so many stories of players who have trained with Kane. The best players, they’re always the last ones off the pitch, always working on this, working on that, and they put that into games. It’s about following those footsteps and doing the same thing.”
Abraham spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Swansea City, scoring eight times in 39 appearances in all competitions.
