Jose Mourinho has stated that he wants to build a monster out of Tammy Abraham for the England national team. Mourinho told Tammy to play for Nigeria if England keeps ignoring him.
The 23-year-old striker joined Roma from Champions League winners Chelsea and has scored two goals in five matches for Roma and the Portuguese coach is keeping faith in the Englishman.
England coach Gareth Southgate snubbed him for Euro 2020 and is yet to recall the former Aston Villa man for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. And Mourinho believes the England-born-Nigerian should be given more international caps after just making three appearances with the Three Lions.

“I am trying to create a monster of a forward for Gareth Southgate,” the Roma boss said ahead of their trip to Hellas Verona on Sunday in Serie A, heading into the match top of the table after winning all three of their league games. “Unless he doesn’t have proper eyes and still not call him up with the England national team, then I would suggest for Tammy to switch countries. “He deserves more caps under his name.”
