Then what about Abraham. After Tammy Abraham was passed over for the World Cup, Jose Mourinho appears to have sent him a motivational note. Mourinho has launched another inquisitive attack, which is thought to be geared at the out-of-form Abraham, who has struggled to score goals this season, only days after Rick Karsdorp was dismissed from Roma’s squad for a lack of professionalism that, in Mourinho’s perspective, “betrayed his teammates.”
I’m old-fashioned, but I don’t think you need anyone’s help to become a professional football player in a world where millions and millions of kids dream of doing this, he remarked in Roma’s post-match press conference following their 1-1 draw with Torino. You can find motivation within yourself. Which is this? a source outside. A trainer and a psychotherapist.
Continuing Mourinho, You must always give your all on the field, in every practice, and in every game. Play well, play poorly, make mistakes—the mentality is something else entirely. Many youngsters, my friend, dream of being where you are, but very few actually do. These athletes have advantages. Since you are a male, that extra bit should serve as an external source of inspiration. Although mistakes happen in every game, the mindset is something else entirely. Do you require encouragement to earn your pay?
The latest outburst from Mourinho comes after he previously attacked Abraham for possibly becoming preoccupied with the prospect of being called up to represent England at the World Cup. After an outstanding initial season in the Eternal City, the striker has only scored four goals this season. Unfortunately, not the World Cup. The 25-year-old must instead buckle down in the brief off-season and reclaim the prolific form that made him such a valuable player last season.
