TAMMY ABRAHAM showed he is a true player for José Mourinho when he sped up time after faking an injury late in Roma’s Europa Conference League victory over Feyenoord.
The 24-year-old helped the Giallorossi win the inaugural trophy on Wednesday night with a difference-making first-half goal from Nicolo Zaniolo.
Roma were under intense pressure towards the end of the match from the Dutch team, who were throwing bodies forward in search of an equaliser.
And Abraham used his chance to lose valuable time at the Air Albania Stadium after a challenge from Marcos Senesi in the closing stages of the match.
Apparently injured, the former Chelsea ace went down grabbing his left leg, only for the cameras to catch him WINKING in the direction of the Special.
He then proceeded to waste a bit more time when he again exaggerated his punch.
His loss of time proved crucial in helping to stop Feyenoord’s momentum as Roma held on for victory.
It is the first time that Roma have won a European trophy, while it is their first silver piece in 14 years after their Coppa Italia success in 2008.
Fans loved Abraham’s cheeky wink on social media, as one user tweeted, “Tammy’s wink. Jose taught her well.”
Another joked: “AYO, Tammy Abraham winked at Jose Mourinho on live TV.”

A third added: “That little wink from Abraham, I’ve been learning the dark arts of football from Jose!”
Meanwhile, one limited himself to stating: “That wink from Abraham. Mourinho has taken away his soul.”
After the historic win, Arsenal target Abraham told BT Sport: “One thing I said when I came here was that I was going to help the team get to the final and one day I want to win a trophy.”
“In my first season I did it. Credit to my teammates, great performances. We’ve worked hard all year.”
“I love them (to the fans). From the first day I came here it has been the best.
“We are champions, I am happy to be part of the team, now it’s time to celebrate and enjoy”.
