Tammy Abraham takes full responsibility for the ‘naivety shown’ by his action of breaching the public health measures in the UK.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was pictured celebrating his birthday with friends and family in attendance at his party.

Among a gathering of 20 or so people, compatriots Jadon Sancho and Ben Chilwell were also present at the newly-turned 23-year old’s mansion in London on Saturday.

The England international’s actions go against the country’s new ‘rule of six’ – forbidding the gathering of more than six people in a bid to prevent the spread of the coronavirus – laid out by prime minister Boris Johnson.

A fine of £10,000 could be imposed on the former Bristol City, Swansea City, and Aston Villa loanee.

Abraham claims that he did not have any prior knowledge of the party, suggesting that he did not have a hand in planning the event, but takes responsibility for his actions nevertheless.

“I arrived home to find a small surprise gathering,” Abraham told The Sun.

“Though I was totally unaware this was planned, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for the naivety shown for the organization and attending of this gathering. 

“All I can do now is learn from it, apologize to everyone and ensure it never happens again.”
