Cristian Romero presented as Tottenham Hotspur player


Cristian Romero has officially signed with Tottenham and has been presented as a player.

Romero is now in the Premier League. After weeks of speculation, the 23 year old Argentina Copa America winner joins from Atalanta.

Cuti will wear the number four shirt at the club where he will be playing alongside fellow Copa America winner with Argentina, Gio Lo Celso. Named as the best defender last season in Serie A, Tottenham posted a video of Romero presenting himself.

Here is what Tottenham posted as they announced Romero.


The Argentine joins on a reported 55 million dollar transfer.


  1. I just watched highlights of the Olympic final. Both two teams played horrible. Route to the final is shorter than WC, Batista would have fielded a much stronger squad, this is an easy Olympics to win.

    2004 and 2008 our squads were too strong!

  2. There you go:

    BREAKING: Inter Milan is heading towards Liquidation. The plan is to sell every player who receives a bid. Selling Lukaku isn’t the end: Lautaro Martinez, Barella, De Vrij. No-one can be certain of wearing the Inter shirt next season.

    (Source: @Corriere)

    Serie A is done

  3. Lukaku to Chelsea confirmed.

    Man these serie A teams are broke. They sell all their best players. Donnarumma, Romero, Lukaku. Then soon J. Correa, Tomiyasu, etc.
    No wonder why Lautaro wants out before things get worse there. Surprise CR7 still staying there.

  4. People stop calling league one farmer league PSg make it to the final one times an one two the semi finals once the lost because of bad luck and lyonnais want on the semi finals and Lille win the season last year and the trophees des champions last week they been buying wounderful players league one will be the one to wash mark my word

  5. Look at the extra speed Malcom offers for Brazil to win the gold medal in the extra time..
    This is what I m talking about, we need some speedy wingers to steal a winner in the later part of the game if we face such scenarios..

  6. PSG argentine dream team…GK—Sorin-Heinze-Pochettino—Di Maria-Lo Celso-Paredes-Pastore -Lavezzi—Icardi-Messi…supersub and coach Marcello Gallardo. Did i forget somebody from the last 15-20 years?

  7. Messi starting Europian club career with jersey number 19 and ending it also with jersey number 19.CLASSIC.

  8. As long as Messi is happy, PSG is fine. So he is going to get 700k euros per week and he will use 19 number in PSG.
    Neymar offered his number 10 but going by the reports, Messi rejected the offer politely.

  9. I hope messi complete his move to psg and win uefa champions league for psg and proved haters.
    F**k fcb I will never forgot how they treat juan roman riquelme, javier saviola and juan pablo sorin they were thier prem at that time , Literally disrespected them. Fcb were always favour dutch and Brazilian players, contrary Real Madrid used be home of Argentinians before Florentino Pérez.

    • in my eyes PSG is the easy choice for Messi. safe mode. i don t blame him. in his age he doesn t have to prove anything to anybody so why not. Just i will like to see him play in Italy (Inter or Napoli ). Or we can sell Monumental and bring him play in River 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • youre right, he doesn’t have anything to prove.

        Ligue 1 is incredibly physical, maybe even more so that Premier league. i do like that Messi is surrounded by amazing attackers so he’ll get more rest prior to world cup. We need Messi rested and on fire for Dec 18th, 2022.

      • Yes, we all know he likes River. He came so close to being ours! We will gladly send our 10 carrascal as a “present” to Europe to make room. We weren’t too bad in Independiente and Banfield’s stadiums, we can do it again 🙂

  10. In big matches Donnarumma—Kimpembe-Marquinhos-Ramos—Di Maria-Paredes-Verratti-Hakimi—Neymar-Mbappe-Messi….this will be the final solution 3-5-2, double pivot cause the lack of defensive work of magical trio. Di Maria as wing back, he has all to do it,in Sampaoli first match in 2017 against Brazil he played in the same position, we beat them. Wijnaldum is not a defensive midfielder, he will be a super sub. Messi denied the 10 number from Neymar, probably he will wear the 19 half 10 half 9…good number.

    • Pochettino is a fan of 4-2-3-1 more than 4-3-3 so I see no reason why being an Argentine himself, he can’t start DI MARIA, MESSI along with Mbappe and Neymar. Pochettino is not Pep, I won’t worry about the defense being exposed when playing those 4. He is a balanced coach. He is not a ball possessed freak. Mbappe, Neymar, Messi, and Di Maria all are excellent at counter attack.

      I think he would tell Di Maria, Neymar, and Mbappe to defend and let Messi alone without the obligation to defend.

      • Hakimi couldnt play right back, not a defender, plus PSG dont have class left back, double pivots is needed cause magical 3, plus Di Maria and Kimpembe are too good players to not play in the starting 11 imo.

    • Messi wasnt denied the #10 as far i can tell. Neymar offered and Messi declined. Not surprising given Messi personality, he always shows respect. I read he might take #19, wore when Ronaldinho wore the 10 before his departure in 2008.

      For 4231, i would assume they need an aggressive physical ball winner in the double pivot and that’s neither Verratti or Paredes.

  11. In less than 4 weeks we will enjoy our national team again. The complete schedule of the September WC qualifier:

    September 2nd:
    Venezuela vs. ARGENTINA

    September 5th:
    Brazil vs. ARGENTINA

    September 9th:
    ARGENTINA vs. Bolivia

    I expect almost all of the copa america heroes to be back.

  12. Just waiting…Messi in PSG..!
    Haters said Messi wont be successfull in other clubs. He will show to the world what he can do. He will win almost every trophies available. He will score just like Barcelona. I hope he win atleast 1 Champions League and a Ballon D’or there..!

    Sure a WC with Argentina too…!

      • While la liga will look like farmer’s league without messi fcb are dead and who gives f**k now anyway
        I’m glad leo messi is leaving and looking fresh challenge, it’s only psg who can afford him
        Do you want him to play free or as charity it’s business mate in case you don’t know plus Messi is brand by himself french league will sell out now.
        Surely psg will win uefa champions league with messi and that’s big history by it self.

        • Bro then you don’t know the history of la liga Barcelona and Real Madrid used to be worlds two historic clubs even before Messi, Cr7, R9, Zidane , Figo, Iniesta , Xavi ……..
          Yes they can win UCL but messi can’t make their league competitive.
          Barcelona is not dead with the players like Griezmann, De jong, Dembele, Pedri, Aguero, Ansu .
          Imagine Messi playing against Barcelona at Camp nou with fans , it would be tears in his eyes.

          • Mrinal: I never say la liga is farmer’s league
            I was just counter your own words.
            It’s obvious la liga is one of the best leagues in the world if is not the best however fcb and Real are massively declining now because of financial trouble this is first time either Real or fcb can’t compete with other European super power clubs interms economics.

      • Harder to score in France than in Italy nowadays, Serie A is a party league with 3 goal/match average, in France or in Spain the same number is cca 2,5. 40 years old Ibrahimovic, Immobile, Lukaku (MU flop), Quagliarella, old CR or Higuain with record 36 goals say all. Ben Yedder scored 20 goals in last season with 10!!! penalties, he was much better in Spain btw, i dont see the 30 goals strikers in France, only absolute world class freak Mbappe is that.

      • If he wins Champions league with this team…world will remember that. Messi taking that challenge..and he believes PSG has that capacity now. Let him create a history there too.

  13. Otamendi was a failure. We thought he was just one of the Maradona puppets, but then Nuno Espirito Santo bought him from Atletico Mineiro and coached him in Otamendi only season in Valencia which resulted in the team 4th place. That one season was enough to make Otamendi world class and earned a nickname of “Messi and CR7 stopper” in that season and was drawing interests from many top clubs. The next season, Man City bought him.

    Now the same Santo will coach the already world class Cristian Romero. Let’s see what he can do.

    Very good article on Cristian Romero:

    Why Tottenham have signed Cristian ‘Cuti’ Romero, the rugged centre-back who is 23 going on 30​

    RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – JULY 10: Cristian Romero of Argentina lift and kiss the Conmebol Copa America Trophy after winning the Final of Copa America Brazil 2021 ,during the Final Match between Brazil and Argentina at Maracana Stadium on July 10, 2021 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    There was a moment in March when Cristian Romero pulled off such an outrageous bit of defending that the mind went back to something similar from one of his predecessors at new club Tottenham Hotspur.

    To that time when Ledley King somehow charged back to tackle Chelsea’s Arjen Robben 15 years ago despite the Dutchman seemingly having the freedom of White Hart Lane.

    On this occasion, it was another attacker with Chelsea connections who was denied, as Romero raced towards his own goal at San Siro and, with perfect timing, slid in to dispossess Inter’s Romelu Lukaku just as the Belgian went to shoot.
    Lukaku looks to be away as Romero gives chase…
    …but the Atalanta defender eats up the yards, gets close enough to make a challenge…
    …and slides in to divert the ball to safety
    Lukaku’s disbelieving, head-in-hands reaction says it all

    This is what Spurs have signed in Romero, and it helps to explain why they were willing to spend around £43 million plus £4.3 million in add-ons and endure such tortuous negotiations with Atalanta. The fee means Romero is Tottenham’s second most expensive signing ever after Tanguy Ndombele two years ago.

    Convincing Romero himself was straightforward; Spurs’ new managing director of football Fabio Paratici, who also signed the defender for Juventus from Genoa two years ago, explained to him the club’s vision and desire to return to the Champions League (a competition Romero made seven appearances in last season and would have been in again next month if he’d stayed with a club who finished third in Serie A in May). The Athletic understands Romero also discussed the move with his international team-mate Giovani Lo Celso, who spoke highly of the club he joined two years ago. Spurs’ recent loan signing from Atalanta Pierluigi Gollini will of course be another familiar face to Romero.
    So Spurs was an easy sell for Romero, but agreeing a price with Atalanta — a club known for holding firm when selling their players — has dragged on for a couple of weeks. They wanted to be sure that they had lined up a replacement before agreeing to the deal, and have now done so after reaching an agreement with Juventus over Merih Demiral.


    Barcelona were interested in Romero as well — Lionel Messi is believed to have recommended his international team-mate to the club’s hierarchy — but their well-known financial issues scuppered any chance of a deal. Paratici would not be denied, not when it came to a player he knew so well and rates extremely highly, and when signing a centre-back to improve Tottenham’s shaky defence has been a priority from the day he was appointed in June.

    Paratici is not the only one to hold Romero in such high regard. The 23-year-old is fresh from helping Argentina win the Copa America this summer — considered so important to the team that he was rushed back from injury for the final after sitting out the three previous games — and being named last season’s Serie A defender of the year (Yes, the same Serie A that Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci play in).

    He is a rugged, aggressive, no-nonsense centre-back, but also someone who can get his head up and pick a pass and score the odd goal, too. While not the tallest for a centre-back at a haircut over 6ft, Romero is extremely physical and sharp at reading the game — even earning comparisons with the legendary, and relatively short for a centre-back at 5ft 9in, Fabio Cannavaro.

    “He’s played in Italy for a few years and plays like an Italian defender,” says a source in Argentina. “He’s rugged and the culture there is famous for its defenders.”

    Romero is still young, having turned 23 in late April, but when he plays has the weathered appearance of someone far more experienced — in the tradition of Argentinian centre-backs such as Roberto Ayala and Walter Samuel. Romero’s own dad even jokes that his son already looks about 30.

    The Tottenham new boy also shares those compatriots’ uncompromising approach and familiarity with a card or two. Sent off in just his second game for Genoa in October 2018, across his three seasons in Italy he got a staggering 39 yellows and three reds in 102 games. He was substituted on several occasions last season for fear he would pick up a second booking.

    But despite this ill-discipline, there are few more sought-after young centre-backs in Europe than the man known back home as “Cuti” — a nickname he was given as a child by his elder sister Aldana because he couldn’t say Cristian.

    When he was a bit older, aged 13, Cristian said that his dream was to “play in Europe and for the national team”.

    A decade on, “Cuti” has achieved that dream, and then some. This is how he has done it, and the kind of player Spurs have signed.
    It should be said that, until the Copa America in Brazil this summer, Romero was far from a household name back home in Argentina. In fact, up until that tournament, even some experts there admitted they knew very little about him.

    Through a combination of his unassuming character, the fact that attackers always have a much higher profile, and him coming from the tiny town of Villa Lago Rivadavia in the country’s interior, near the border with Chile, very little was known about Romero in his home country until this summer.

    As a child, Romero was toughened up by playing football with his older brother and cousins. “He was the youngest but he defended himself,” Romero’s father Quito told Argentinian sports newspaper Ole in June. “He already liked to go out playing and had a lot of personality, like now, when he is 23 years old but looks 30.”

    Gustavo Spallina, a former player and now a well-regarded scout for Cordoba club Belgrano was similarly struck by the young Romero.
    “The first time I saw him, I realized that he was a spectacular defender,” Spallina said earlier this year. “He was very serious, he didn’t laugh at all and he had a lot of presence.” A 13-year-old Romero told Spallina earnestly that his dream was to “play in Europe and for the national team”.

    Spallina convinced Belgrano to sign the youngster shortly after and having impressed there with his tenacity and aggression, he earned himself a move to Genoa in summer 2018, two months after turning 20.

    Moving to the spiritual home of touch-tight, aggressive defending was an education for the talented but raw Romero. “Tactically it was a disaster when I arrived in Italy. In Genoa, I learned a lot,” Romero, who doesn’t speak a great deal publicly, has since admitted.

    He had to learn extremely quickly, as on his debut he was tasked with marking Cristiano Ronaldo, who had joined Juventus that summer. He acquitted himself well in a 1-1 draw in Turin, and despite the red card in his next match against Udinese had performed so consistently by the end of the season that he caught Juventus’s eye.

    Paratici oversaw a transfer that cost Juventus around £17 million and instantly loaned the player back to Genoa, which is not uncommon in Italy. The following year, Romero was loaned to Atalanta with an option for the Bergamo club to buy at the end of it. They exercised that option immediately before selling Romero to Spurs.

    The season just gone at Atalanta gives us a good insight into the kind of player Tottenham are signing.
    Positionally, as the graphic below shows, Romero spent the majority of his time (75 per cent) in the middle of a defensive back three, though he also played a bit as the right-side centre-back (24 per cent).
    If new Spurs head coach Nuno Espirito Santo plays that system, he will slot into the centre of a back three. However, with Nuno expected to go with a back four, Romero will be part of a central defensive pairing. He is right-footed so will not solve Tottenham’s ongoing issue of the absence of a left-footed centre-back (other than left-back Ben Davies, who can play on the left of a back three).

    As for his defensive partner, Spurs are keen to sell Davinson Sanchez and bring in another centre-back during this window.

    Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu, who can play as a central defender or at right-back, is expected to join after the culmination of the Olympic Games, where he has been representing defeated semi-finalists and tournament hosts Japan. If Tomiyasu plays right-back, it would leave Eric Dier, Joe Rodon and potentially Japhet Tanganga (who is subject to a loan bid from Galatasaray), plus any further new arrival, battling it out for the place alongside Romero.


    To get a sense of Romero’s strengths and weaknesses, we can look at the data from smarterscout, which rates an individual’s ability in specific metrics out of 99 relative to other players in their position.
    The next graphic illustrates that Romero excels in disrupting opposition attacks with his defensive intensity (86 out of 99) and ability to step in and win the ball (94/99).


    These next images, from Atalanta’s 2-0 Champions League win away at Liverpool last November, are a good example of Romero’s impressive defensive numbers in action.

    Spotting Jordan Henderson’s pass aimed for Diogo Jota, Romero steps forward…
    …Jota had looked like the favourite to win the ball but Romero barges him out of the way and takes possession…
    …with a tackle so clean it sets up an Atalanta counter-attack

    Romero is also comfortable being taken into the channels, something the slower Dier and now-departed Toby Alderweireld struggled with last season. Once there, Romero has the upper body strength to knock attackers off their stride.

    And he loves a tackle, which partly explains why he picks up so many yellow cards. More often than not though, Romero gets his timing right (as in that Lukaku incident above).

    This next example comes last November’s 1-1 home draw with Inter when Woolwich target Lautaro Martinez looked certain to score at the near post from close range.

    Sensing that Matteo Darmian is going to be in a position to cross, Romero starts to track Martinez…
    …and takes up a position that allows him to make the tackle without giving away a penalty
    Romero not only stops Martinez from scoring but cleanly wins back possession…
    …he then calmly strides out and passes to team-mate Hans Hateboer with his weaker left foot

    The above was not an isolated incident while at Atalanta. Last season Romero averaged a combined 5.6 tackles and interceptions per 90 minutes in Serie A, the highest figure of any player in the division per Stats Perform, and the next graphic illustrates this impressive tackling.

    Though it also shows that, not being the tallest, Romero is vulnerable when dealing with crosses. This also partly explains why he’s more comfortable playing in a back three.


    Partly as a consequence of his tackling ability, Romero is viewed in Argentina as a pure defender — drawing comparisons with Ayala, who reached the 2000-01 Champions League final with Valencia and won 116 international caps. Ayala is now on Lionel Scaloni’s coaching staff for Argentina, so has worked directly with Romero.

    Romero has also been compared to former Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos for his aggressive style and strength in one-on-one situations. It would be fair to say as well that he has a disciplinary record that almost rivals Paris Saint-Germain new boy Ramos’s. It remains to be seen whether Romero can get to Ramos’s level, but there is a view in Italy that he could have a similarly transformative effect on the Spurs defence as Ruben Dias and Virgil van Dijk had at Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

    Interestingly, returning to how he plays, the numbers suggest that stylistically the defender Romero is least similar to is Conor Coady — Nuno’s captain for his four seasons at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
    In fairness, back threes in the Premier League are a little less common than on the continent, so there aren’t really any directly similar players to compare Romero to, given how aggressive he is as a centre-back in that system. It gives a sense though of how he likes to step out and play on the front foot. With the pace he has, as shown in the Lukaku example at the top of this piece, he knows he can drop back in if caught out of position.

    Romero also has decent distribution, which will be needed with Alderweireld having moved on.
    Looking again at Atalanta’s win at Anfield last season, he demonstrated his ability to step out and start attacks with a clip over the top.

    Romero steps out of defence and plays a pass that dissects the Liverpool back line…
    ….Atalanta get in behind as a result and the move ends in a shot that hits the side netting

    Generally though, Romero is judicious with when to play it forwards, typically keeping his passes short and out wide to the wing-backs (hence him registering a low score, 10 out of 99, for progressive passing on the pizza chart above).

    But he does like to get forward, and registered two goals and two assists in Serie A last season — both very good for a defender.

    His desire to not just defend is to his credit but can lead to him making the odd mistake and giving the ball away. “It is no coincidence that Juventus bought him. He has quality, although he sometimes makes risky decisions,“ his manager at Atalanta, Gian Piero Gasperini, said last season.
    Despite his impressive performances in Italy, Romero was barely known in his homeland until this summer. That all changed at the Copa America, when he helped the national team win their first title major title in 28 years.

    Romero picked up a knee injury in the group stage and looked as though he would miss the rest of the tournament. Instead, he came back for the final against Brazil and, lining up alongside Lo Celso, lasted 79 minutes before being substituted. The decision to play was ultimately his, and his performance in the final was typically fearless.

    “He just never seems to get nervous,” says Mariano Dayan, the general editor of Ole — the biggest sports publication in Argentina. “It’s not normal. Nothing fazes him. He asked to play in the Copa America final despite carrying an injury, that says it all.

    “It’s also not normal in Argentina to come into the team so young as a defender. Compare with Nicolas Otamendi, who’s been in the team for years.”

    The victory was particularly sweet for Romero after suffering the disappointment of being left out of the squad for the Under-20 World Cup in 2017.

    Romero celebrated his country’s historic victory by returning to his hometown, where he has set up his own football school with an intake of more than 300 children. There, he could do what he most enjoys doing — relaxing with his family over a barbecue and a small fernet, a popular spirit in Cordoba.

    His profile may have been raised after the Copa America but at heart he is still the shy boy his parents remember from his childhood; the eight-year-old his dad told was “going to be a crack (a star) and reach the top”.

    Romero’s father Quito, who still has all the clippings and photos of Cristian playing as a child, said in June: “Obviously at home we always believed in him, but it is difficult to leave a club in the interior and establish yourself so fast in Europe. It is showing what we knew would happen, although I thought it would take a little longer… It’s all a dream.”

    Romero appears to be a man in a hurry, and he’ll need to hit the ground running in north London and channel his inner Ledley again as Spurs look to him to help fix their leaky defence.

    The fact he has already had both Covid vaccinations and Italy is on the UK’s ‘amber list’ will mean he shouldn’t have to quarantine for five days upon his arrival, assuming he tests negative. That may give him an outside chance of making his debut against Manchester City in Tottenham’s season opener next weekend, a game where his presence in the back line would be most welcome

  15. Aguero is no longer a free agent- no point talking..

    I will wish good luck to Laporta to take Barcelona on their long journey..and bring good is still hard to believe Barcelona is dependent on free agent players..

    At this moment – Laporta is the most powerful person in Barcelona..with Messi out..

  16. I made my feelings about Romero’s transfer very clear, so nothing more to add apart from me wishing him the best. Romero is WAY too good for those lily whites and I just hope that he’ll end up bringing them up instead of Spurs bringing him down, which is what usually happens with them.

    • I saw a picture of Aguero training yesterday, he did not look happy at all. I hope he can terminate the contract and go to Inter… but Lautaro also seems OK to go to EPL? What if Aguero goes to Inter and Lautaro moves somewhere?

      Well as long as Barca promises Aguero first team football, it is fine that he is staying.

  17. Messi leaving is good for both him and Barcelona..It will take Barcelona time to rebuild and scout, but that’s going to the case for any club when you lose the most important player and have an aging team..

    Would have liked Messi in EPL..lets see

  18. For me, the right place for Messi at this moment is Chelsea; however he will feel lonely there without his gangs and language problem plus maybe his fans doesn’t like London and EPL 🙂

    Paris offers more luxury and happy life

  19. From Disaster to Seria A’s best defender.

    Must read article on Can’t share the link as I copied the header from the app, website can’t be opened in Canada!!

    A small paragraph from the article, de Vrij, Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni may have played pivotal roles in Inter’s Serie A success, but it was Romero who was rightly named the league’s best defender.

  20. With all the star players around Messi’s workload will reduce to half!! Also if Icardi scores few goals of off Messi’s assist he might endup playing the world cup. Win win scenario for Albiceleste!! All I want is PSG to offload Mbappe to Madrid!!

  21. Wow, I was thinking about PSG just few days ago and all the fire power they’ll have at their disposal this season and here comes the cherry on top, the Boss of Bosses.
    Suddenly Messi doesn’t have to throw the ball and run to catch it anymore, Barcelona F**ed up and that Idiot Koeman is going to be at the wheel when his ship starts sinking……….he might not even finish the season.

    We are ARGENTINA diehards here and at least MY allegiance when it comes to football is to the sky-blue and white and NO ONE ELSE.
    To hell with Barcelona and NOT just for letting their greatest football player go and possibly the greatest ever but for other few things as well:
    Not fully supporting Messi when his bogus tax-issues came to light……..seems like anybody who ever worked in Spain has the same issue………..last I heard Shakria was on the chopping block now……….go figure.
    How Messi was treated at the beginning of last season when they tangled him around like a doll, YOU DON’T DO THAT TO MESSI.
    Hiring one idiot coach after another to run the club and in doing so shooting themselves in the ass and killing any chance they had for winning the UEFA again.
    Ridiculous signing of one player after another that came out to nothing, the signing of Coutinho ALONE financed Liverpool run to the EPL and UEFA!!
    All the behind the scenes, he said, she said about Messi that all turned out to be LIES.
    Being cheap when it came proper players, forgot his former club, but when they offered to sell Ansensio for 5 million, Barcelona answer was, can we do installments!!!!, RM came in and said we’ll pay the full amount.
    Messi will now have more than enough rest he needs to compete at club and country level without being worked to death.

    • Yes exactly spot on ! Your points are exactly pinpointed as clear as they can be ! Specially i will only be allways just intrested about our beloved Albiceleste as u said it allready so well in your post ! Not to even mention all the bullshit from Barca for blody decades since allready all the way back to DIEGO himself and all the rest of Argentine players who just got shit from Barca as RIQUELME, SORIN , SAVIOLA ETC… AND OFFCOURSE LEO HIMSELF ! So no need to cry for Barcelona anymore or should actually i rather say no need to cry for LEO anymore, but unfortunatly Still for KUN !

      Fucking Barca allways messing Argentine players !

  22. There’s plenty to like about Romero’​

    South American football expert Tim Vickery:

    “Centre-back has been a real problem position for Argentina for years and just since the start of June when he first played, Cristian Romero has been greeted as the saviour. Even with just five caps, he’s now the first defender on the team sheet for Argentina.

    “He had a few injuries during the Copa America and only played three games, but Argentina didn’t concede in those three games and had a splendid season at Atlanta, who are an attacking club. Their defence was often exposed but he came through that very well.

    “He’s combative – sometimes a little too combative – he’s 23 so there’s a lot of football ahead of him. Tottenham may be paying a little over the odds for him, but there’s plenty to like about him. He’s a real fighter.”

    That seems to be the general consensus. If he mature’s, smartens up & calms down a bit then it sounds like we have a good player on our hands.
    Doubt he will be a bad signing. Either decent 7/10 player or a good 8-9/10 player.

    • Yes indeed brilliant signing for any club he is allready and will just get better as year’s will follow ! And if it is Spurs he has chosen then let him be the one who chooses for his own career rather than someone else ! And Nuno once made a beast out Otamendi in Valencia and Romero is allready a beast so there can be that he will end up as one of the greatest CB’s of this new era to come !
