Cristian Romero spoke about the Argentina national team and his career.
Romero was one of Tottenham’s big signings and a Copa America champion with Argentina, he revealed it wasn’t always easy for him. Only 23 years old, Romero has become a starter in the Argentina national team. Speaking in an interview with ESPN F90, here is what Romero said about his career:
“When I think of everything I have accomplished, I shed a tear. Some time ago I thought about giving up football and today, all of this happens to me.
“When I was 17 years old, the higher us at Belgrano gave me a lot of shit and told me a lot of things. When I signed with Genoa, they (Belgrano directors) told me that in three months I’ll have to go back to Cordoba and look for a job. These are words that stick with you forever.
“At one point in Belgrano, I wasn’t playing and logically I wanted to leave. I’m a fan of the club and it hurts but it’s things that I will never understand. It was a very difficult year but I came out of it stronger.”
In regards to the Argentina national team:
“The Argentina national team came at the best time of my career. Sharing a group with the best players in the world makes you learn and grow a lot. That was a dream.
“Match after match, we know each other more. Playing with Otamendi by my side, Lean (Paredes) in front and Dibu (Emiliano Martinez) behind gives us a lot of confidence. We are not the best but we can compete and we can compete and face anyone.”
