Cristian Romero has declared that he will dedicate his prime to Tottenham Hotspur.
Football London’s Alasdair Gold published an interview with Romero on Friday (July 25). Romero opened up about his disappointing season with Antonio Conte, his thoughts on new manager Enzi Postecoglou, and his love for Spurs.
Romero is a center back who is known for his aggressive defense. He is a ‘fighter’ defender who uses his physicality to take the ball away from the opposition. He is also good on the ball and can play one-on-one in build-up situations.
He joined Tottenham in the summer of 2021. He guided Spurs to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2021-2022 season, but was unable to prevent Spurs from falling to eighth place and failing to qualify for Europe last season. It was a disappointing end to a season that saw Romero win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with Argentina.
Romero reflects on the season. “When I came back to Tottenham after winning the World Cup, there was a rift between the team and Conte, but I still feel responsible for the disappointing results. I was not happy that last season ended the way it did. I’m ready to play my best and repay the trust the club put in me,” he said, vowing not to repeat his mistakes.
Spurs signaled their intentions to change this summer when they hired Postecoglou. Postecoglou won the “Domestic Treble” (domestic league and cup triumphs) with Celtic, playing attacking football. Since his arrival at Tottenham, he has showcased his tactical philosophy with a 4-2-3-1 system against West Ham United on Sept. 18.
Romero was also excited. “Postecoglou has brought new hope. The squad is great right now and we are hungry for a great season, reaching as high as possible,” he said. “We are hungry with the new coach. We are hungry with the new coach and we know he is a very good leader,” he said, expressing his deep trust in Postecoglou. 메이저사이트
Romero’s affection for Tottenham also runs deep. He received offers from several clubs after the end of the season, but rejected them all. Just as he did when he moved from Atalanta to Tottenham, Spurs is still the only club in his heart.
“I want to spend my prime years at Tottenham, I really like the Premier League, I really like Tottenham. I want to spend a really long time here,” he said, confirming that he will remain at Tottenham unless something changes.
