Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero recently discussed his fitness status in anticipation of Spurs’ upcoming Premier League match. The Argentine center-back opened up about his condition following his participation in Argentina’s game against Peru, where he did not play the entire match due to discomfort in his right ankle.
In an interview with Argentine outlet La Voz, Romero disclosed that he had requested to be substituted due to the swelling in his right ankle. Despite the setback, he maintained a positive outlook and expressed his reasons for leaving the pitch early.
“That’s why I decided to come out (of the starting XI) at half-time,” explained Romero. “As we also have an important home game with Tottenham Hotspur on Monday against Fulham.”
Romero’s dedication to his club, Tottenham Hotspur, was evident as he prioritized his fitness for the upcoming fixture. He recognized the significance of the match against Fulham and made a sensible decision to ensure he would be in the best possible condition to contribute to the team’s success.
The Argentine defender’s confidence in his fellow players was palpable as he praised the depth of talent within the Argentine national team. He described them as a “team of animals” and expressed certainty that whoever replaced him on the field would make a significant impact.
In his words, “But this is a team of animals (Argentina) and whoever comes in is sure to be a cracker.”
