Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal put up an Instagram story where he admitted that he is very comfortable and enjoys playing alongside Cristian Romero. A post on Instagram shows him hugging the Argentine defender in the tunnel of Spurs’ home stadium.

The 23-year-old captioned the photo with the Argentina defender as follows: ‘a pleasure to play with you’.

The pair often interact on the right flank of Tottenham’s defense and the friendship plays an important role in the players’ mutual understanding.

Therefore, Emerson’s excellent play in the first round once again cemented him as a player in the starting lineup at the wing-back position.
