Tottenham Hotspur defender suffers injury on international duty

Cristian Romero sustains a calf injury while on international duty

Tottenham Hotspur have suffered a setback after their outstanding center-back, Cristian Romero, sustained a calf injury while on international duty with Argentina.

This unexpected turn of events has sent shockwaves through the Tottenham camp, increasing fears about the team’s defensive stability in the remaining matches. The injury to Romero was confirmed by journalist Luis Fregossi.

According to Fregossi, the degree of the injury is unknown, but it calls Romero’s availability for Argentina’s forthcoming match against Bolivia into question. The player will be evaluated further tomorrow to establish the extent of the damage.

This injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for Tottenham. Since his arrival, Cristian Romero has been one of their top performers, posting rock-solid performances in every game he’s been in.

Romero has created a powerful defensive partnership with promising recruit Micky van de Ven, instilling confidence in the Spurs supporters. Notably, Romero has taken on a leadership position at Tottenham this season.

With the departure of talisman Harry Kane, manager Ange Postecoglou made the audacious decision to name Heung-min Son leader, with James Maddison and Cristian Romero serving as vice-captains.

Romero’s promotion to co-vice-captain has had a significant impact on his on-field performance. He’s developed into a more dependable presence in the heart of the defence, commanding the backline and organising his teammates with authority.

However, Romero’s injury has left Tottenham with a major vacancy in the centre-back position to fill. With only Eric Dier and teenage defender Ashley Phillips as options, manager Ange Postecoglou must make a difficult decision on who should replace Romero.
