Spurs fans have been reacting to a tweet from Alasdair Gold, in which he shares some details on Cristian Romero’s recent injury problems.
The Argentine defender is yet to make a start in the Premier League since joining on a loan-to-buy deal from Atalanta earlier in the transfer window and looked to be struggling with injury again in the midweek win against Pacos de Ferreira.
It seems unlikely that the 23-year-old will be fit to start against Watford on Sunday afternoon, with Gold sharing an update in his article for Football.London, in which he shared some quotes from Nuno Espirito Santo regarding the centre-back.
“I think he is doing well. It was his second match since he joined us. He has had issues. Even on Thursday, he finished the game with some problems, but he is a fantastic player.”
How did Spurs react to this news on Romero?
“I’m shocked, let this guy heal we need him for Chelsea no need to play him through injuries.”
“I fear Romero is gonna be one of those players that never hits his potential with us due to permanent injuries. The only good news for him is that knowing our luck, they will instantly clear up once he leaves the club.”
“Then why are they playing him through knee injuries? That’s ridiculous, you’re not gonna play your way through knee pain.”
“No point risking him this weekend. Let the guy heal.”
“Do we ever buy a player that’s fully fit and ready to start matches?”
“Can we just let Romero heal up 100%, please?? Do we really want another case of a player carrying an injury for a whole season? Come on!”
Should Spurs be risking Romero?
It seems strange that Spurs were willing to risk Romero in midweek if he is carrying a knee injury and perhaps the North London club should just let his injury heal before playing him again, as these Spurs fans suggest.
Although they have managed two 1-0 wins in the Premier League so far this season, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez have shown that they can be error-prone in the past, so Spurs fans will be desperate to have a fully fit Romero starting at the back for them on a regular basis this season.
Unfortunately, it seems as if they will have to wait a while before seeing the Argentina international start in the Premier League.
