A large number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been sharing their delight on Twitter following the latest update to emerge regarding Cristian Romero’s injury status.
The summer signing has struggled with injuries since arriving in north London and the latest issue has kept him out of action since November.
Should Romero return straight into the starting XI?
However, Antonio Conte has revealed the 23-year-old centre-back is edging ever closer to a return to first-team action having stepped up his training at Hotspur Way.
“Cristian Romero, I am pleased because I am seeing how he is almost 100 per cent fit and he is very very close to coming back, and for sure after the international break he is available to play and help us,” said Conte on Friday.
Fans had already been boosted by Romero not receiving a call up for the upcoming international break and these fans were clearly buzzing with Conte’s latest update.
What did these fans have to say?
“Yeah top4 is locked up”
The Athletic has reported the upcoming FA Cup clash against Brighton & Hove Albion on 5 February as being a potential date for the Argentine to make his return to the squad.
