“I got told…” – Something Levy did before Ange even arrived may have saved Spurs star’s career

Parting ways with Antonio Conte in favour of appointing Ange Postecoglou may prove to be one of the best decisions of Daniel Levy’s tenure as the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Lilywhites are unbeaten after four Premier League games, having won three and drawn one, under the former Celtic manager. The victory over Manchester United, which Spurs won 2-0, was their most spectacular achievement to date. The Lilywhites seized control as required by Ange’s aggressive and front-foot style of play.

The majority of Spurs’ positive moments this season have also come from their offense, although their backline has significantly improved. And that’s in part thanks to one outstanding player who, according to Michael Bridge, might not even have stayed at the club had Conte still been around.

What did Michael Bridge say?

Bridge indicated that Conte’s failure to connect with a crucial component of the Lilywhites’ defense on the Last Word on Spurs podcast may have finally resulted in his departure.

Cristian Romero is the man in question, according to the Sky Sports reporter. Bridge stated that the star defender might have left the club if Levy hadn’t fired Conte.

Bridge claimed that Romero would have departed if Conte had stayed, according to a reliable source. They no longer matter, but I don’t believe they connected at all.

Months later, and with Spurs flying under Postecoglou, fans will be breathing a sigh of relief that it was Conte who departed and not Romero in the summer transfer window. If they lost arguably their best defender alongside club-record goalscorer Harry Kane in the same window, then Spurs would have had themselves an impossible uphill battle this season.

How has Romero performed this season?

Romero has been easily back to his best for Spurs so far this season, and he deserves a lot of credit for the strong start that the North London team has had without Conte to worry about. In terms of statistics, the Argentine has so far this season even outperformed Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool, who is usually regarded as the league’s top center-back.

After Argentina overcame Ecuador, Messi lauded his teammate, telling TalkSport, “For me, he is the best defender in the world right now.” Man of the Match tonight for an amazing performance.

Although it is high praise for the Spurs defender, his performances this season have more than justified it. Postecoglou will only be looking forward to Romero’s performance following the international break, when his team may make more progress toward winning the Champions League again.
