“I’ll mess you up” — Tottenham player and dressing room dispute about possible red card

 A story about Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero is doing the rounds in the Argentine media this week.

That comes from a documentary that ESPN is releasing on the 20th anniversary of Argentina’s World Cup victory.

Emiliano Martinez’s lengthy interviews are finally being made available to the public, and the Tottenham player was among the anecdotes he was had to share.

The goalie expressed his displeasure with Romero at the time, recalling that he felt the Spurs player should have been sent off in the championship match against France.

“I am aware of Cuti’s vulnerability; in the France match final, he intentionally fouled Mbappé with both feet. Everything about the ball he grabbed. Martinez recalled, “At halftime, I grabbed him by the shirt and threatened to mess you up after the game. They’re going to throw you out.”

I have to tell Cuti to stop striking, please. I constantly catch Cuti in that sense when he plays, just on the border of red.

The Aston Villa player also shared a humorous anecdote about Romero kicking him following an impressive save.

“Everyone gave me hugs, and Cuti gave me a classic kick to the ribs. His love is pounding like that. That’s when my World Cup journey started; at that point, I thought it didn’t matter if we won 7–5 or not.

Argentina’s World Cup victory is still fresh in the memory, and ESPN is doing a fantastic job of unearthing forgotten campaign tales.

Participating in every national team game in the campaign, the Tottenham player became one of the faces of an iconic victory. It’s quite likely that ESPN will appear shortly with some of his statements as well.
