‘It’s a shame’ – Cristian Romero comments on his hamstring scare after Everton victory

Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero had assured fans that he will recover quickly after being unable to finish the game against Everton due to an injury scare.

Romero began the match against the Toffees playing in center defense with Ben Davies. Eric Dier replaced the Argentine during the second half of the 2-1 triumph.

With an ice pack strapped to his right hamstring, the World Cup winner was observed watching the second half of the match from the substitutes’ bench.

Micky van de Ven has already missed Spurs games since the match against Chelsea in early November. Tottenham did not win any of those matches, despite the fact that Cristian Romero was also sent off in that match and missed three more games.

Understandably, Tottenham are looking to reinforce the defence. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed around a week ago that Spurs had opened talks with French club OGC Nice to try and sign Jean-Clair Todibo in January.

Spurs cannot afford another injury

This season, Ange Postecoglou has had a great lot of difficulty managing the injuries and suspensions in his team. Manor Solomon, Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, and others are still a long way from being fit again.On the opposite side, Yves Bissouma received a four-match suspension following his second red card of the season at Nottingham Forest.

Heung-min Son may be sidelined for six weeks in the new year owing to South Korea’s involvement in the Asian Cup, while Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr are expected to lose a significant amount of playing time at the beginning of the season since they are attending the AFCON.

Luckily for Spurs fans, Romero took to Instagram to reveal that he was disappointed to not finish the game and should be back soon.

He wrote: “Another great important victory and a special day to celebrate my 200 games at club level. It’s a shame not to be able to finish the game, but I will recover quickly to continue helping the team. I wish you all happy holidays and always all together.”

The defense that included Pedro Porro, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, and Emerson Royal saw the game through to the end yesterday night. Not all four of those names were playing in their proper places. If the team is serious about contending for a top four finish, this is not ideal.

Going forward, Postecoglou will gradually but definitely heal a few of his wounded players. Jean-Clair Todibo is the exact type of player our defense needs, therefore the approach to get him is very positive. In any case, we need to know that Romero’s injury is not life-threatening. We can only hope that’s the case.
