Ange Postecoglou makes Tottenham transfer stance clear after fresh injury blow

Cristian Romero is set for four weeks on the sidelines after hurting his right hamstring in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Everton at the weekend, with Ange Postecoglou suffering another injury blow

Cristian Romero, a center defender for Tottenham, is expected to miss almost a month of activity due to a hamstring injury, according to manager Ange Postecoglou.

After being substituted during the half of Argentina’s 2-1 victory against Everton last weekend, a scan revealed minor muscular injury.

Romero’s condition isn’t good; according to a scan performed recently, he has a hamstring injury. Therefore, we’re looking at four to five weeks for him,” Postecoglou stated. On Thursday night, Postecoglou will lead his Spurs squad to Brighton, but he maintains that Romero’s absence won’t affect the club’s January transfer ambitions.

Many left-footed center halves have been linked to Spurs, but the Australian said: “No, it doesn’t change anything.” Certainly disappointing to lose him. After his suspension, we clearly missed him. We had only recently gotten him back and things had somewhat stabilized, but now he has been absent once more for a significant amount of time.

But it doesn’t actually alter. Time cannot be accelerated, buddy. December has not ended. No matter what, January 1st always remains January 1st. The scheduling and the plans remain unchanged.

“The idea now that it could be a right-sided one or someone who can play in both is that the perception on the outside originally was that a left-sided center-back might come in,” Postecoglou continued.

“I don’t put as much stock into the left-sided or right-sided centre-back scenario, we just need another player in that position who can provide some more depth for us and the ability to change it up.

Cristian Romero will be out for a month.

Left- or right-sidedness won’t matter; what matters most is the profile and traits. At the beginning of the season, we didn’t search for a left-handed center back; Micky was the ideal center back.

“I would have signed him even if we had another left-sided player.” It involves determining what is accessible by looking at the appropriate profile and qualities, then taking it from there.

Micky van de Ven is getting close to playing again, but Postecoglou has identified mid-January as a more likely return date after the summer signing expressed optimism about an early comeback at the global darts tournament last week.

“I wouldn’t be taking players’ views on their recovery process,” the head coach said. “He’s getting closer, we’ll see

at some point in January. Not sure about Burnley, but maybe Manchester United on the 14th.

“But once more, until I see them working out with us and he’s not a member of the team, I don’t consider comeback dates.” We’ll see how he’s doing at the end of the week; he’s not scheduled to be with the group this week.
