Pierluigi Gollini feels Tottenham mate Cristian Romero will flourish in the Premier League
According to Football.london, Pierluigi Gollini felt that his Tottenham Hotspur mate Cristian Romero can flourish in the Premier League. The former Atalanta keeper praised the defender and opined that Romero will eventually come good.
When Spurs managed to get their hands on Atalanta star Romero, it was seen as an astute move. After all, the defender was adjudged Serie A’s Defender of the Year last season. Romero was a part of the exciting Atalanta side over the last few seasons and impressed overall. He added another feather to his cap when he won the Copa America with Argentina.
However, Romero’s career at Spurs did not start in the best of fashion. With few cameos here and there, he was still getting to know the lay of the land. Then he went on international duty which ruled him out of some important games last week. However, he has been restored to the lineup over the last two games.
Romero has not kept clean sheets during those games but his former Atalanta and now Spurs mate Pierluigi Gollini is not worried. He was of the opinion that Romeo will come good in the Premier League.
“This guy is an animal, I swear. He’s perfect for the Premier League. He’s played for many years with three at the back and especially when you play with a very aggressive style and play man for man, it’s a completely different to thing to in a four. You have to work and defend more like a group, a group of four and defend more the zone and less the man. So he needs to adjust and he will do it because he’s a clever guy and an amazing player.”
Gollini felt that his mate will need some time and patience to get to know the league and its style of play. With so much going on, the keeper said that people often don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes.

Romero’s talent and quality are not in doubt. However, he will need to get familiar with things a bit faster than he is doing currently. With more matches to come, there are still enough chances for Romero to impress and keep true to Gollini’s predictions.
