Cristian Romero speaks about Tottenham Hotspur and Argentina teammate Giovani Lo Celso in high regards

In conversation with Spurs TV (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur duo Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso shared several details about their relationship on and off the pitch.

The 23-year-old defender is slowly starting to cement his place in this Spurs side along with Eric Dier at the back. He has been an instrumental piece in the early part of his career with the Lilywhites since signing from Atalanta on loan this summer.

He even won the Man of the Match award in the Lilywhites’ last Carabao Cup fixture against Burnley. The North-Londoners secured a clinical 1-0 victory courtesy of a precise header from Lucas Moura on the night.

That being said the young defender does lose his composure on occasions and had to be sent off in their last UEFA Europa Conference League fixture against SBV Vitesse. It was also the first match where Antonio Conte was the head coach of the Lilywhites.

Lo Celso praised by Romero

The former Paris Saint-Germain player insisted that Romero was the strongest amongst the pair. He also highlighted that the central defender is used to aggression thanks to his position:

“He’s a centre back, he’s used to aggression.”

Lo Celso has impressed in parts and pieces but is yet to nail down a starting position in this senior squad at Tottenham Hotspur. The Argentinian midfielder has to rival the likes of Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele in this team.

The Spurs midfielder has had slightly better luck with the Argentina national football team. He has been consistent for La Albiceleste and played an integral part in the team that won the Copa América.

When asked about who had the better technique, Romero prompted that his 25-year-old teammate was the better of the duo. He also went on to state that Lo Celso was one of the best in South America:

“Lo Celso. He made us win the Copa America. The best midfielder in South America,”

The duo is slowly starting to get used to life at N-17. Both the Argentianin internationals could play a massive role under the new Italian manager who prefers to play with a three at the back. Hopefully, Conte gives Giovani more chances to display his talent while Romero would be looking to further nail down his position in that backline.
