Cristian Romero has given his verdict on Tottenham Hotspur new signing Clement Lenglet

Cristian Romero has labelled new Tottenham Hotspur signing Clement Lenglet as ‘excellent’. This is as per an interview published on Football. London.

Lenglet was signed on a season-long loan deal by the north London club this summer from Barcelona. And now Romero has labelled his fellow defender as someone who is going to add a lot to the group.

“We’ve built a good working relationship within the group since his arrival and we’re helping him to integrate as fast as possible. As a player, he’s excellent and he’s going to add a lot to the group. These types of players make the squad better, so it’s very important to have them in our ranks.”

The Frenchman has started the past two games for the north London side and has impressed, especially in the 2-1 win against Fulham. It can be seen why Antonio Conte wanted the centre-back in his team.

It is hardly surprising that Lenglet has been able to deliver such good performances. The 27-year-old has spent four seasons at Barcelona. No matter what one may say, it does take some quality to be able to play for the Catalonia club.

Romero, meanwhile, returned from injury, which led him to miss three games last month. The defender did play against Fulham and Marseille.

A fan favourite at the north London club, the 24-year-old made his loan move permanent until 2027 at the end of August. And now the Argentine is hoping to end his season with silverware.

“For this season, on a personal level, I would like to add my name to that of the players who have won a trophy here at Tottenham – that would be the greatest achievement.”

It is no doubt that many fans along with Conte will hope that the drought comes to an end this season. The Italian coach has a very exciting team under his belt and one could imagine this team lifting some silverware by the end of this season.

Spurs were to take on Manchester City this weekend, but that has been cancelled due to the death of The Queen. This means that it is likely Spurs will play Sporting Lisbon for their next game this Tuesday and both Lenglet and Romero could start.

A win against the Portuguese outlet will really put us in the driving seat for qualification. Sporting won their first game of the UCL group stage by a 3-0 margin against Eintracht Frankfurt.
