Tottenham Hotspur want Cristiano Romero to return ‘quickly’ after Argentina’s 2022 FIFA World Cup win

Cristian Romero’s father has said that his son is wanted ‘quickly’ back in England after Argentina’s 2022 FIFA World Cup win in Qatar.

As a Spurs fan, one would have to admit that it was too much of a coincidence when the former Juventus centre-back missed a plethora of games due to a hamstring injury right before the World Cup.

But he was fit enough to feature in Argentina’s opening World Cup group-stage game against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Certainly a great recovery in those 10 days between Spurs’ 4-3 Premier League win vs Leeds United and the 2-1 loss against the Saudis.

But he was used a lot by manager Lionel Scaloni in the past four weeks and it was an immensely proud moment for every single person associated with the club to see just our second player ever to lift the FIFA World Cup trophy.

Spurs’ dilemma

Perhaps it was a good call to afford him the rest he needed to recover in time. But after featuring in all seven of his team’s games in Qatar, he is now wanted back at Tottenham ‘quickly’, as per his father, who told La Voz (h/t Evening Standard):

“He won’t have much time to enjoy himself. We’ll see how it goes. But they already want him back in England.”

There is no denying that Romero is crucial to our defence and arguably our best centre-back. He has shown that with us in the past 12 months and now with the Argentina national team.

But we have to make sure he isn’t overworked. One game’s rest would be the safest way to go about it – the away Premier League clash against Brentford on 26 December is a game we should be able to navigate our way through with or without Romero.

But it remains to be seen how manager Antonio Conte goes about it. He has been careful this season with injuries to Lucas Moura, Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski and Romero, so it would be consistent with his approach if the Argentina star is afforded at least a game’s rest.
