Tottenham loanee Giovani Lo Celso sends message to Cristiano Romero after Argentina’s World Cup win

Cristian Romero made Argentina’s 26-man for the 2022 FIFA World Cup squad but his Tottenham Hotspur teammate Giovani Lo Celso, who is on loan at Villarreal for the season, was not.

The Argentine midfielder missed out on selection due to a torn muscle bundle and sat out of the tournament as a result. It’s up for debate if he had been selected in manager Lionel Scaloni’s squad if he were fit.

But he was with them in the 2021 Copa America tournament and played against Jamaica and Honduras in two international friendlies in September, indicating that he is Scaloni’s good books.

However, he would have been closely following his team’s exploits in Qatar in the past month and following La Albiceleste‘s epic win in the final against France, sent a message to his club and international teammate Cristian Romero.

What could have been..

The former Real Betis midfielder posted a photo with Romero on his Instagram story and captioned it “Que grande sos”, which translates to “how big you are” in English.

He is even seen holding the former Juventus centre-back’s medal in the photo. There is no doubt that Lo Celso would be wondering what could have been had he not been injured in the build-up to the World Cup.

But the 26-year-old still has a lot of years ahead of him to get a couple more bites at the cherries. Currently, his focus should be on having another successful spell at Villarreal.

He was loaned out to them in the second half of last season and sealed a season-long loan this campaign as well. This shows that he isn’t in manager Antonio Conte’s immediate plans, but that doesn’t mean the Italian tactician’s mind cannot be changed.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

We can use a neat dribbler and creator in our midfield, and Lo Celso fits that profile. It is a crucial 2023 ahead of him and hopefully, he fulfills his potential and forces his way back into our first-team set-up which would save us a big headache in the transfer market.
