Alasdair Gold reveals Cristian Romero does not shy away from tackles in Tottenham training
In the heart of North London, at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground, there’s a warrior who doesn’t hold back. His name is Cristian Romero, and he’s rapidly establishing himself as a defensive colossus for Spurs.
Alasdair Gold, the respected journalist who keeps his finger on the pulse of all things Tottenham, recently unveiled a fascinating aspect of Romero’s persona that sets him apart from the rest – his unwavering commitment to tackles during training sessions.
Romero’s journey in the white Lilywhite shirt has been a captivating one. A man possessed with the raw attributes of a world-class centre-back, he initially faced questions about his composure during his first couple of seasons at Tottenham.

The Argentine’s ascent reached a new peak when manager Ange Postecoglou bestowed upon him the title of vice-captain. This added responsibility, it seems, has brought out the best in Romero’s fiery temperament.
It’s not just Spurs fans who have taken notice of Romero’s transformation. His international compatriots, including the legendary Lionel Messi and other Albiceleste stars, have chimed in with their endorsement of the 25-year-old defender.
In a recent interview with the Mirror, Messi went so far as to declare Romero the best central defender in the world. That’s a huge praise coming from arguably one of the best players to ever play the game.
Alasdair Gold, a man who knows Tottenham inside out, has lent credence to Postecoglou’s words. He’s seen firsthand how Romero has seamlessly transitioned into the role of a thorn in the flesh for his fellow teammates during training.
“They used to hate training against Lamela. They all had to wear shinpads and everything,” Gold revealed with a wry grin. “Romero, I get the impression, isn’t any different.”
