Cristian Romero names Lionel Messi as the most famous person on his contact list

Tottenham superstar Cristian Romero and his camaraderie with Lionel Messi are gaining a lot of attention in recent days. It looks like the Argentinian superstar has always had a liking toward the Spurs defender and that the feeling is mutual.

Messi recently named Romero “the best” central defender in the world. When one of the GOATs talks, all you can do is listen and if he has such praise for the Tottenham man, it shows what a special player we have.

The Argentinian centre-back joined Tottenham initially on loan from Atalanta before making his switch permanent. He has been one of our best players this season forming a formidable partnership with Micky van de Ven.

Leadership has helped Romero mature. Ange Postecoglou thrust him into a vice-captaincy capacity at Tottenham this season and it looks like recklessness and aggression has toned down since then.

There are many reasons to like Cristian Romero. He plays like he wants to belong, and every time he steps out on the pitch, he plays like he wants to leave his heart and soul out there. Sometimes, he does it way too much too.

When asked in a hilarious YouTube video where different players were put on the spot and asked who the most famous person on their contact list was, the Tottenham Hotspur man said “Lionel Messi”.

You are lucky Romero, very lucky! How we wish we all had Messi’s contacts on our phones. The former Barcelona superstar is arguably one of the best players to grace the football pitch and is certainly a very famous person.

Cristian Romero will now be back at Tottenham as club football looks to resume after spending the international break with none other than Messi. He will be crucial to sustain the impressive start the club have had this season.
