‘Outstanding’: Postecoglou thinks 25-year-old has been simply ‘brilliant’ for Spurs this season

Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou has praised central defender Cristian Romero for his impact this season.

The comfort of Tottenham Hotspur’s back line this season has been greatly aided by Cristian Romero.

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, came to the conclusion while chatting with SPURSPLAY following another triumph.

On Saturday afternoon, Tottenham traveled to Kenilworth Road in an effort to defeat Luton Town and earn another three points.

Spurs had an early lead but struggled to score before Yves Bissouma was sent for two bookable offenses.

The 1-0 victory for Tottenham was the result of a goal from Micky van de Ven, surprising the Tottenham supporters who likely assumed it simply wasn’t going to be their day.

Ange Postecogolou praises Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero

A strong defensive effort by Tottenham to withstand pressure from Luton Town was a significant factor in the team’s triumph.

Romero truly distinguished himself in that sense by establishing himself as a true leader in Tottenham’s defensive unit.

Romero contributed to Spurs’ clean sheet with 12 clearances, 5 aerial duels, 2 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 1 important pass.

Romero put up yet another excellent effort; under Postecoglou, he has had a really strong season debut.

Romero has already received plaudits from the Spurs manager for a “outstanding” performance against Luton, saying that he has been “brilliant” the entire season.

Romero’s presence on the back line, according to Postecoglou, is assisting players like Guglielmo Vicario, Destiny Udogie, Micky van de Ven, and Pedro Porro in adjusting to life in the Premier League.

Postecoglou remarked, “Yeah, he was terrific and has been all year. He’s part of the reason I think the rest of that back four and Vic have felt so at ease. “I just think having a World Cup champion beside them gives them feel that little bit stronger themselves,” said Pedro. “It’s Destiny’s first year in the Premier League, it’s Micky’s first year, it’s Vic’s first year, Pedro is still just beginning his career. He’s been amazing the entire year,” he continued.

Romero maturing before our eyes

Romero’s last academic year was rather up-and-down.

The 25-year-old was undoubtedly not at his best in the second half of the previous season, despite helping Argentina win the World Cup.

Romero’s worst moments were occasionally on display; his hasty defense finally put his team in grave peril.

Romero had to stand up for Spurs this season, especially after he turned out offers from other clubs during the summer transfer window.

Postecoglou made a bold choice over the summer, making Romero a vice-captain at Tottenham.

Tottenham are clearly benefiting from Romero’s apparent growth in their new leadership position.
