After Tuesday night’s international match between Argentina and Peru, Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero departed the game complaining of soreness in his right ankle. This raised some concerns.
Spurs should be concerned about the player’s condition because it was the player who requested to be substituted at halftime.
Romero is currently cited by La Voz, despite the fact that the Argentine national team refrained from commenting further on the matter.
The player revealed that ‘his right ankle had swollen too much’, but didn’t make a big thing out of it, sounding like he was trying to prevent himself from getting seriously injured ahead of his return to Tottenham.
“That’s why I decided to come out at half-time, as we also have an important home game with Tottenham Hotspur on Monday against Fulham. But this is a team of animals (Argentina) and whoever comes in is sure to be a cracker.”
Romero was a starter in both of Argentina’s games during the international break, as the World Cup champions beat Paraguay 1-0 and Peru 2-0.
It now seems it will be Tottenham who’ll make a deeper analysis of his situation and decide whether he’s fit to be in Ange Postecoglou’s side for the next match. Fighting to stay on top of the Premier League table, Spurs will be playing Fulham on Monday evening
