Cristian Romero has been praised as the best player in the world by Tottenham Hotspur star Pedro Porro.
For Ange Postecoglou’s team against Fulham last night, the two defenders started, and they played well. Romero in particular was exceptional, and Porro appears to be very pleased with his teammate’s work. He said the following on Instagram.
Pedro Porro says Tottenham’s Cristian Romero is the best in the world
Tottenham has always had a great offense; over the past few seasons, however, their defense had become increasingly problematic.
The hiring of top-notch defensive coaches like Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte by Daniel Levy did not succeed either, and it put Spurs in a dreadful situation.
In the summer, Levy adopted a new strategy and appointed Postecoglou. He radically changed Spurs, not just in the attack but also in the defense.
In nine games this season in the Premier League, Tottenham has only given up eight goals. That is the division’s joint-best record, and Cristian Romero has been instrumental in helping them get there.
The 25-year-old World Cup champion from Argentina has excelled this year. Together, he and the quick Micky van de Ven have created a fantastic connection that has made Spurs a highly reliable team.
Romero started for Tottenham Friday night against Fulham, and he once again impressed. He assisted in maintaining a clean sheet, and Pedro Porro seems pleased with his performance to the point where he declared the Argentine the finest player in the world on Instagram.
He wrote: “Best in the 🌍 mi cutiiiiii!!”
Spurs star Romero has become a different player
Cristian Romero, a standout defender for Tottenham, has always been excellent, but he previously lacked control.
Many questioned if the North Londoners could ever rely on the Argentine because of his style of play. The Argentine’s carelessness and lack of discipline have cost Spurs in the past.
Romero, however, appears to have improved as a player recently. He is still highly aggressive, but his aggression is much more under control than it was previously, which makes him an excellent defender.
The next London derby pits Tottenham against Crystal Palace. Spurs should expect to keep another clean sheet if Romero plays well.
