Cristiano Romero is an uneasy ticking time bomb, but his skills are top-notch.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Chelsea 2-0 in the 25th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the night of the 26th (Korean time). With this victory, Tottenham (45 points, 14 wins, 3 draws, 8 losses, 46 gains and 35 losses) was placed in 4th place.
Oliver Skip and Harry Kane, 토토사이트who scored, are in the spotlight, but the defenders should also be praised. From the side, from Ben Davis and Emerson Royal, who showed high involvement in offense and defense with excellent performances, Romero, who blocked Chelsea’s attack by showing a tremendous defensive range, was great. The British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ focused on Romero on the team of the week.
Romero kept bumping into Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling, but he wasn’t pushed back at all. He didn’t give in to the opponent’s provocation and faced it as it was, almost creating a dangerous situation, but he didn’t get sent off like Manchester City. With Romero, Tottenham’s defense was strong. Romero, who has competition, speed, and cover, showed a solid defense and contributed to the build-up, including 4 successful long passes.
The quality and stability of Tottenham’s defense depends on whether or not Romero is present. Romero can cover Eric Dier’s speed and agility problems, and he fights the opponent’s striker and prevents the flow. The BBC’s Gareth Crook, who selected Romero as the most influential player in Tottenham’s defense,
said, “I’m a huge fan of Romero. The center back from Atalanta is the best player Tottenham have recently recruited.
England’s ‘The Boot Room’ also said, “Romero won the battle against Chelsea players. He suppressed his boiling temper and helped the team. His fiery personality is Romero’s flaw. His reckless and unnecessary rough play also caused difficulties for Tottenham. “But that’s only part of the game. Romero’s ability is great and he’s going to be a decisive factor in helping Tottenham reach the top spot.”
