Spurs: Antonio Conte drops Cristian Romero injury update

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a major injury boost concerning Cristian Romero.

What’s the latest?

In recent comments cited by the Tottenham Hotspur website, Antonio Conte revealed that the 23-year-old centre-back, who suffered a hamstring injury while on international duty with Argentina back in November last year, is on course for a return to first-team football later on this month.

Speaking about the defender’s recovery, the Spurs manager said: “Everything is going in the right way with Cristian. For us, he’s an important player. It was a pity that he suffered a serious injury with his national team. We hope for him to recover very soon. I hope to have him available at the end of this month.”

Fans will be buzzing

Considering just how impressive Romero has been since his £42.5m move to Spurs last summer, the news that the centre-back looks on course to make a return to action this month is sure to have left the Tottenham Hotspur faithful buzzing.

Indeed, over his seven Premier League appearances so far this season, the £31.5m-rated defender has helped his side keep one clean sheet, as well as making an average of 1.7 interceptions – the most of any Spurs player in the current campaign – 2.3 tackles, 2.4 clearances, 40.7 passes and winning a whopping 69% of his duels per game.

These returns have seen the £29k-per-week man average a rather extraordinary SofaScore match rating of 7.15, ranking him as Conte’s fifth-best performer in the top flight of English football.
