Cristian Romero must repay Tottenham support but fans’ anger is misplaced

J He announced that Cristian Romero is set to miss Tottenham’s next three games, but Argentina’s return to form for the World Cup opener has infuriated some Spurs fans, who have accused the defender of missing out of commitment. It comes after the Argentine FA failed to get their Premier League stars released early for the tournament. Romero has missed three of Spurs’ last four games and Antonio Conte says he took a ‘big, big risk’ by playing him against Sporting Lisbon last week when the centre-half suffered from muscle fatigue. For Romero’s defence, his reluctance to take more risks with his body just before the tournament is understandable and, like all internationals, he has been placed in an odious position by FIFA. Competing in a World Cup is the pinnacle of most players’ careers and the fulfillment of a childhood dream. Asking them to jeopardize it by playing high-intensity club football until a week before the tournament is obviously ludicrous. Cristian Romero will not play for Tottenham again before the World Cup / Getty Images In the case of Argentina, it will be Lionel Messi’s last World Cup and therefore surely the best chance for his teammates to win it and immortalize themselves in the history of a country where football is like a religion of mass participation. Of course, Romero fears missing something as his body feels the tension. That said, Romero has started 12 of Spurs’ 19 games this season, and only 41 of 72 – or just 56% – since joining the club. He has been unfortunate with injuries but his involvement with Argentina has caused problems in the past as he has prioritized country over club. READ MORE In September 2021, he defied club orders to join the national team as Argentina were on the Covid redlist of destinations and then missed two Spurs games in quarantine. He also traveled to South America to join the team in March, despite his suspension. While fans should really direct their anger at FIFA for awarding the World Cup to Qatar and mocking the welfare of the players, it’s also reasonable to expect Romero to focus entirely on Spurs at from Boxing Day and begins to repay club support.
