Tottenham’s Cristian Romero goes off in qualifier clash against Brazil; left thigh injury suspected

Romero arrived at the London-based club with an injury from Atlanta. It was a year-long loan move with an option of buying at the end that landed him in England.

Cristian Romero can’t seem to get his Tottenham season up and running. The Argentine has played just 7 Premier League games this season, and according to the tweet by Fabrizio Romano, he is going to be out yet again after suffering an injury in Argentina’s clash against Brazil in the CONMEBOL South American World Cup Qualification.

Romano, in his tweet, mentioned that the star had picked up an injury to his left thigh. The incident occurred in the 53rd minute of the match, the defender was forced out of the field after it. This is the second injury for Romero in a very small time period. He arrived at the London-based club with an injury from Atlanta. It was a year-long loan move with an option of buying at the end that landed him in England. The 23-year-old missed the start of the season as he was recovering from a knee injury. As a result, he couldn’t find his strides yet for the new club.

This injury has also increased the problems for Antonio Conte at the Spurs team, who is still searching for his first Premier League victory. The Italian arrived earlier this month, after the sacking of Portuguese coach Nuno Santo. Conte has only managed the team in two matches. He played the first game as in-charge of Tottenham in the UEFA conference cup against Vitesse, and his side emerged victorious in the 3-2 encounter. Later in the same week, Conte had his Premier League debut with Tottenham and could only procure 1 point in the away game against Everton. With a home game against Leeds coming up on Sunday, Conte will be hoping for a change in fate.
