look at romero now It’s not just the famous Premier League players with Tottenham. But consecutive winners against Argentina, Copa America, final, World Cup: all in the bag. You wonder what Belgrano’s hierarchy thought of Romero’s success.

“Ultimately, these things are valuable to make everything stronger in your head,” he said when asked if he recalled that moment when lifting the World Cup this winter.

“If I don’t go through that. I would be worse This is a good time for me to grow up. Now it’s a good memory for me.

“To play here in the Premier League, to be with Argentina, to win trophies with Argentina. These things are all from the past.”
Still, there were some critics – more to his character than to his talent. For example, Argentina’s antics en route to the World Cup were questioned. Especially wildly celebrated with the Netherlands and France.

Featured 2 outstanding images: Romero joins his national team-mates in heading their Dutch counterparts seconds after their quarter-final penalty shoot-out victory. And Romero yelled at Kylian Mbappe’s hat-trick hero after Lionel Messi led Argentina to a 3-2 win over Argentina in the final.

When asked if people were joking with Argentina too much, Romero quickly replied, “Yes, because people only see pictures.

“People don’t think about what they said before that we got here. in a game against Holland They talk too much before the game. And we are frustrated with that.

“They say we lack respect. But that’s not true. You can understand what will happen next.”

When asked about the incident with Mbappe, Romero replied: “In the game against France. It was the same, Messi scored (Argentina’s third goal) and it all came out. It’s not the most beautiful thing in the world. But it all came out.

Romero is now facing another big game on Sunday. which is the biggest game on Tottenham’s calendar. Don’t be surprised if the mood comes through again from the Argentine defender.

“It’s always there. It is what it is,” Romero said when asked where his aggressive style of play came from. “The most important thing in me

“I think there are some people out there who think I’ve done something wrong. The aggression – in my opinion – is a slight exaggeration. The way I play keeps me where I am. which is one of those things.”

Romero spoke Italian in this interview. Didn’t even mention Arsenal’s name once. He often mentions the names of Tottenham clubs, Belgrano, as well as former clubs Atalanta and Genoa.

But while describing Mikel Arteta’s side, it’s ‘loro’ (they).

“If I had to say anything about them. They have a strong squad,” said Romero. “The players and the manager have been together for a long time.

“They are at a pivotal moment in what they have been building over the years. And we see that they are doing well now. For us, we are in a position that still has to grow.

“This game is important, we have to win. We need a result, it will be difficult, but I believe in our team, between us we are always motivated. It’s not just Derby. Even if it’s a game very important game

“The Premier League is difficult. There are so many strong teams that you play in that you have to give 100 per cent. If not, you cannot play in this kind of weather.

“We know there have been a few ups and downs this season, we have to say, but we hope to win. We will do everything to win this game at home.”
