What expert Scott Minto said about Cristian Romero when Tottenham drew with Manchester United
The World Cup winner’s performances have been called into question since he returned from Qatar as he has been simply pitiful ever since.
From hasty tackles to unnecessary red cards, mindless decision-making and little defensive awareness, Romero has looked like a shadow of himself for part of the ongoing campaign.
As Tottenham center midfielder Cristian Romero failed to cover himself in glory against Manchester United, Scott Minto realized his mistake and brought him to his attention.
“It’s too simple. It’s like the first goal at St James’ Park. There are three Spurs players, someone has to stop the shot. Make a block. Romero is too busy trying to make sure his hands are behind his back,” he said in talk sport.
“Just get close to him! Get tighter! It’s wonderful from Sancho, but it’s a basic defense”.

There is clearly a great central defender in the Argentine, as he reflected in his debut season in the Premier League.
However, as pundit Scott Minto put it, Cristian Romero was too disappointing for Tottenham yet again in their crucial clash against Manchester United.
While Romero’s defensive teammates are often blamed for perhaps dragging him down, he appears to be the weakest link in the back line at present.
For a player who possesses this much quality, especially in what is a defensive setup geared for pure defenders like him to thrive on, he needs to up his showings and be quick.
