Tottenham fans accuse Cristian Romero of feigning injury after linking up with Argentina squad

The 24-year-old has seen his commitment to the Spurs cause called into serious question


Supporters of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur have taken to social media in their numbers on Sunday evening, to direct their frustrations at star defender Cristian Romero.

Stopper Romero, of course, has spent the last couple of weeks on the sidelines.

Owing to what was described as an ongoing muscular issue, the former Atalanta star failed to feature in any of Spurs’ last five fixtures.

The latest of these came just yesterday, as Antonio Conte’s troops staged yet another remarkable comeback, en route to a 4-3 downing of Leeds United in north London.

As alluded to above, though, some amongst the Tottenham faithful, evidently, are of the opinion that Romero’s recent absence, in fact, did not come as a result of an injury.

Instead, after taking to social media to unveil a photo of himself in training with the Argentine national squad, the 24-year-old has been widely accused of exaggerating his fitness concerns of late.

This, of course, comes with Romero expected to play a central role for an Albiceleste outfit with sights firmly set on World Cup glory over the coming weeks in Qatar:
