Report: Why Antonio Conte was fuming with Spurs defender Romero against Leicester

Tottenham saw off Leicester City yesterday as they maintained their push for the top four alongside rivals Arsenal.

Goals from Heung-Min Son (2) and Harry Kane ensured that Spurs saw off the Foxes to maintain their challenge, after previously going two games without a shot on target. It was much more like it from Tottenham, and Antonio Conte will have been delighted with what he saw.

Of course, it’s not all about attacking football and one player who really impressed yesterday was Argentinian defender, Cristian Romero. The summer signing has been excellent for Spurs since he arrived, with those at the club delighted with their capture.

However, per a report from Football.London, even Romero isn’t free from Conte’s fury at times. Towards the end of the first-half, Conte was spotted being absolutely fuming with Romero’s decision to sell Eric Dier short with a pass. The Italian coach was apparently stood arms out in anger, before stomping back to the dugout and complaining further to his coaching staff.

Of course, Romero’s overall performance meant that this was a one off for the defender. However, it does show that Conte demands consistently high standards.

Sometimes, a signing just works for a club and Tottenham appear to have got one of those with Cristian Romero.

The defender has been nothing short of brilliant since coming into the team and keeping his fitness levels. At times, he looks like a player more than capable of playing for any team in world football. Tottenham will do well to keep him for the length of any prospective contract, that’s for sure.

In regards to Conte, his confusion and anger at Romero only shows what he demands. Those minor mistakes can be costly, especially when you are chasing the top four positions.
