Owen Hargreaves says Cristian Romero has everything during Spurs clash

Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport (broadcast on 13/9; 18:20) that Cristian Romero is a player who has everything, while the Tottenham Hotspur star has the potential to be one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League.

Romero is one of a number of potential game-changing signings for Spurs in recent years. The Argentinian arrived off the back of a brilliant spell with Atalanta.

He has not had everything go his way during his time in North London. Romero has been sidelined on a couple of occasions with injury. But when he has been available, he has been colossal for Spurs.

Reports previously suggested that some believe that Romero can be a transformative signing for Spurs. And there is absolutely no question that he has formed a superb understanding alongside Eric Dier at the heart of the backline.

And during their Champions League clash with Sporting on Tuesday, Hargreaves outlined just how impressed he has been by Romero – and suggested how far the 24-year-old could go.

“Cristian Romero, such a fantastic player. He has the potential to be one of the best in the whole league. He’s got everything, he’s aggressive. Good passer of the ball,” he told BT Sport.

Cristian Romero has everything

Romero’s arrival has the potential to be a real turning point for Tottenham. He clearly hates to be on the losing side. And with that, he is helping drive standards up in the Spurs defence.

Sometimes his temperament is called into question. And there may be times when he comes in for criticism for losing his cool.

But there is absolutely no doubt that Fabio Paratici produced a masterstroke bringing him to the club. And it would be no surprise at all if he does indeed establish himself as one of the very best in the division in the coming years.
