Harry Kane names Spurs star as the most aggressive player he has come across

Harry Kane has been tasked with building the perfect defender using attributes from players around the world, and when it comes to aggression, there’s no one he would want more than his former Tottenham teammate, Cristian Romero.

Since joining Tottenham back in 2021, Romero has developed into one of the most impressive centre-backs in world football.

His defensive awareness, comfortability on the ball, and penchant for a big tackle make him a formidable opponent. And, this season, he has even added goals to his game, registering five Premier League goals this term (Transfermarkt).

In the past, his aggression and passion have spilt over and seen Romero earn a place in the referee’s book multiple times for silly challenges and reckless behaviour. The Argentine picked up three red cards in his first two seasons at Spurs, but has just one this year.

Indeed, since being named the vice-captain at Tottenham, it seems Romero has worked hard on that side of his game to ensure he is leading by example and not letting the team down.

Is Cristian Romero the most aggressive defender in the world?

Still, that aggression has not disappeared, it is simply more fine-tuned and is now a valuable part of his game. That’s why former Spurs man, Harry Kane, opted for Romero when it came to adding aggression to his hypothetical ideal defender.

Speaking to Goal on TikTok, Kane chose to combine John Terry’s football IQ and Raphael Varane’s pace for his ultimate defender, but he looked to his former club for aggression.

When asked who is the most aggressive defender, he replied: “Romero. Cuti Romero.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It’s pretty hard to argue against Romero being the most aggressive defender around, but he definitely uses that part of his game to his advantage nowadays. I’ve been so impressed with the way he’s turned that around this season.
