Alasdair Gold has said he is sure that Cristian Romero will be keen on playing against West Ham United on Wednesday.
Romero picked up an adductor injury in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea two weeks ago and has subsequently missed the clashes against Wolves and Nottingham Forest.
Antonio Conte provided a positive update about the centre-back in his press conference on Friday, with the Spurs boss revealing that he expects the Argentine as well as Oliver Skipp to start training with the squad this week (Football.London).
The 24-year-old’s return will certainly be welcome for the Lilywhites, who face a tough derby away at the London Stadium on Wednesday.
Gold has now taken to social media to reveal that Romero was ready to play against both Wolves and Forest despite his injury.
The journalist added that if the centre-back manages a couple of days of training under his belt, Antonio Conte might be tempted to start him against the Hammers.
I'm sure Romero will want to play against West Ham, as he did against Wolves and Forest. You'd think by Wednesday, if he can get a day or two of full training under his belt, Conte will be tempted to throw him back in as long as the muscle is showing no adverse reaction.

I do not think it would be wise to take a risk with a key player like Romero at this stage of the season. As much as I think we need him back for the clash against West Ham, I would rather see him returning to action after he is 100 per cent fit.
Antonio Conte’s decision might come down to whether there is a possibility of the defender aggravating the injury, which can never be ruled out when it comes to muscular problems.
