Perhaps a little surprisingly, Pape Matar Sarr has named Cristian Romero as the best player in training at Tottenham.

Romero’s lacklustre performances last season were a source of much frustration for Spurs fans, particularly since it was clear that the 25-year-old was extremely talented, given his performances at the international level and the start he had to his Tottenham career.

Much to the supporters’ delight, the 25-year-old has returned to his old self this season, putting in the sort of dominant displays that we see him do for Argentina.

Romero has also managed to control his aggression much better, which is perhaps the consequence of him now becoming the leader of the new-look young Spurs backline.

Having a reliable centre-back partner beside him in the form of Micky van de Ven has certainly helped the former Atalanta man, who is clearly held in very high regard by his teammates.

Pedro Porro labelled the defender as the best centre-back in the world on Instagram this week, and Sarr has now revealed that he is a cut above the rest in training.

The Senegalese midfielder told Footy Culture: “But for me, my best in training is Cuti Romero.”

Spurs Web Opinion

For Sarr to name Romero ahead of the likes of James Maddison, Son Heung-min and Yves Bissouma is certainly a big statement and it shows just how highly the Argentine is rated by his teammates.
