Some Spurs fans on social media have been left dismayed after Antonio Conte admitted Cristian Romero is not expected to be fit for until 2022.

Romero picked up a hamstring strain while on international duty with Argentina last month and has not featured since his return.

Following multiple scans, Conte confirmed in his press conference on Wednesday that the 23-year-old’s injury is serious and that he is not likely to return to action before January or February of next year.

This comes as a huge blow for Spurs as the Argentine was showing signs of settling into the Premier League in the weeks preceding his injury.

The former Atalanta man will be a big miss for Conte’s men, particularly given the team’s busy schedule over the next month.

The news did not go down with Tottenham fans on social media, many of whom questioned how the backline would be able to cope without Romero.

This is a massive blow and could not have come at a worse time. However, it is a good opportunity for Japhet Tanganga to have a run of starts and show Conte what he can do.

I am convinced that Tanganga will start ahead of Sanchez at right-centre-back as the 22-year-old is a better fit for the role.

I believe the only reason Sanchez got the nod to start against Burnley (before the game was postponed) was because of Burnley’s physicality and direct approach.

  1. If we bring in Antonio Conte to get this team winning things and instilling a winning mentality you have to back him and do the things he wants done or there is absolutely no point in bringing him in. Levy get rid of the players he doesn’t think good enough and let him sign the quality signings he wants, we’ve done it Levy’s way for 20 years, which hasn’t worked. Back Conte or sell up. This has to be ENIC’s last chance.
