‘I was shocked’: World-class star reveals his experience playing against Tottenham man

By Saikat -

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has heaped praise on the Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero.

The two faced each other during their time in the Italian league before Romero joined the North London club. The former Atalanta defender put on an impressive performance against the Nigerian international during his time in the Italian league and Osimehn believes that the Argentine international is the most difficult defender he has faced in his career.

The 24-year-old Napoli striker hailed the intensity and speed of the Tottenham defender and revealed that he was shocked when he came up against Romero.

Victor Osimhen: “Cristian Romero was really the most difficult defender I have faced. The first time we met, I was impressed by his speed. I experienced very, very intense duels against him. I was shocked.”

The 25-year-old Spurs star is undoubtedly one of the best in the Premier League and he has established himself as a key player for club and country. Romero helped Argentina win the World Cup last year and he has been phenomenal for Tottenham this season. The North London outfit are currently on top of the league table and they will be hoping to challenge for the title this season.

Romero’s contributions at the back will be crucial to their hopes of sustaining the title challenge until the end of the season. The defender is at the peak of his powers right now and it remains to be seen whether he can help Tottenham end their wait for a trophy this season.

The praise from Osimhen, who is one of the best strikers in the world, will certainly come as an encouragement to the defender, and he will look to improve on his impressive start in the coming months.
