Dan Kilpatrick has revealed some brilliant news regarding Tottenham centre-back Cristian Romero.
Despite initially being projected to miss 4 to 5 weeks due to a hamstring injury sustained against Everton, Romero has made a remarkable recovery.
In today’s report from Evening Standard, Kilpatrick disclosed that the Argentine defender is not only back in full training but is also in contention to play in the upcoming match against Manchester United this Sunday.

Whether Dragusin is thrown straight into the first-team remains to be seen. Also, a late assessment to determine whether Micky and/or Romero are fit to start is expected to be made closer to the game.
