Conte ready to unleash ‘fantastic’ Tottenham talent v Sporting CP




Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero is available to play tonight, according to Gaston Edul.

The TyC Sports reporter says the Spurs star “has nothing” in terms of injury, just muscle fatigue.

As a result, Romero can play for Antonio Conte’s side against Sporting CP in the Champions League, Edul added.

The Argentina international missed Tottenham’s squad against Newcastle United at the weekend.

Antonio Conte cited fatigue as the reason Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg weren’t in the squad.

And ahead of the Sporting clash, Conte said the duo remained in doubt.

“About Pierre and Cuti, tomorrow morning we will see,” the Tottenham boss told the Spurs media team on Tuesday.

“Today they had half a training session and the situation was not so positive.

“But we’re talking about two important players for us and it’s fair to wait until the end because tomorrow’s game is really important.”

Edul seemed positive about Romero’s fitness, according to TyC Sports video he shared on his Twitter feed.

“Good news – Cristian Romero has nothing (wrong with him),” he said.

“He has muscle fatigue, Conte can use him in the Champions League.”

“Potential to be one of the best”

Good news if true – Romero is a superb player who is making a huge difference for Tottenham.

“Cristian Romero, such a fantastic player,” Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport after Spurs’ last meeting with Sporting.

“He has the potential to be one of the best in the whole league. He has everything, he is aggressive. Good ball passer.

Fingers crossed he is fit and can help Tottenham change their form – they need it.
