Cristian Romero has been speaking about his future at Tottenham Hotspur

Under Ange Postecoglou, Cristian Romero has declared that he is not considering leaving Tottenham Hotspur and feels that he has had one of his best seasons to date.

The World Cup winner, 26, responded to being named one of Postecoglou’s vice captains at the beginning of the season with one of his most reliable campaigns since joining the team from Atalanta in 2021. Romero was a regular player for Spurs during the season, starting 34 games, scoring five goals from the back, receiving just one suspension (three games for a red card against Chelsea), and missing just two Premier League matches due to injury.

The Argentina international stated in an interview with Olé that he is not considering leaving the team despite the strange transfer link away. The Argentine was a guest on DSports’ Cómo Te Va.

“To be honest, I’m doing OK. I’m not thinking about that [a transfer] right now; instead, my focus is on getting ready for my next step, which is to join the national team as soon as possible,” he stated. It goes without saying that current events are always examined, but my focus is on the national team, not the future. I will always aim to lead the national team to the summit now that I have the Copa America, and then we’ll see what transpires.”

Even though the team did not quite reach the expectations they had set for themselves by finishing fifth, Romero, who has three years left on his contract, said he is loving life at the club and had praise for Postecoglou’s impact and progress made in his first season at Tottenham.

“I’m very happy to be in this present, even though group achievements haven’t been the best or we didn’t expect to end like this, but also, at the group level for the coach’s first year, he has been good in all lines,” he stated. “We must never stop wanting more. Personally, I’m overjoyed with this lovely season I’ve been in.”

The defender acknowledged that, despite a challenging few seasons, this one under the Australian coach is among his best to date.

“I believe I’ve moved up from the lowest to the highest. Being in the Premier League has already been a huge accomplishment for me because I knew I could still develop a lot,” he remarked. “I had ups and downs, injuries, and a difficult time adjusting during my first season. I think this, the third season, was one of my best to date, along with the second that I adapted.”

In the past, Postecoglou has stated to that Romero’s wish to compete in the Olympics will be left up to the club, and he personally hopes the player will focus on what he thinks will be a successful season for the team. More emphasis has been placed on those who wish to attend the Olympic Games this summer, which follow the Copa America, since Nicolás Otamendi, an experienced player, is expected to be among the team of overage players. However, Romero acknowledged that Tottenham and the clubs will have the final say.

“Being the national team, one always wants to be there, but the final decision rests with the clubs in this case,” he stated. “We all wanted to go, but not all the clubs considered giving in. For the younger audience, Otamendi’s visit is crucial because he serves as a role model.”
