Tottenham: Cristian Romero injury doubt for Leeds game as he awaits scans following issue on international duty
Cristian Romero is a doubt for Tottenham’s game against Leeds on Sunday after picking up an injury on international duty.
Romero started for Argentina on Tuesday night as they faced rivals Brazil in a South American World Cup qualifier. However, Romero had to be substituted off in the 53rd minute of the game after appearing to strain his leg.
The Athletic understands Romero will face tests when he returns to Tottenham and will be assessed ahead of this weekend’s game, which will be Antonio Conte’s first home Premier League match since taking charge of Spurs.
Romero has been a key player for Tottenham since joining the club in the summer from Atalanta. He has started seven games in the Premier League and played both of Conte’s first two matches in charge of the club — the Europa League clash with Vitesse Arnhem and the away game at Everton before the international break.
