Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte has confirmed that defender Christian Romero will miss the rest of the season due to a thigh injury.
Romero was not selected for Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Thursday night, as Conte said the 24-year-old was unavailable because “he was hit in the thigh at the end of the game against Liverpool”.
Romero, who signed a summer contract, has become a significant figure behind Tottenham this season. After being sidelined for three months with a hamstring injury, the center-back was a mainstay in his starting line-up, impressing with his impressive style of play.
To the question about the absence of the football player of the Argentine national team, Conte added:
“To have guys like Sanchez and Rodon in the team, players who, if they do not play every game, stay focused, work very hard. Then, when there is a situation where they have to play, they show that they are in fantastic shape.
“It’s right to praise Sanchez for the game he showed tonight.”
“In recent days we have realized that Romero had a serious injury. He finished this season because there are only two games, he does not have time to recover for these two games.”
Sergio Regillon is the only player who will not return to the club this season, and Conte has confirmed that he is “absent for the rest of the season with ten days left”.
Tottenham have a quick turnaround as they aim to push for a place in the top four. They will meet Burnley on Sunday afternoon after the victory over their rival Arsenal in North London on Thursday evening.
Harry Kane, who scored two goals against Arsenal, referred to the limited period of rest, telling the journalists: “We have to make sure we are ready.
“It’s a quick turnaround, but it was nice how we controlled the game like we did in the second half today. I think that was enough to save some energy.
“It’s just about recovery, sleeping well, eating well, preparing well. Probably during more matches, looking at the opponent rather than on the pitch.
“We have a week left until the end of the season, so there is no excuse not to go out there and give everything.”
With two games left in the league, Tottenham are one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
