he father of Tottenham defender Cristian Romero has said the club want the defender back ‘quickly’.
Romero made six starts for Argentina in their World Cup-winning campaign in Qatar and appeared in almost every minute of action from the third game of the group stage.
It was good that he missed Spurs’ last four Premier League games in the build-up to the tournament, with the 24-year-old having already had time to put on the country.
Antonio Conte, however, had moved to minimize suggestions before the break.
Romero is currently with the rest of the winning squad in Argentina, where their victory parade through Buenos Aires was cut short due to security concerns.
“He won’t have much time for fun. We’ll see how it goes. But they already want him back in England,” Victor Romero told La Voz.
Their passage through the Argentine capital was abandoned for safety reasons after a number of fans tried to jump on the bus as it passed under a bridge, with images on social media showing a supporter falling from the rear of the vehicle.
The players were taken by helicopter out of fear for their safety before the bus reached the public square and the obelisk monument.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are back in action on Boxing Day with a trip to London rivals Brentford.
