Following his incident with Marc Cucurella during Tottenham Hotspur’s weekend match against Chelsea, Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, asserted that Cristian Romero does not fear anyone.
Ever since he joined Spurs, Romero has been a favourite of the supporters. Even though he plays with tremendous skill, his fearlessness even when the ball is not in play is what fans adore about him.
The greatest story of the evening was the altercation between Conte and Thomas Tuchel at the conclusion of the London derby last weekend, but Romero wasn’t too far behind in the news himself.
The Argentine pushed Cucurella to the ground by seizing his hair at the very end of the game, right before Harry Kane scored an equaliser. The VAR determined that he did nothing improper, but Conte has asserted the Argentine needs to understand situations like those better.
Conte said this about the 24-year-old while speaking about him to Football London: “About Cristian, I communicate with him a lot.
He is undoubtedly a physically powerful player. He has no fear of anyone, but he must be very concentrated at all times in order to comprehend the issue, strive to constantly be better, and improve the circumstances that require improvement.

But I do talk to him and my teammates a lot about being strong, always in a positive way.
SportEarly View: Romero is truly fearless and unafraid of anything or everyone on the football field.
The 24-year-old defender is maybe Tottenham’s best. Since joining Spurs in the summer of last year, he has been fantastic, although he occasionally loses his composure.
Romero’s actions against Cucurella had the potential to be very costly. He may have been dismissed, which would have prevented Tottenham from earning a point at Stamford Bridge.
Romero needs to focus on that aspect of his game, and Conte will make sure he does in the upcoming weeks and months.
