Tottenham insider reveals more on 'big blow' to Romero as rehab plan explained
Cristian Romero will be working with Tottenham on his transition to England while he’s ruled out with an injury.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
On Wednesday, journalist Jonathan Veal quoted Antonio Conte as saying Romero’s injury is “a bit serious” and more so than countryman Giovanni Lo Celso.
It was also confirmed Romero will have a scan later this week to discover when he is likely to return.
The defender suffered a hamstring injury in Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Brazil on 16 November.
Wenham insists Romero will be working on other aspects of his life behind the scenes while sidelined.

“Obviously, it’s a big blow to lose him,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“I have said on here multiple times that I think he is a really quality player and he has shown that.
“The good thing is, while he’s injured, Romero won’t be doing nothing.
“He will be doing other things to help him settle in like improving his English and improving his relationship with his teammates and the club.
“Obviously, when you are injured you don’t just sit at home doing nothing.
“He will be in at Hotspur Way every day working with the physios.
“There are ways that he can use his time beneficially.”
Romero has made 13 appearances for Tottenham since joining the club from Atalanta.
His loan move will be made permanent next summer.
