Tottenham Hotspur initially signed Cristian Romero on a loan deal from Atalanta in 2021 and made his stay permanent a year later.

The centre-back has completed three years at the north London club and insists the recently concluded season was his best so far.

Romero was a guest on DSports’ Cómo Te Va, and talked about several topics including the Copa América, his time at Tottenham and his future plans, and his comments are relayed by Olé.

On his spell at Spurs, he said: “I think I’ve gone from lowest to highest. Having gone to the Premier League has already been a very important achievement for me because I knew I could grow a lot.

“The first season I had ups and downs, injuries, the adaptation wasn’t easy. The second I adapted and I think this, which was the third, was one of my best seasons I’ve ever done.”

The Argentina international has three more years left on his current deal and has made it clear that he isn’t thinking of leaving the Premier League side in the summer window. His focus is now on the upcoming Copa América with the national team.

“The truth is that I’m fine but for now I’m not thinking about that [transfer], I’m thinking about preparing myself these days to get to the national team in the best way possible, which is the next step I have,” Romero explained.

“The things that come up at the moment are obviously always analysed but I’m not thinking about the future, I’m thinking about the national team. Now that I have the Copa América, I will always try to take the national team to the top and then we will see what happens.”

Ange Postecoglou’s debut season at Tottenham started on a bright note but he couldn’t help his side maintain it throughout the course of the campaign. Spurs finished fifth in the table, and Romero insists he’s happy with his life in London.

“I’m very happy to be in this present, even though group achievements haven’t been in the best or we didn’t expect to end like this. But also, at the group level for the coach’s first year, he has been good in all lines. We have to keep wanting more. Individually, I’m very happy for this beautiful season that I’ve had,” he added.
