Former Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has hailed his time at the club, despite being released this summer.

The Argentine stopper brought an end to a six-year stay at Old Trafford in the summer, with Dean Henderson replacing him as United’s number two.

He had been without a club for the last few months after being released but has now returned to Italy with Venezia.

His time at Manchester United could be considered something of a disappointing one, given he never really supplanted David de Gea between the sticks.

His numbers show that clearly, with him managing just 61 appearances in all competitions for the club despite being there for six years.

It wasn’t all bad, though, with Romero winning the FA Cup, EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League during his time in Manchester, something he looks back on fondly while assessing his time in England during a press conference following his latest move.

“Manchester United? I have always played in mid-table teams; going there was a big change,” he told Corriere Dello Sport.

“Playing at Old Trafford was incredible, but so is having to score three points all the time.

“My first thought was to link my name to a trophy, and I won the Europa League playing in the final.”
