Victor Osimhen is one of the best strikers in Europe at the moment. However, recently in a conversation, the Nigerian striker admitted he was “shocked” when he faced off against Cristian Romero, a midfielder on the Tottenham Hotspur staff.
“Cristian Romero is truly the toughest defender I have ever faced. The first time we met, I was impressed with his speed. I went through some very, very intense duels with him. I was shocked,” the main striker of the Napoli club shared.
The two faced each other three times during Cristian Romero’s time with Atalanta. The Argentine’s speed, agility and ability on the ball make him a top centre-back. The 25-year-old defender is the mainstay of the current Tottenham defense.
Victor Osimhen is showing remarkable progress in the past few seasons. Last year, he and Napoli won the Serie A championship. Therefore, the praise that the Nigerian player gave to Cristian Romero has even more weight.
