Cristian Romero subbed off immediately after scoring in Tottenham vs Brentford




Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero was substituted immediately after scoring against Brentford at the Community Stadium on Sunday.

James Maddison delivered a clinical free-kick from the left and Romero headed it into the net, putting Spurs in the 11th minute. The goal was given after a VAR check but Ange Postecoglou, the club’s new manager this season, indicated an immediate substitution, asking the Argentine to come off.

Colombian centre-back Davinson Sanchez replaced him as a visibly upset Romero left the field.

Why was Romero substituted by Tottenham?

Romero had a clash of heads with Brentford winger Bryan Mbeumo in the 3rd minute and had returned to the field after a bired check by the Tottenham’s medical team. So, fans though he was replaced as a concussion substitute, following that clash and then a headed goal.

However, it was later officially confirmed that the substitution was not for concussion but as a pre-caution with an aim to prevent further injuries for the centre-back.

It is interesting to note that the FIFA World Cup winner had ended the previous season with an injury and did not play in their last Premier League game against Leeds United.

Tottenham, however, failed to maintain the slender lead with Brentford equalising from the spot, with Mbuemo getting his name on the scoresheet, while Yoane Wissa took the Bees in front with the second, 10 minutes later.
