Romero shines for Tottenham

The video surfaced just days after Romero staged an impressive performance for Tottenham against West Ham United.

The Argentine was heavily involved in the clash as Tottenham stunned West Ham 2-0 to break into the top four.

Emerson Royal opened the scoring for Spurs in the second half before Heung-Min Son came off the bench to seal the win for the north Londoners.

Spurs' win was enough to help them leapfrog Newcastle United for the fourth spot.

How Spurs fans welcomed Conte

Sports Brief earlier reported that Spurs fans praised Conte's commitment after he returned to England a week after his surgery, labelling him a warrior.

It was apparent he ignored medical advice and looked not like his usual energetic self on the touchline in the two games he managed.

Their joy has now been short-lived as he returns to his home country with no specified return date.
