EPL: Romero snubs Van Dijk, names world’s best defender

Tottenham Hotspur star, Cristian Romero, has changed his opinion on the world’s best defender, snubbing Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk in favor of Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez.

Romero, who played a key role in Argentina’s 2022 FIFA World Cup win, was asked prior to the tournament about who the best defender in the Premier League was.

At the time, the 25-year-old picked Van Dijk followed by national teammate Martinez.

However, Romero has now made a U-turn on his previous claims, ignoring Van Dijk in favour of his compatriot Martinez as the best defender in the Premier League.

He told Amazon Prime: “Licha (Lisandro Martinez). He, for me, is by far the best defender in the world.”

Martinez joined Manchester United from Ajax last year.

He has been a key player under Man United manager Erik ten Hag.
