Skipp and Romero react to Tottenham’s defeat against Milan: “Hope is the last to die”

By Oliver Fisher -

Spurs centre-back Cristian Romero has admitted that his side ‘lack solidity’ at the moment after they lost 1-0 against AC Milan at San Siro last night.

Romero spoke during an interview with TNT Sports immediately after the first leg at San Siro, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“We are in a difficult moment with ups and downs and we lack solidity as a team. Hope is the last to die. We have a good squad and we can change things at home,” he said.

In truth, Romero is lucky that he will get to play in the return leg as he should have probably got a straight red card for a foul on Sandro Tonali. The Argentine flew into a challenge on the midfielder as he attempted to break down the left side, with excessive force and studs showing.

Meanwhile, Oliver Skipp made his first ever Champions League start in midfield alongside Pape Matar Sarr given the injury issues that Antonio Conte is battling in the midfield. He spoke to Sky after the match, with his comments relayed by

“We grew up in the match and had a couple of chances towards the end. They were dangerous on the counterattack, sometimes difficult to stop. It was a fairly even match. We need to create more chances in the second leg, but it’s not necessary to change too much.”
