Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister now reacts to Cristian Romero’s red card in Tottenham vs Chelsea

Liverpool star Alexis Mac Allister has had his say on Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero getting himself a red card against Chelsea on Monday.

Spurs suffered their first defeat of the season in the Premier League this week – a 4-1 hammering against Mauricio Pochettino‘s Blues. The result, however, would’ve been very different had Romero not done what he did.

Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister reacts to Cristian Romero’s red card in Tottenham vs Chelsea

Tottenham star Cristian Romero seemed like a man on a mission on Monday to get sent off.

The Argentine has always had a reputation for being reckless, but since the start of this season and up until Monday, he seemed a changed man.

However, in the game against Chelsea, Romero, as Joey Barton called him, became a ‘mad man’.

The 25-year-old could’ve easily been sent off for a kickout at Levi Cowill. He got lucky with the VAR, but instead of learning his lesson, he made another reckless challenge inside the box on his compatriot, Enzo Fernandez.

Speaking to another Argentine about the incident, D Sports Radio asked Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister about Romero’s challenge on Fernandez.

The Liverpool man replied: “All I saw was the photo. We all know Cuti, he has aggressiveness to score”.

Ange Postecoglou needs to have a word with Romero

This isn’t the first time Romero has done something like this, is it?

The Argentine also got himself a needless red card against AC Milan in the Champions League last season. That infuriated Spurs fans, so much so that Jamie O’Hara branded him as a ‘liability’.

Romero needs to learn his lesson, and we’re sure Ange Postecoglou will have had a stern word with him in the aftermath of the game.

Whether he changes now, however, is anyone’s guess.
