“Vice-captain Romero is working hard to fill the void of Son Heung-min.”

This is what Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou said when asked about the absence of ‘captain’ Son Heung-min. Heung-min is set to hang up his Tottenham captain’s armband for over a month as the club looks to win the Qatar Asian Cup. While Postecoglou acknowledged the obvious void, he also recognized the value of vice-captain Christian Romero, who is eager to fill the void.

Speaking ahead of the FA Cup round of 32 clash with Man City on Sunday, Postecoglou said: “Obviously, we feel the void of Sonny. But it’s another opportunity. Romero is doing really well,” he said. “You can feel it around him. I know he’s not here, and I know what he does every day. 안전놀이터 Sonny would walk around the building and say, ‘Hey, how are you?’ And that’s what Romero is doing now,” he continued. “Even on the training field, his voice is much louder than it used to be. It’s a beautiful thing. We lost one of our leaders and there was a void, and we were waiting in the locker room, ‘Who’s going to step up,’ ‘Who’s going to step up,’ ‘Should I step up,’ and he did,” he said. “It’s the same with the other players. Even goalkeeper Vicario stepped up. There is a really good atmosphere among the players in the current situation. With our experience, the players understand the situation themselves. ‘Yes, we’re missing someone, but we’ll fill the gap, and until they come back, we’ll keep moving forward,’ I think that mentality has helped the team grow.”
