Manchester United players would be disappointed by the treatment that the board and the coaching staff have given Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero
Several Manchester United players have expressed disappointment at the treatment given to goalkeeper Sergio Romero, sources told ESPN.
Romero has fallen into Old Trafford’s pecking order after Dean Henderson’s return, but his departure was ruled out on the final day of the transfer window due to United’s insistence on receiving at least £ 10 million for the Argentine’s pass. .
The 33-year-old, a popular member of the team, is set to return to Manchester after a hiatus in Argentina, but will likely not have many opportunities to play for the first team until at least January, while the number one David De Gea and Henderson share responsibilities in the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup.
It comes just months after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shocked United’s locker room by omitting Romero from the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the Europa League semi-final against Sevilla last season, despite the fact that the Argentine international participated in most of the matches in both competitions.
Romero has also been left out of the Champions League squad after Solskjaer chose 37-year-old Lee Grant as the third goalkeeper on the list submitted to UEFA. It has prompted United locker room members to express sympathy for Romero’s situation and many feel he has been unfairly frozen after five years at the institution.
Everton were eager to sign Romero on the final day of the window, but were unwilling to pay what United demanded and instead opted for Swedish international Robin Olsen on loan for a season from Roma to compete. with Jordan Pickford.
Failing to leave Old Trafford, Eliana Guercio, Romero’s wife, posted an emotional message on her official Instagram account.
“It is a very sad day because he wanted to have the opportunity to go to another club,” he wrote. “He has worked hard every day for this because he has given everything for United and I think his chances of playing for United have dropped.”
“This doesn’t sound good to me. It doesn’t seem honest, professional, or serious that they have to let it go. I’m very sad about this.”
