Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Sergio Romero performance v Swansea

Sergio Romero

The Argentine was in poor form against The Swans yesterday.

The main transfer window story this summer has been the one involving David De Gea at Manchester United. Ever since Iker Casillas left Real Madrid for Porto the chances of the United stopper making a move to The Bernabeu became more and more realistic.

The keeper has been left out of the Premier League squads for the start of the season as Louis van Gaal does not deem him in a fit state of mind to play for the club until the window shuts.

In his place has been Sergio Romero. The Argentine stopper arrived from Sampdoria on a free transfer and has been struggling in club football in recent years, although has been a hit at international level.

Today however he came unstuck.

His kicking for United was terrible and he is hardly the most inspiring of presences. Then he let in a goal that De Gea would have saved with ease.

Bafetimbi Gomis was slotted through and firstly Romero was slow off his line to a ball he might have collected on the slide. Then, when Gomis shot at goal, he insisted on saving with his hands – diving over the ball and conceding when De Gea would have simply saved with his foot.

United’s goalkeeper situation is far from sorted and if De Gea leaves it is fair to say that United fans will not be happy with Romero as their number one, if you take the Tweets from yesterday’s game into account…
