Sergio "Tiny" Romero returns to Italian football

Sergio “Chiquito” Romero was made official this Tuesday as a reinforcement of Venezia FC in Serie A in Italy, where he will seek to regain prominence after the last seasons without activity at Manchester United in England.

The 34-year-old missionary he was released from the English team last July but played his last game more than a year ago: It was in August 2020 in the 1-0 victory over Danish Copenhagen in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.

Although he never managed to establish himself as a starter since he signed with Manchester in 2015, “Chiquito” remained the number one in less important competitions, such as the Europa League, the FA Cup or the EFP Cup. For example, with him in goal, United won their last major title, the 2016/17 Europa League with the Portuguese José Mourinho on the bench.

But the arrival of the Norwegian Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer ostracized Romero, with some peaks of destrato in the season 2019/2020. The Argentine had been starting in three competitions at that time: the Europa League, the FA and the EFL with even surprising numbers: 17 games, 4 goals against, 13 unbeaten hurdles. But at the time of final instances, the Norwegian bet on the Spanish with the bad luck that he was left out of the three competitions immediately. It is worth remembering that De Gea was a great United investment and, for many years, the highest paid player in the entire Premier League. Just now, 10 seasons after his arrival, he is at a good level.

Now, the record keeper of the Argentine National Team, will return to Italian football after seven years after signing as a free agent and having passed a routine medical examination. His contract is until June 2022.

Among the brands that he conquered with the National Team, the “hero” in Brazil 2014 has the maximum number of appearances for the position, with 96 games, and holds the record for unbeaten in World Cups, with 485 minutes without conceding goals (2014). Both formerly belonged to Ubaldo Matildo Fillol.

The starting goalkeeper today is Luca lezzerini, 26, architect of the promotion of the team in the reduced of the Series B 2020/21. As he was injured in the last games, the Finn has been tackling Niki Mäenpää, 35, who signed for the club earlier this year.
