Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is reportedly ‘seething’ at club chiefs after finding out his absence from the Premier League squad via social media.

Romero’s career has continued to stall in recent months amid a series of personal struggles at Old Trafford.

Indeed those battles have come after his most recent United appearance in last season’s Europa League.

Chief among them, though, is his absence from the Red Devils’ Champions League squad this term. United have followed that up by also overlooking him for their Premier League squad.

But while Romero could accept his European snub, the Daily Star claims that he is ‘seething’ at his Premier League absence.

The newspaper says that the 33-year-old did not learn of the decision in person, but via social media. As such, he has decided to take action.

Romero has ordered talks with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and executive-vice chairman Ed Woodward.

Sergio Romero TEAMtalk

The double-pronged squad snub caps off a miserable period for Romero at United. The stopper’s problems reportedly began when he did not get a look in amid David de Gea’s form last season.

De Gea made high-profile errors towards the end of the last campaign but kept his place. As such, Romero reportedly felt ‘demoralised’ at the development.

Furthermore, Dean Henderson’s arrival back at Old Trafford has pushed him down to fourth choice in the pecking order. Indeed Romero is now fourth choice behind De Gea, Henderson and Lee Grant.

Romero’s tales of woe continue



Therefore, the Argentina international tried to engineer a move away from the club in the transfer window. But after a move to Everton failed, his wife spoke out strongly against United chiefs.

Overall, the Daily Star claims that Romero is ‘said to be baffled and angry’ at his situation.

The goalkeeper will discuss his next steps with Solskjaer and Woodward, however those negotiations will not take place until next week.

Romero is currently self-isolating after returning from Argentina to the UK.
