He’s played 12 matches this season replacing the Spaniard in one League Cup tie, three FA Cup matches, one Premier League game and for nine of their 13 Europa League games.
Jose Mourinho claimed Romero was playing against Anderlecht at Old Trafford in quarter-final second leg to build on his continuity in the Europa League this season.
Speaking about his future, Romero insists he’s ready to show Mourinho that’s he’s working hard.
“When you get a chance to come to a massive club like Manchester United, even if you are aware that you might be coming initially as second choice keeper it is a challenge you want to take up. You grab it with both hands if you like,” he said.
“What I try and do is work hard in every training session each week to try and show to the manager that I am ready and to show to everyone that if I am called upon then I am in good shape and ready myself both confidence wise and ability wise to go out and not let the team down.
“You always hope to be the number one and it is something you work for every week. To come here was a great opportunity and challenge to accept.”
Romero has massively improved since his arrival at United and he’s proven has what it takes to guard in between the sticks in De Gea’s absence.
He still has a way to go if he wants to get in front of De Gea, but he’s clearly got the right mentality moving forward.
