Romero has seen very little playing time this season

Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero has hailed Manchester United coaching staff Silvino Louro and Emilio Alvarez and has explained the importance of the goalkeepers to work with them to develop further.

The Argentine international was signed as a free agent by the Red Devils' former manager Louis van Gaal. During the saga involving David de Gea's collapsed move to Real Madrid last summer, the South American was fielded between the posts for the first few fixtures by the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager.

However, De Gea's move to the Spanish capital club did not take shape and he signed a new contract with the 20-time English champions to continue his stay at Old Trafford. Even after Jose Mourinho's arrival at Old Trafford, the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has still retained his position as the first choice player in the No 1 position.

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager fielded Romero in two matches this season and he has impressed for the Premier League club. Despite the lack of opportunities at United, the 29-year-old remains happy to continue his development with his current employers.

In addition to this, Romero also said that getting a few opportunities to feature in the first team will only boost his chance of being selecting for the Argentinian national team.

Happy with the coaching at United

"Broadly speaking, we are working really well together. We have two coaches, Silvino Louro and Emilio Alvarez, and I think that myself, David de Gea and Sam Johnstone are working really hard alongside them," Romero said while speaking to United's official website.

"As each week goes by we are all feeling more and more comfortable with each other as a group. I think you can see this in David when he’s playing – he feels good and relaxed in himself – and that our work and training during the week is very good.

Will wait for my chance, says Romero

"Similarly with myself, you could see when I've played that I’d been training hard and waiting for my chance to play and that when that did happen, I was 100 per cent ready. As I said, I reckon a great job is being done with our training and that can only be a good thing."

"It’s also good as it means that the people within the national team set-up are also aware that you have played and done well which means that you are in a better position to be selected for the upcoming qualifying games."

Romero started against Northampton Town in the League Cup and also in the Europa League clash against Zorya Luhansk.

Both the matches ended in United's favour and he has conceded once in these two fixtures. The Argentine goalkeeper is yet to concede from an open play this season.
