first_imgEx-Liverpool No1 James a fan of Man Utd keeper Romeroby Paul Vegas7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Liverpool goalkeeper David James admits he’s a fan of Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.Romero is expected to replace United No 1 David de Gea in goal for Sunday’s clash against rivals Liverpool after the Spaniard picked up an injury while on international duty.”I’ve analysed him and there are a few keepers who are highly-rated who just put the ball out there in a general area.
