EPL Conte to miss Tottenham vs Chelsea clash. Antonio Conte, manager of Tottenham Hotspur, is not expected to play when Chelsea visit in the Premier League the following week.
Cristian Stellini, his assistant coach, has said he does not anticipate seeing Antonio Conte return in the dugout for the London Derby.
After undergoing gallbladder surgery, the Italian head coach is recuperating in his own country.
Stellini anticipates that Conte won’t make it to the Chelsea game after missing his team’s 2-0 victory against West Ham on Sunday.
“No, I do not anticipate Antonio returning for Chelsea; but, I do anticipate Antonio returning the week following Chelsea.
“We also have the FA Cup game, so maybe not Chelsea, but we don’t know,” Stellini added. “If Antonio feels okay and can handle some stress without experiencing any discomfort or unusual feelings, Antonio will be back.”
