Tottenham boss Conte breaks silence after being rushed to hospital for surgery



TOTTENHAM boss Antonio Conte has broken his silence after being rushed to hospital.

The Italian, 53, underwent gallbladder surgery earlier after suffering from severe abdominal pain.

Tottenham have confirmed that he has been diagnosed with cholecystitis, which is inflammation of the gallbladder.

And that led to him going under the knife to have his gallbladder removed.

Conte has now taken to Instagram to provide an update on his health to his followers and the Spurs faithful.


He wrote: “Thank you for your lovely messages, my surgery has gone well and I’m already feeling better.

“Now’s time to recover, I can’t wait to get back on the field with the team.”

It remains unclear how long Conte will be off work for.

But he could miss Tottenham’s crunch home clash against Manchester City on Sunday, with assistant Cristian Stellini likely to take charge.

The Londoners are currently fifth in the Premier League table.

They are three points off Man United and Newcastle, in fourth and fifth respectively, who also each have a game in hand.

But Spurs go into the second half of the season with two new additions.

Arnaut Danjuma was loaned from Villarreal despite being on the verge of joining Everton.


And he’s already made an impact by scoring on his debut against Preston in the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Tottenham left it late to loan top target Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon.

The wing-back will join on a permanent deal in the summer for £35million.

And his arrival saw Matt Doherty’s contract terminated before the Irishman joined Atletico Madrid for free.
