Conte to miss Tottenham vs Chelsea clash
Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is set to miss Chelsea's return to the Premier League next week.
His assistant coach, Cristian Stellini, has admitted he’s not expecting to see Conte back in the dugout for the London Derby.
The Italian head coach is in Italy recovering after gallbladder surgery.
Conte missed his side’s 2-0 win against West Ham on Sunday, and Stellini thinks he will miss the Chelsea game too.
“No, I am not expecting Antonio to be back for Chelsea, but I expect Antonio will be back the week after Chelsea."
“We also have the game in the FA Cup, so maybe not Chelsea, but we don’t know, because if Antonio feels well and he can live through some stress without some pain or feeling strange, he will be back,” Stellini said.
