Arsenal have wished Tottenham manager Antonio Conte a ‘speedy recovery’ after the club confirmed he would undergo surgery to remove his gallbladder.
Antonio Conte, 53, has been diagnosed with cholecystitis and will undergo surgery to remove his gallbladder, according to a club statement.
Conte recently suffered from severe abdominal pain and his diagnosis now requires surgery.
Tottenham stated, “Antonio Conte recently became unwell with severe abdominal pain. Following a diagnosis of cholecystitis, he will be undergoing surgery to remove his gallbladder today and will return following a period of recuperation. Everyone at the Club wishes him well.”
In response to Tottenham’s tweet, Arsenal were quick to wish their rival a speedy recovery:It’s unclear when Conte will return to coaching, but he is expected to miss Tottenham’s upcoming Premier League game against Manchester City.
Cristian Stellini, Conte’s assistant, may step in if needed. Tottenham also have league matches against Leicester, West Ham, and Chelsea on the horizon, as well as the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash against Milan at the San Siro.
Conte has won 37 of 66 matches with Tottenham since his appointment in November 2021, averaging 1.82 points per game, his lowest since he was manager of Siena in 2010.
