Antonio Conte: Tottenham boss to undergo gallbladder removal surgery
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte will have surgery to remove his gallbladder on Wednesday, the club have confirmed.
The 53-year-old Italian was diagnosed with cholecystitis, an inflammation of the gallbladder, after becoming “unwell with severe abdominal pain”.
Spurs’ next game is at home to second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
The club have said Conte will return “following a period of recuperation”.
“Everyone at the club wishes him well,” Tottenham added.
Conte’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League table on 36 points, 14 points behind league leaders and north London rivals Arsenal.
