‘Cholecystitis surgery’ Conte…”I thought it was the flu”
Assistant coach Christian Stellini explained the situation with manager Antonio Conte.
Tottenham Hotspur will play the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season with Manchester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) on the 6th. Tottenham is 5th with 11 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses (36 points), while Man City is 2nd with 14 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses (45 points).
Sad news came recently. On the 1st, Tottenham officially announced on the club’s homepage, “Director Conte has recently been in poor shape due to severe abdominal pain. He was diagnosed with cholecystitis, and will be on the operating table today. After a recovery period, he will return.”
The operation was successfully completed. Coach Conte later said on social media, “Thank you for sending me a message of support. The surgery went well and I’m already feeling better. It’s time to recover. I can’t wait to go back to the field with the team.”
As a result, Tottenham’s pre-press conference was held by head coach Stellini. Regarding Conte’s cholecystitis, he said, “We thought it was the flu. There were a lot of players who got the flu every week, so we thought Conte was the same. But after testing, we found out that it was a bigger problem.” 메이저놀이터
Conte is having a hard time personally this season. Coach Gian Piero Ventrone has died of acute leukemia. And before his shock was over, another tragedy struck. Sinisa Mikhailovic and Gianluca Vialli also passed away. The mental pain is bound to be great.
Regarding this, Conte said bitterly, “Definitely, this season is personally difficult. I know very well Ventrone, Mihailovic and Vialli. It is not easy to lose three people in a short time. It makes me reflect.”
In light of the circumstances, there was a view that Conte’s cholecystitis could be ‘stressful’. “I have no way of knowing. I don’t know if it has anything to do with stress. We have to live in the time we live in, and we have to accept the situation,” said Stellini.
Finally, he said, “When Conte returns, he will do what he normally does. For now, it is important that he recovers until he is 100% ready to come back.”
Meanwhile, manager Conte’s command against Man City is scheduled to be decided within 4 days after consulting with a doctor.
