Antonio Conte sends message to Tottenham fans after successful surgery to remove gallbladder
Ottenham boss Antonio Conte has posted a message of thanks to supporters after a successful operation to remove his gallbladder.
It was confirmed early Wednesday that the Italian, 53, was suffering from severe abdominal pain and had been diagnosed with cholecystitis.
After the surgery, Conte provided an update via her personal Instagram account.
He wrote: “Thank you for your lovely messages.
“My operation went well and I already feel better.
“Now it’s time to recover, I can’t wait to get back on the pitch with the team.”
It’s unclear how long Conte will be out of action with assistant Cristian Stellini taking charge of the first team during a recovery period for the head coach.
Spurs host Manchester City on Sunday before facing Leicester the following weekend and a trip to AC Milan for the return of their Champions League campaign.
According to the NHS, it can take up to eight weeks to return to full activities after gallbladder surgery.
