Tottenham manager Antonio Conte claims that although team doctors were “very concerned” about his health, he is now “quite energetic” as he rejoins the team.
After temporarily making a comeback for two games, 53-year-old Conte underwent gallbladder surgery last month. He has missed Spurs’ last four games while recuperating in Italy.
For his team’s Champions League last-16 second-leg matchup against AC Milan on Wednesday, he will be back in the manager’s seat.
The Italian remarked, “I still need to gain weight, but aside from that, I’m fine.
“I’m in a nice mood. I am quite energized.
“I’ll attempt to channel my energy into my players since this is a crucial game for us,” the coach said.
Man United reportedly has faith in their summer signing of Kane.
Tottenham’s addition of a Beyonce concert violates the license.
After losing at the San Siro last month—penultimate Conte’s game in charge—Tottenham must recover a 1-0 deficit to get to the quarterfinals.
In his absence, Tottenham defeated Chelsea and West Ham but fell to Championship team Sheffield United in the FA Cup semifinals and suffered a defeat to Wolves on Saturday in the Premier League.
After the match against Sheffield United, I wanted to return, but the doctor stopped me and told me to listen to him and wait, Conte remarked.
“I wanted to return earlier, but I had to obey the doctors’ wishes because they were really concerned after the game against Milan. As a result, I returned on Sunday.
“I feel good right now, and I had a lot of energy yesterday throughout the training session.”
When Conte first came back after a week, he claimed to have “under-evaluated” the effects of the operation.
Added him: “I attempted to use video to be in constant contact with my team and players while I was away, but being in person is entirely different.
“I want to thank the entire staff. I am aware that being separated from the coach wasn’t simple for the players. Now that I’m back, I’m overjoyed.”
Conte’s return, according to forward Son Heung-min, will provide Spurs a “great lift” against Milan.
The manager sitting next to me is great, Son said.
“The staff performed a terrific job when he wasn’t there, but yesterday we could feel his vigor and excitement once more.
“He’ll give us a jolt and incredible enthusiasm when he’s on the touchline,” said the coach.
