Conte is a huge asset to Tottenham, having long been regarded as one of the finest managers in world football, while he’s also a big character with his animated antics in the dugout.
Spurs fans will no doubt be hoping Conte can return as quickly as possible, while everyone in world football will be wishing the 53-year-old the best with his operation today.
Conte took over at Tottenham last season and steered the club to an impressive top four finish despite the team being in a pretty sorry state under his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo.
