Assistant manager Cristian Stellini has provided a team news update to journalists who have attended Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-Wolverhampton Wanderers press conference from Hotspur Way this afternoon.
The Italian was conducting media duties once again today in place of head coach Antonio Conte who is still recovering from surgery after having his gallbladder removed after experiencing severe abdominal pain at the start of last month.
Tottenham are looking to bounce back and restore some pride after the surprise FA Cup fifth round exit at the hands of Championship outfit Sheffield United on Wednesday evening which for many, was the club’s best chance of silverware this season.
Now, the pressure is firmly on the club to secure a top four finish this season in what is going to be a pivotal week in their campaign with AC Milan the visitors to north London next Wednesday for the second leg of the Champions League round of sixteen knockout clash.
Stellini has revealed that Emerson Royal, who missed the defeat at Sheffield United is fit again after a knee issue and there are no fresh concerns.
