Conte rules out Romero for Wolves match, but good news on Oliver Skipp


According to report, Tottenham defender Cristian Romero has been ruled out of the upcoming Premier League campaign with Wolves, Spurs boss Antonio Conte admitted it on talkSPORT this Saturday.

Playing the full 90 minutes in Tottenham’s first two games of the Premier League campaign against Southampton and Chelsea, the Argentina international sustained a muscle injury late on in the dramatic 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

When speaking about injuries, there was better news regarding Oliver Skipp, who has been out since pre-season due to a knee injury. Midfielder Oliver Skipp is closing in on a return following a fractured foot, with Conte saying he would be running soon.

“I hope for this player to be a bit lucky, because since January he started to have a problem. We’ll have him available when we have a lot of games to play,” Conte said.

The other person we’re still not sure if they’ll be available for Wolves is Antonio Conte himself. Conte was involved in a heated touchline row with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel on Sunday after Harry Kane equalized for Spurs in the last minute. Both managers received red cards after the final whistle of the 2-2 draw and have been charged by the FA with disorderly conduct. But the Italian still hopes to be on the touchline when his side takes on Wolves.

“It’s right to stay in my place,” Conte said. “I repeat, after this type of situation you can learn a lot, but at the same time from many situations I was good to keep calm and don’t have an excessive reaction.”

Spurs had a good start with 4-1 beat Southampton in their league opener before being held to a 2-2 draw at London rivals Chelsea last weekend and are one of six teams on four points. Then, Tottenham will kick off against Wolves in the Saturday early match.
