Hope you are doing well, In this post, we will tell you about What Happened to Antonio Conte and Ryan Mason? and what Cristian Stellini has to say. Keep reading the article till the end, and your all questions will be answered.
Cristian Stellini, who is the assistant manager of Tottenham, has told what happened to Antonio Conte before he had to have surgery to get rid of his gall bladder.
Conte got sick on Sunday with severe stomach pain while he was at home in Italy. He had been there for a few days after his team won the FA Cup at Preston. After being diagnosed with cholecystitis, the Spur’s head coach had his gallbladder taken out on Wednesday. He will now take some time to heal.
Stellini said that everyone thought it was just a normal thing when Conte started to feel sick during Saturday’s game at Preston.
“We thought it was more flu. We have had a lot of players with flu every week so we thought that but when he had scans to check what he was feeling they realised it was a bigger problem and they had to do what they did,” he said.
Conte has said that this season has been hard for him because three close friends have died and his family still lives in Italy, far away from him. Stellini was asked if this problem could have been caused by stress.
“There is not a way of knowing. I don’t know if there is a relation between these things,” he added: “We have to live the time we live, and we have to accept the situation. Maybe more Antonio has to accept the situation. It’s not easy for him not to be here with us but health is more important than everything.”
In consultation with his surgeon, Conte will decide on Saturday if he will be at the home game against Manchester City the next day. Stellini will probably have to take on more responsibility again, just like he did in the dramatic Champions League win in Marseille earlier this season.

“We will [pick the team] together, because Antonio is not here to feel the training and everything so I will explain it to him and we will decide it together,” he said.
“No, I don’t think [he will need looking after]. When Antonio comes back, he will do what he normally does. It is important at the moment to recover and to come back when he is ready to do 100 per cent his job.”
Stellini also said that if Conte isn’t at this weekend’s Premier League game, there won’t be any communication during the game. He also said that the coaching staff hasn’t been live-streaming training sessions, but instead giving them to him after the fact.
“Not during the training, he can watch the training after. We record the training so he can watch the training and analyze the training but only after,” he said.
When asked what kind of coach he is, Stellini said, “I’m an assistant, and because I’m an assistant, I have a special relationship with the players.” So I can use the fact that I know them well to make them do their best.
“This is the kind of coach I can be for the next week and the next game. I cannot change myself because I am in charge. I am the same person who will try to push the players to give their best, but it is important to be the same person.”
Stellini has never lost when filling in for Conte. He did this for three games when Conte was suspended during Inter’s run to the title in the 2020/21 season. This season, though, Stellini said he had a lot of help from another coach in the game against Marseille.
“It was a great experience and we want to live the same experience. I was not alone in that moment. I had Ryan Mason next to me and I have Ryan also with me now,” he said. “He’s very important for the team, very important for me and he’s very important for the club so I’m not alone. I have all the staff with me. I remember after that game that Harry [Kane] spoke about how important the staff were and that some players felt more responsibility to speak among the team.”
Stellini disagreed with the idea that Conte’s return to Italy meant Spurs had lost their leader.
“I don’t know if this is correct that we don’t have leaders. There are many types of leaders, not only one type. Yes, we know very well Antonio is a big leader but there is not only the leader who has a fire and transfers this to others,” he said. “
There are many kinds of leaders, and I think our team has many of them. We only need to show this kind of leadership, and if someone needs more time, that’s fine.
“I think we can [create a siege mentality]. Also because a problem like Antonio in this moment and the fact Antonio is not here creates more responsibility for everyone and that can create a mentality different from the past. The players can realize also they can be better in a difficult moment like this.”

Last month, Spurs lost 4-2 at City after having a 2-0 lead at halftime. Stellini said that both teams would benefit from playing each other again so soon.
“It is an advantage for both teams, it is not only for us. They are a big team, a big beast for everyone and we have to do our best to try to challenge them and win the game. We will do our best for sure,” he said.
“You have to be perfect if you want the possibility to win this type of game against this type of team. You have to be perfect in their box and in our box, so in this position of the pitch you decide the game and we have to be perfect in both.”
Stellini has led training all week with Mason instead of just stepping in on game day, so this will be a new situation for him. However, he has played in many big games and season-defining games with Conte.
“This is not how things usually go. I’ve never been in a similar situation, so I can’t give you a good example. Maybe in Inter Milan, we had many games to change the season. He said, “There are regular games and games that can change the season.”
“When I was at Inter Milan, we had a chance to move on against Barcelona one year and Shaktar the next. We didn’t make it, but we had a very important game against Juventus, which we won, and after that, everything changed. Every time, we fight to reach that goal, and a big game can make this happen.
“We’ve seen it done before, and we saw it done last season. At one point, things changed, and we realized that we could now reach the goal. This might be the time. We try our hardest to reach this goal and change the weather.
“We do a deep analysis of every team, so if you only look at the result, you have an answer. But if you do a deep analysis like we did because it’s our job, you can feel how each one is a big test.
“Maybe the result isn’t always what you expect, but Manchester City is the same as it has always been. When a big animal has a problem, you have to worry more because they react. We know it will be hard, but we think we can do it.”
