Conte on Bentancur’s on injury: “The timing is longer than my expectation”

Antonio Conte has admitted that Bentancur will miss Spurs’ clash with Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Italian manager claims that he is unsure when the player is due to return and suggested that is a question for the club’s medical team.

Conte revealed: “Rodrigo, I think we have to wait, maybe today he is going to have an MRI to try to have an evaluation about his injury.

“For sure tomorrow against Villa, he’s not available.

“He had an injury in the World Cup and also the timing is longer than my expectation.

“This question is more for the medical department than me.”

Benatancur has been a key player for Spurs this season and missing him on the weekend is a major blow.
