An update on the wellbeing of Tottenham Hotspur star Dejan Kulusevski has been provided on Friday evening.
Wide-man Kulusevski, of course, has been forced to sit out the Lilywhites’ last two fixtures.
This comes after the former Juventus talent picked up an altogether untimely hamstring injury whilst on international duty with Sweden late last month.
And Antonio Conte’s troops have since not fared overly well in his absence, slipping to a 3-1 defeat in last weekend’s North London Derby, before stuttering to a goalless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in their return to Champions League action on Tuesday night.
All across Spurs’ fanbase, in turn, were no doubt hopeful of Kulusevski marking his return to the pitch this weekend, when the capital giants make the trip to England’s south coast for a Premier League meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Such supporters, though, are set to be left disappointed.
This comes owing to confirmation that, in fact, ‘Kulu’ will not be part of Conte’s travelling squad bound for the Amex.
As per the reliable Jack Pitt-Brooke of The Athletic, the 22-year-old is yet to return to full training, and will therefore miss out once more on Saturday evening.
