There is a big infection and we are scared – Conte

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has expressed concern about the coronavirus crisis in the team.

Tottenham Hotspur

is facing a strange crisis in regard to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the club. A number of the Spurs’ players have contracted the coronavirus and there are some concerns that more players may be affected in the coming days.

Tottenham are set to face


in a Europa Conference League clash on Thursday, and UEFA laws state clearly that if a team has at least 13 players available, the game must be held.

In this regard, the Spurs boss Antonio Conte expressed his concerns at a pre-match press conference, saying the situation is dire and an action should be taken immediately.

"The situation makes me very upset because the situation is serious,"

Conte said.

"It's contagious and there is a big infection. Now we are a bit scared because tomorrow we don't know what will happen."

Quizzed on whether the club’s officials have contacted the Premier League to postpone Sunday's game against Brighton, the Italian tactician added:

"Tomorrow, who? Me? I don't know. Better me than a player for sure. It is not right for everyone because we have contact with our family when we come back home."
