Important setback for Tottenham
Tottenham Hotspur is going through a tough time. Despite being in fourth place in the Premier League, their eliminations from the FA Cup and the Champions League have been a cold shower for a team in decline. A few days ago, Conte left the team by mutual decision, leaving Stellini as the interim head coach until the end of the season, aided by Ryan Mason. Their first problem is the injury to Emerson.
The Brazilian was injured with Brazil in a friendly against Morocco, and will undergo knee surgery, which will keep him off the pitch for six weeks. This is a significant setback for Tottenham in the final stretch of the season. Now, Stellini will only have Pedro Porro as an option for the right-back position, whose importance has increased in recent matches since joining the Spurs in January.
