He will have another scan in the coming days to uncover the full extent of the problem.

But new Spurs manager Conte, speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Europa Conference League clash at NS Mura, said: “Honestly, I think his injury is serious. But we have to wait.

“I don’t know now is the time he needs to recover. Surely his injury is more serious than Giovani Lo Celso or Dane Scarlett.

“We have to wait for the next scan and then the doctor can provide more information about the date of his recovery.”

Lo Celso was also injured playing for Argentina while strike prospect Scarlett injured his ankle in training.

But Conte is bringing all of his stars to Slovenia – even as he is planning to make some changes to his team.

“All the available players will come to us,” he said. They have to be ready to fight Mura.

“I said on Sunday that I needed to rotate because there were players who were a bit tired because they played a lot of games with the national team and we also worked a lot in the last two weeks.

“There are other players who need game time.

“For us, this competition is important. We want to take this schedule seriously and we want to move on to the next step.

“Definitely I will do the rotation because personally, I need to know more players because there are players I need to meet in a match and a competition.”

Conte says Tottenham must wait 10 days to discover the extent of Cristian Romero’s injury while Lo Celso will also miss the Leeds clash
