Kulusevski may not return for Spurs until after World Cup

Dejan Kulusevski may not play for Tottenham again until after the World Cup ends in December, says manager Antonio Conte.

The midfielder, 22, has not played for Spurs since the win over Leicester in September after injuring his hamstring on international duty with Sweden.

Conte says Kulusevski, who is on loan from Juventus, has since suffered a setback in his recovery.

“I think we have to wait a bit of time to see him with us,” Conte said.

“Yeah [I am worried] because his recovery was going well and then one day the situation worsened.

“Then when this type of situation happens, you have to restart. You need time, but we have the medical department to face injury situations and they have to solve the situation in a short period because you know if you are good to solve the situation in a short period, it means points in the table.”

Kulusevski and Sweden missed out on a place at the World Cup after losing to Poland in a play-off in March.
