Fabio Paratici leaves Tottenham Hotspur
After losing an appeal on a global ban from football, the Italian has resigned from his post at the Lilywhites
It has been announced that Fabio Paratici has resigned from his position at Tottenham Hotspur with immediate effect. This comes after the Italian failed in his appeal against a two and a half year global ban from football.
If rumours are to be believed the club will be looking for Paratici’s replacement from outside of the club as opposed to promoting from within. Whoever does get appointed will be working very closely with the club’s soon to be new Chief Football Officer Scott Munn.
Munn is set to join Spurs on 1st July, with him set to leave his position as CEO of the City Football Group. He also has previous experience in this role at A-League (Australian Top Flight) side Melbourne City.
Paratici leaves after almost two years at the club, having joined Spurs back in June 2021 after leaving Juventus.
In Spurs’ statement on Wednesday morning, Club Chairman Daniel Levy said:
“This has been a stressful time for Fabio and his family. We wanted to ensure that we allowed for due process to be followed. Fabio is a man who lives and breathes football – we wish him well.
“As outlined in our year end results, we started several months ago to restructure our football operations and last week announced the appointment of Scott Munn as Chief Football Officer to head up all the departments. We shall continue to strengthen our football functions over the coming months.”
Following retirement from playing football, Paratici first joined Sampdoria as head of scouting in 2004, and after 6 years at the club he joined Italian giants Juventus as head of technical affairs and as sporting director in May 2010.
Paratici is noted for being a key part of the successful transfers of Andrea Barzagli and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017. 2018 saw the Italian appointed as sporting director, before becoming the club’s managing director in 2020. On 26th May 2021, and after 11 years at the club, Paritici departed the Turin giants.
Whilst the person to take over from Paratici is uncertain, Spurs’ search for a new manager is becoming more intriguing and exciting in equal measure, especially with some of the names being linked with the North London club in recent days and weeks.
Ruben Amorim, Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique and Vincent Kompany have all been linked with the Lilywhites. Kompany has been very successful with Burnley, guiding them to promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking and the Clarets look set to win the Championship league title.
Luis Enrique is best known for his highly successful tenure at Spanish giants Barcelona, where he won 2 LaLiga titles, 3 Copa Del Rey and of course the Champions League in 2015. Nagelsmann has had a rapid rise and most recently managed Bayern Munich.
Ruben Amorim is also a rising star having guided Sporting Clube de Portugal to their first Portuguese top flight league title for 19 years in 2021.
