Fabio Paratici, the Director of Football at Tottenham has stepped back from the role weeks after being handed a football ban by the Italian FA (FIGC) over alleged financial irregularities during his time at Juventus. The ban handed over to Paratici by the Italian FA over his involvement in Juventus’ recent corruption scandal was made global on Wednesday, March 29. The Athletic‘s David Ornstein reported that Paratici met with Spurs players on Friday, March 31, to inform them of the situation, before a joint decision was made with the club for him to step back from his duties from April 19, the date of the outcome of his appeal. Tottenham has now confirmed that they’ve parted ways with the Italian football executive. A statement on Tottenham’s website read; “This week – 29 March 2023 – the FIFA Disciplinary Committee announced a decision to extend the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) sanctions, relating to Fabio Paratici, worldwide. This decision was taken in advance of Fabio Paratici’s Appeal hearing against the FIGC sanctions on 19 April 2023, the result of which would then have been considered by additional stakeholders, including the Club. “Given FIFA’s unexpected ruling, the sanctions may now have multi-jurisdictional effect, although they are still related to the FIGC Appeal. In view of FIFA’s decision, Fabio has agreed with the Club that he will take an immediate leave of absence pending the outcome of his Appeal.” The ex-director of football is just one of 11 former Juve executives to be hit with a ban, while the club themselves were handed a 15-point deduction for the current Serie A season. This is coming at a time Tottenham is looking for a successor for Antonio Conte who was recently dismissed as the club’s manager.
