Fabio Paratici, the Italian managing director of Tottenham Hotspurs resigns from his position as he could not appease the Italy’s top court in an appeal against ban. His ban was extended internationally on March by football’s ruling body FIFA, after his former club Juventus found him guilty of false accounts. He has been on the top for Juventus since 11 years.
“We wish him all the best”
Tottenham sports director Daniel Levy wished him good luck for future endeavors. He was heard saying, “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”.
A day after his appeal against the ban was rejected by Italian Football Federation, his club confirmed his departure in an official statement, stating the ban “prevents Fabio from fulfilling his duties”. Although Paratici is waiting for an official hearing, he denies any wrongdoing in the Juventus financial fiasco.
Chairman Daniel Levy also said, “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,” citing about the problems the London club has faced in this year, following Conte’s explosive press conference and his sacking.
