Fabio Paratici steps back from Tottenham role after FIFA extend ban


abio Paratici will take an “immediate leave of absence” from his role at Tottenham, pending the outcome of his appeal against a worldwide ban.

The club’s managing director had his ban from Italian football, for his role in the alleged financial irregularities scandal at Juventus, extended by FIFA earlier this week, just hours after he appeared in a video for Tottenham giving an update on the managerial situation after Antonio Conte’s departure.

However, Paratici will now step back from his role until the result of his appeal hearing, which is due to take place on April 19.

A Tottenham statemen 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.”
