Fans react as Tottenham confirm Fabio Paratici appointment as Director of Football

As confirmed on the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Fabio Paratici as the Managing Director, Football, with effect from 1 July 2021.

Paratici had become available only recently after he quit the post of sporting director at Juventus, having completed a successful eleven-year stint in Turin. The 48-year-old was responsible for some brilliant transfers for Juve over the years, having signed the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Dani Alves, Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo among many others.

As per the club’s statement, Paratici “will be responsible for managing and developing the club’s sporting operations at the club, facilities and footballing infrastructure.” Upon announcing the deal, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy spoke glowingly of the Italian.

“I’ve known Fabio for a number of years and he brings with him a wealth of experience in scouting, youth and football operations. He has an outstanding track record in assembling competitive squads. As we all know, Juventus have been a highly successful club and he has been a major part of that. I am delighted that he will be heading up the football side of the Club as we look ahead to next season.”

Paratici also expressed his excitement for the new chapter in his career with Tottenham, saying:

“I am thrilled by this fantastic opportunity and I thank the Club and the Chairman for the trust in me. Tottenham is one of the top clubs in the UK and in Europe with an ambitious long-term plan. I will dedicate all myself to this new venture and look forward to working with the management team to write a new and hopefully successful chapter in the Club history.”
