Revealed: Fabio Paratici vetoed a move for Paulo Fonseca as new Tottenham manager

In an interesting bit of revelation, it has come to the fore that Fabio Paratici was the reason for Tottenham not appointing Paulo Fonseca (Calciomercato h/t Express). Disagreements over their transfer policies led to the Spurs sporting director vetoing a move for the former AS Roma manager.

It has been around two good months since Tottenham are without a full-time manager. Ryan Mason took care of things in an interim capacity for the last month of the campaign as Spurs continued their search for their next manager.

Julian Nagelsmann, Hansi Flick, Erik ten Haag, Antonio Conte, Brendan Rodgers, and many other managers were linked with the job. However, none of them came close to taking it as Spurs continue their search. (h/t Express)

Last week was perhaps a dramatic one in every sense with Spurs seemingly close to appointing Paulo Fonseca as their new boss. While those talks broke down, the reasons behind were unknown. (h/t Express)

Now, as Calciomercato (h/t Express) can point out, Fabio Paratici was the main reason for Spurs not closing the deal with Fonseca. It has been claimed that one of the main issues they disagreed on was transfer priorities. Fonseca wanted to improve the side’s attack while Paratici wanted to add to the defence. Another issue was Fonseca’s start date. He wanted to start on July 5th and Spurs wanted it to be at a later date of 10th July.

Those reasons saw Paratici cancelling Fonseca’s appointment and turning towards Genaro Gattuso, which also collapsed. For now, Spurs’ search continues as they are slowly running out of decent options to take up the job.
