Tottenham players are unhappy with presence of Fabio Paratici in the dugout

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur players are said to be unhappy with the seating arrangement as senior staff members like Fabio Paratici and Steve Hitchen are placed in the dugout alongside the players on the bench during matches.

Paratici, who was appointed by Daniel Levy as the new director of football of Spurs earlier this summer, has orchestrated some brilliant moves for the club as he has brought in the likes of Cristian Romero, Pierluigi Gollini, Bryan Gil, Emerson Royal, and Pape Matar Sarr. 

Moreover, he also managed to keep Harry Kane at the club and also tied down Heung-Min Son to a new deal at the club. Steven Hitchen, like Paratici, is a part of the senior staff members and assumes the role of technical performance director at the club. However, Paratici and Hitchen’s presence in the dugout during the games has not gone down well with the players at the club.

According to a source (h/t The Sun):

“It just doesn’t sit right with the players. The substitutes on the bench don’t feel they are able to speak freely among themselves with those guys sitting next to them”.

The source went on to mention how it is not just the players on the bench but the entire team that does not appreciate this.

“The players as a whole don’t like it when the two of them are on their feet shouting at the match officials or the team.”

However, the Spurs players will have to make do with this adjustment for a couple of more weeks as the Premier League requires all players and staff members to be in the “red zone” testing pool and seated together in designated areas.

It is a rule put as part of the pandemic protocols, but it could change next month as the regulations could be modified, but until then, Spurs players will have to compromise on this minor adjustment.
