Fabio Paratici believes Tottenham Hotspur have the potential to build something big
The Italian was hired by Daniel Levy as the new director of football of Tottenham earlier this summer after he did a stellar job at Juventus. Thus, he came in with a good reputation and immediately got to work at the North London club.
The transfer strategy was clear as Spurs targeted young players. Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero, Pape Matar Sarr, and Emerson Royal were brought in, while Pierluigi Gollini at 26, was also a good acquisition.
Although things are yet to click and fall into place under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo, Paratici is eyeing the big picture as he believes that the Lilywhites have the potential to build something big. The 49-year-old told Spurs TV (h/t Daily Mail):
‘When I spoke about the big picture, it’s this, we have the best infrastructure in the world, amazing fans, we are in a big city, the best city in Europe, so we have everything to build something really, really big.’
Paratici was also asked about his plan at the club, and he responded instantaneously.
‘Choose the right players, about mentality first, about the style of football second. To build the best team and best style of football we can. This is our target, it is not so difficult to think this, but we have to know what we have to do to achieve this.’
