Tottenham Hotspur are in talks to appoint a second Director of Football
This plan has been in the pipeline for a while, following the departures of senior scout Brian Carey and technical performance director Steve Hitchen – as part of Paratici’s backroom revamp last season. The time has now come to strengthen our recruitment further.
Since the changes in personnel, Spurs have been looking to finalise a no. 2 for Paratici but no decision has been made yet. Hopefully, that will change soon.
According to Gold, Tottenham are looking to finalise the appointment but it hasn’t been set in stone yet. The person in question is expected to be a non-English man.
“Paratici hasn’t finalised his second in command yet from what I understand. I know final interviews were being held, with the person expected to be from abroad, but no appointment seems to have been made yet”, Gold said.
Can we expect an appointment soon?
It looks set to be a very busy summer at Hotspur Way, as all transfer windows have been since the arrival of the 49-year old Italian from Juventus.
13 players have already been released by the club, some bigger names like Steven Bergwijn, Giovanni Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele are expected to leave to generate substantial revenue through sales and the likes of Alessandro Bastoni and Gabriel Jesus have been linked to the club.

The loan deals of Christian Romero and Dejan Kulusevski are also on the brink of being turned permanent, for which Spurs have set aside a significant amount. All in all, it is in the best interest of Spurs to finalise the appointment of Paratici’s number 2 to ease the workload of their top man.
Recruitment of players has certainly received a shot in the arm since Paratici’s arrival. Hopefully, it will only get better once he receives more help.
