Fabio Paratici’s tenure at Tottenham Hotspur has been nothing short of tumultuous. The Italian was brought in by Daniel Levy to run the football side of things, but his time at Spurs has been marked by controversies and disagreements with internal figures.
One of the latest controversies surrounding Paratici is his involvement in the youth set-up at the club. According to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, Paratici has managed to annoy Academy lead John McDermott by increasing the pay structure for youth players. McDermott is believed to have been against this move as he wanted to keep the young players hungry in their development.
This is just one of many issues surrounding Paratici at the moment. The Italian is currently part of a major investigation and has essentially been banned from football for his role with Juventus previously. However, he remains at Spurs for now, with the club seeking further clarity and awaiting any appeals.
The situation with Paratici’s ban complicates matters even further, and after Levy decided to give former manager Antonio Conte the boot, he now needs to do the same with Paratici. There are question marks over what Paratici is currently doing at the club, and all that’s happening right now is his every move is attracting negative attention.
Under Conte, Tottenham have seen few players progress to the first XI from the academy. The likes of Dane Scarlett, Alfie Devine and more are highly-rated, but for now, they remain either on loan or away from the first-team. Paratici’s involvement in the youth set-up has not yielded any success so far, and his decision to overrule an old policy has only led to him annoying a key figure.
In conclusion, Paratici’s time at Tottenham has been marked by controversies and disagreements with internal figures. His involvement in the youth set-up has not yielded any success so far, and his every move is attracting negative attention. With his ban from football and the need for a fresh start at the club, it’s time for Tottenham to move on from Paratici.
