Tottenham Hotspur’s managing director of football Fabio Paratici has been criticised by Italian journalist Enrico Camelio following Juventus’ poor start to the Serie A season.

Italian news outlet Calciomercato Show focused on Juventus’ fullback situation, highlighting the fact that Luca Pellegrini and Mattia De Sciglio started against Napoli as an example of one of Paratici’s ‘faults’.

The 48-year-old joined Tottenham in July after eleven years at Juventus in a variety of roles.

Paratici has overseen a busy summer in N17, with a number of senior players having departed including Toby Alderweireld, Moussa Sissoko, Danny Ros and Erik Lamela.

Tottenham’s summer recruitment focused on a younger crop of players heading through the door with Pierluigi Gollini, Emerson Royal, Pape Matar Sarr, Bryan Gil and Cristian Romero as part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s new-look side.

Enrico Camelio said: “The faults of Paratici?

“I only say this: Pellegrini on the left, De Sciglio on the right. He could never win against Napoli. Pellegrini would be at the bench at Genoa, let’s not joke.”

Paratici has only had only transfer window in North London and needs at least three more before he can start to be measured on his performance at Tottenham.

He has already moved on a number of older players, however, the fact that the club failed to bring in an attacking midfielder or a backup striker this summer was a frustration.
