Tottenham officially confirmed Fabio Paratici’s appointment as the new Tottenham Director of Football on June 12, 2021. Ever since his appointment, he has been working behind the scenes from Italy.
Paratici stated in his first interview: “I will dedicate all myself to this new venture and look forward to working with the management team to write a new and hopefully successful chapter in the club history.” [Evening Standard]
Fabio Paratici’s Role
Various sources have confirmed that Paratici will play a major part in finding Tottenham’s new manager for their next project.
Tottenham are now more than 60 days on from sacking Mourinho and Spurs fans have been on a rollercoaster of emotions with so many different managers being heavily linked.
However, none have worked out so far…
Fabio Paratici’s History
Tottenham’s recruitment team has received criticism lately for their lack of quality signings. On the other hand, Paratici had a great history with his time as Chief Football Officer at Juventus.
He signed great players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Andrea Pirlo, Paulo Dybala, and more during his time at Juventus. Tottenham fans can only hope that he will be able to provide great signings for Tottenham as well.
Tottenham’s Defensive Situation
Spurs fans are far from content with Tottenham’s current defensive situation. Paratici has reportedly shared his desire to focus on Tottenham’s defensive issues (Calcio Mercato).
Spurs fans have been begging Daniel Levy to buy quality defenders every single transfer window. Every time, he has failed to reach their demands.
However, with the strong presence of Fabio Paratici running the club as the Director of Football, Levy will feel pressured to spend money on defenders this window.
Fabio Paratici is a great addition to Tottenham’s hierarchy, but everything will happen once Daniel Levy invests in the club. Many different managers have “failed” at their time with Tottenham due to the chairman’s lack of investment.
Daniel Levy must ensure that he uses the appointment of Fabio Paratici as a sign to Spurs fans that he will finally back a major rebuild.
