Journalist Tancredi Palmeri has reported that Fabio Paratici’s suspension due to activities during his time with Juventus will also be sanctioned in England, but that is being contradicted by a number of other sources.
This comes after Gianluca Di Marzio revealed that Juventus are set to be hit with a 15-point deduction following their capital gains trial in Italy, with Paratici in line to get a 30-month suspension.
The case centred around Juventus and their transfer dealings with various other clubs, with Reuters reporting earlier today that ‘the capital gain from a player transfer goes straight onto a club’s accounts while the cost of a purchase can be spread over the life of a contract, creating scope to flatter the balance sheet with inflated valuations.’
RTL have reported that there has been a request to extend Paratici’s suspension of 30 months to UEFA and FIFA, which would have an impact on his work at Tottenham as they play in UEFA competitions.
CBS Sport journalist Francesco Porzio then clarified that Paratici’s ban would not apply to England at the moment, but confirmed there had been a request to extend the suspension outside of Italy to UEFA and FIFA.
It remains to be seen whether that extension will be granted and how it will impact the Managing Director of Football’s work in North London for the foreseeable future.
In their report, The Sun claimed that Levy may have to look to plug a hole at the top of the Tottenham hierarchy, while it is unknown whether the sanction will automatically apply to England.
Having said that, the report goes on to state that ‘normally associations accept the disciplinary decisions of fellow governing bodies and while it is expected Paratici will appeal the verdict – of the Federal Appeals Court – his future at Tottenham appears bleak’.
Spurs Web Opinion:
If the ban applies to England, it will have a huge impact on Paratici’s position at Spurs, to the point that I wouldn’t be surprised if Levy terminated his contract. As always, when it rains, it seems to pour and pour and pour in Tottenham.
