The Telegraph have revealed that Fabio Paratici pushed for the Tottenham team bus to be branded with the club’s logo.
Spurs fans would have noticed during pre-season as well in the club’s opening Premier League clash against Southampton that the team bus had been emblazoned with the club’s crest and ‘Tottenham Hotspur’ in giant letters.
The Telegraph reveal that it was Paratici who pushed for the change and that the Spurs managing director of football also introduced matchday suits for all the players and the staff when they arrive at the stadium.
The report explains that the bus and the suits were introduced by the Italian to represent a change in culture at the club. It is said that Paratici wanted to change the perception of Tottenham as a club, which had previously been accused of trying to cut corners.
The Telegraph claim the former Juve director wants Tottenham to act like a big club and send a message that they mean business when they arrive for games.

One can understand why Paratici would want to change the culture of the club but I do not think it is fair to accuse a club, who have one of the most expensive training grounds and stadiums in world sport, of one that ‘cuts corners’. Then again, that is exactly what one would expect of Matt Law, who has a massive agenda against Levy and the Spurs ownership.
