Fabio Paratici, the managing director of football at Tottenham Hotspur since 2021, has left the team. After failing in his attempt to get the 30-month ban overturned, he resigned on Friday, April 21.

Due to his involvement in a fake accounting controversy for his former team, Juventus, the Italian Olympic Committee implemented the ban. He was barred from participating in some football-related activities in Italy by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).

Since FIFA last month extended his suspension to include international football, he is no longer permitted to take part in any football-related activity anywhere on the globe for the next 30 months. He had to resign as the MD of Tottenham after his appeal against the ban was rejected yesterday and the verdict was upheld.

In order to concentrate on his legal position in relation to the FIGC and FIFA judgements, Fabio has decided to resign from his job at the club.

“While the scope and extent of the ban remain in dispute, the current worldwide ban prevents Fabio from fulfilling his duties as our managing director of football,” Tottenham said.

He had to play a significant role in determining Spurs’ future by appointing a permanent manager for the squad, as the side is presently playing with a temporary management following Antonio Conte’s departure last month. Cristian Stellini, Conte’s assistant, is in charge of Tottenham until the last game of the season.
