    Fabio ParaticiFabio Paratici recently left Juventus, where he had been since 2010

    Tottenham have confirmed the appointment of Fabio Paratici as the club's managing director of football.

    Paratici, 48, left his role as Juventus' long-serving chief football officer after 11 years last week.

    "Tottenham is one of the top clubs in the UK and in Europe with an ambitious long-term plan," he said.

    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said Paratici had "an outstanding track record in assembling competitive squads".

    Tottenham finished seventh in the Premier League last season and have not won a major trophy since the League Cup in 2008, although they reached the Champions League final two years ago.

    They are also facing a battle to keep striker Harry Kane at the club amid reports that he wants to leave.

    Spurs have been without a manager since firing Jose Mourinho on 19 April, but have been in talks with former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca after a move for Antonio Conte fell through.

      Levy wants to create a shield:a wall. Under pressure recently as the sole decision maker, he wants a cover.To be fair he has done a lot for Spurs with a smaller budget that other top teams. His contribution towards building the stadium will be there for years to come.But he has made mistakes recently . So the purpose of this appointment is to be in charge
      & pretend somebody else is in charge!!10

      It is a dubious statement from Levy to point to the success of Juventus and attribute it to Paratici and assume by bringing him to Spurs that the success will be replicated. Look at the net spend it’s upwards of 700 mil and he won’t get that from Levy so it’s a futile exercise and another ENIC masterstroke! A director of football is one part of process the other part is opening the chequebook!01

      Spurs like all teams have to compete with other teams with bigger history, budgets. It has taken Chelsea 20 years of huge investment to be considered a big team. Spurs are trying to not just keep up but compete with these teams. I think they are doing a good job, yes it could be better but that’s footy50

      They won’t need a competitive squad in the semi-friendly, mostly ceremonial Super League.01

      Spurs got pretty close a few years ago but that squad’s day is over-how many players do they have outside Son & Kane that look like they could be part of a PL winning side? Given some inevitable failures I’d reckon its going to cost Spurs £500m to win the PL. I can’t see Levy wanting to spend that & if he would, he’d have got Conti for a 2yr blast. Levy is the architect of Spurs misfortunes.90

Spurs are washed up and heading for a downward cycle (what evidence could suggest otherwise?), especially with Kane leaving.12

      In the 20 years ENIC have run Tottenham we have seen this press release many times. The names just change.
      The reality is of the so called Super League teams, Spurs are the least ambitious on the field. Yet the most ambitious off the field as the biggest ever profit made by a football club testifies in 2019.40

      If they have any respect for what Kane has given them over the years, they should let him go now. He deserves the chance to earn major success & for him it needs to happen quickly.47

      Jose sacked by Spurs and goes to Roma, Roma get rid of Fonseca and he’s now on the bink of replacing Jose. You can’t make it up sometimes. What a Merry-go-round. I bet if I got sacked from my job there wouldn’t be a line of employers queueing up for me!32

      Assembling great squads? Like signing Ronaldo for €90m with little to no sell on potential, bringing in dross like Aaron Ramsey and Emre Can, swapping Pjanic for a far worse player – not to mention Romero, who they bought from Genoa for €25m, loaned him back to Genoa with an €18m buy clause, so he can be bought for €18m and sold the next day for his market value of €40m+. They’ve paid Genoa, twice100

      Hes the genius who assembled the Juventus squad who just finished 4th? That brought Aaron Ramsey in on insane wages to complement their other large amount of failed CM’s. The team that has one permanent out and out winger but 6 cm’s…

      So its just a usual Spursy appointment from Levy?112
