Fabio Paratici, who used to run Tottenham and Juventus, can still play football because FIFA has partly lifted the global ban they put on him.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) brought charges against Paratici and ten other former Juventus executives, saying that they inflated transfer fees to make the club’s finances look better. As a result, Paratici is not allowed to work in Italy for 30 months.

Later, FIFA made Paratici’s ban apply to the whole world and forbade him from doing anything connected to football. This forced the Italian to quit his job as Tottenham director.

Paratici tried to change the decision, and his sentence was cut in half. He is still not allowed to go into the locker room or talk to players or agents, but he can now go to training classes and do work behind the scenes.

“FIFA has upheld Fabio Paratici’s appeal against the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee,” said a statement from Paratici’s legal team. “The FIFA Disciplinary Committee extended the temporary ban imposed by the FIGC to the whole world and made it so that he can’t do anything that has to do with football.”


“Paratici, with the help of lawyers Paolo Lombardi, Luca Pastore, and Ian Laing in front of FIFA, will be able to keep working in the world of football, but with less responsibility than he had before, in line with the limits set by the FIGC’s punishment.”

The decision means that Paratici would not be able to go back to the kind of job he had at Juventus or Tottenham. However, Tottenham has already moved on and is looking for a new director of football.

Former Spurs assistant Cristian Stellini, who was fired as temporary manager earlier this week, had said that he would back Paratici in the past.

Stellini said, “He is a man who works with a lot of heart.” “I’m hoping he’ll come back. I know him very well as a person, and I hope he will come back, but it’s not up to me; it’s up to Fabio.

“Everyone has the right to a second chance in life. Everyone needs to do this, but you have to work hard and be the best you can be.
