Fabio Paratici’s ban extended by FIFA in blow to Tottenham

FIFA have now extended the ban that was imposed on Tottenham’s Fabio Paratici by FIGC after Juventus were found guilty of inflating capital gains.

FIGC had initially stated that the Spurs sporting director would be banned for two-and-a-half years but the ban was subject to FIFA, since the Italian was operating in England at Tottenham. 

The Guardian have stated that the ban has been upheld and extended by FIFA to have a worldwide effect and it will now apply to all the leagues in the world, instead of just the Serie A. Unless the Bianconeri win the appeal later in April, Paratici will have to leave Spurs because of the ban’s imposition.

Juventus have denied all wrong-doing but a 15-points deduction has been imposed on them. Apart from Fabio Paratici, a host of ex-Juventus officials such as Pavel Nedved and Andrea Agnelli were also handed suspensions and bans for their involvement in the capital gains saga.
