Fabio Paratici given a two and a half year ban from Football

On My High Trojan Horse
Agreed. I hope this means that Enrique is completely off the table now.

The downside is that the Dark Lord will now be responsible - again - for the next manager.
Yes. The likelihood that he'll get this appointment right is about 4.716% of the square root of 3.

Just so he understands as he's a numbers guy.

Fabio Paratici is still helping guide Tottenham Hotspur on a consultancy basis understands, having officially resigned from the Premier League club in April.

FIFA's lifting of parts of the Italian's 30-month ban are understood to allow Spurs' former managing director of football to undertake in consultancy for clubs.

Paratici lost his appeal against that Italian ban in April and he then resigned from Tottenham.

In the days after Paratici's Spurs resignation, FIFA reduced some elements of the global extension of his ban to allow him to return to football activity at a reduced capacity.

A statement then from the Italian and his lawyers read: "FIFA has upheld the appeal presented by Fabio Paratici against the provision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee which, in extending the temporary inhibition imposed by the FIGC worldwide, extended it to a ban on taking part in any activity linked to football. Paratici, assisted before FIFA by a team of lawyers made up of Paolo Lombardi, Luca Pastore and Ian Laing, will therefore be able to continue working in the world of football, albeit with reduced duties compared to those carried out to date, in compliance with the limits imposed by the sanction imposed by the FIGC."

FIFA's lifting of parts of that ban are understood to allow Paratici to undertake in consultancy for clubs.

Reports in Italy claim that he has been advising recently-relegated Sampdoria and understands that Spurs are also still receiving advice on a consultation basis from the Italian.
