Tottenham faces full-scale management crisis of Daniel Levy amid concerns over Fabio Paratici
Daniel Levy confronts a full-fledged management crisis at Tottenham, with the Italian FA’s 30-month suspension on managing director Fabio Paratici for his tenure at Juventus likely to extend to the Premier League, while questions remain about Antonio Conte’s future as Tottenham chairman. Daniel Levy appears to be facing a full-fledged management crisis, with legal experts predicting that FIFA will guarantee that the 30-month ban imposed by the Italian FA on Football Managing Director Fabio Paratici also applies to the Premier League.
With manager Antonio Conte growing increasingly dissatisfied — only last week, he called on Paratici to take more responsibility for Tottenham’s problems — it appears that both of Tottenham’s Italians will be gone before the summer.

‘It’s not automatic and there is the possibility of challenging it at FIFA level but is very difficult,’ said De Marco. ‘We challenged [former Leeds’ owner] Massimo Cellino’s 12-month ban from the FA when he went to Italy but FIFA did not alter it.’
When he came in 2021, one of Paratici’s primary selling points was his friendship with Conte, but he initially failed to lure him to the club as Jose Mourinho’s replacement, instead opting for Nuno Espirito Santo.
When that appointment fell through, Levy and Paratici turned to Conte, who had early success in qualifying for the Champions League.
Spurs, on the other hand, face Fulham on Monday after losing three of their past four league games and are six points below fourth place, despite £150 million in summer spending.
