Paratici is expecting to receive a decision on an appeal on April 19. A Spurs statement read: “This week - 29 March 2023 - the FIFA Disciplinary Committee announced a decision to extend the Italian football Federation (FIGC) sanctions, relating to Fabio Paratici, worldwide.
“This decision was taken in advance of Fabio Paratici’s appeal hearing against the FIGC sanctions on 19 April 2023, the result of which would then have been considered by additional stakeholders, including the club.
“Given FIFA’s unexpected ruling the sanctions may now have multi-jurisdictional effect, although they are still related to the FIGC appeal. In view of FIFA’s decision, Fabio has agreed with the club that he will take an immediate leave of absence pending the outcome of his appeal.”
Paratici - who oversees the football operation - would be key to resolving Kane’s future and finding a successor to Antonio Conte. Spurs are continuing their recruitment process to find the sacked former head coach’s replacement.
