Tottenham Hotspur’s Managing Director Fabio Paratici has urged players to remain focused on their game and not let the speculation regarding Antonio Conte’s replacement distract them. Spurs are currently searching for a new manager after parting ways with Conte on Sunday. While Cristian Stellini has been placed in charge for the rest of the season, a number of high-profile names have been linked as a more long-term replacement, including Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, and Roberto De Zerbi. However, Paratici has advised the players to remain calm and not follow media speculations. He expressed that the team should concentrate on the remaining games of the season and support Cristian and Ryan, who are managing the team.
Paratici also acknowledged the stiff competition for Champions League qualification spots, with Newcastle trailing by two points and Liverpool and Brighton also in the running. He believes the Premier League is always tough, but they will fight hard to achieve their target.
Conte’s exit came after he criticized the players and club’s hierarchy during a press conference; and Paratici acknowledged how difficult the season had been for him, compounded by the death of Gian Piero (Ventrone) and (Gianluca) Vialli and his own surgery. The club supported him through it, and ultimately, they arrived at a mutually agreed decision. Paratici stated he was confident that Cristian and Ryan could do a wonderful job managing the team.
Emerson Royal, the Spurs defender, will undergo surgery after sustaining a meniscus injury to his left knee during Brazil’s 2-1 defeat to Morocco on Saturday. The club has confirmed that he will begin his rehabilitation with their medical staff after surgery and could potentially miss the remainder of the campaign.
