Following media reports today regarding the FIFA Disciplinary Committee decision to extend worldwide the sanction imposed by the FIGC Federal Court of Appeals on Fabio Paratici on 20 January 2023, Tottenham Hotspur made urgent enquiries to FIFA.
FIFA has late this afternoon responded to Tottenham Hotspur in writing notifying them today, Wednesday, March 29, 2023, that a decision has been made by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee to extend the FIGC sanction worldwide
This committee deliberation has been taken with no advance notice to any of the parties involved. We are urgently seeking further clarification from FIFA as to the details of the extension and its variance from the FIGC sanction.
Tottenham Hotspur should like to make clear that when Fabio conducted the interview on Club channels yesterday neither he nor the Club had any indication of this decision being made by FIFA, based on the fact the FIGC sanction was taken on January 20, 2023 and remains subject to an Appeal on April 19, 2023.
Tottenham Hotspur shall update on this matter in due course.
