  • The pair will remain on the bench until at least October due to Covid protocols 

Tottenham players are said to be unhappy with Fabio Paratici and Steve Hitchen’s behaviour in the dug-outs during their home games this season.   

Paratici – who is the club’s managing director of football – and Hitchen – who is the club’s technical performance director – were on the bench during Tottenham’s fixtures with Arsenal, Manchester City and Watford. 

It is believed the Tottenham players were annoyed at the transfer chiefs for ‘rising to their feet to shout at the match officials’.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men also feel unable ‘to speak freely among themselves’ in Paratici and Hitchen’s presence.   

A source close to the Tottenham team told The Sun: ‘It just doesn’t sit right with the players.

‘The substitutes on the bench don’t feel they are able to speak freely among themselves with those guys sitting next to them.

‘The players as a whole don’t like it when the two of them are on their feet shouting at the match officials or the team.’

Despite the players disapproval, Paratici and Hitchen will continue to sit on the team bench until at least October. 

Due to the Premier League’s pandemic protocols, all players and staff in the ‘red zone’ testing pool are required to seated together in designated areas. 

Therefore, both Paratici and Hitchen will remain in the dug-out until restrictions are modified.

Sportsmail have contacted Tottenham representatives for a comment on the situation between the players and club officials.
