SPURS were rocked last night after football director Fabio Paratici was banned from the game for two and a half years by an Italian court.
Paratici has been found guilty of orchestrating a three-season transfer fraud at Juventus.
And the Italian giants had their hearts ripped out of their season as they received a huge 15-point penalty for conspiring.
The shock result means the FA are now likely to be urged by their Italian colleagues to implement the suspension, leaving Spurs in the lurch and chairman Daniel Levy looking to plug a huge hole at the top of the club.
SunSport understand Wembley bosses are unclear as to whether the sanction is one they will apply automatically or will have to await direction from Fifa.
But associations usually accept the disciplinary decisions of other governing bodies and while Paratici is expected to appeal the Federal Court of Appeal ruling, his future at Tottenham looks bleak.
