On Thursday, it was ruled that Fabio Paratici’s worldwide ban from football was to be upheld.
The Italian sporting director was banned by the Italian Football Federation for 30 months and FIFA extended the ban worldwide.
The ban is due to his involvement in the false accounting scandal at his former club, Juventus.
Subsequently, Paratici was no longer able to carry out his duties at Spurs and this morning, the club announced his resignation.
Daniel Levy said: “This has been a stressful time for Fabio and his family.
“We wanted to ensure that we allowed for due process to be followed.
“Fabio is a man who lives and breathes football - we wish him well.”
According to the Evening Standard, the club have started looking for his replacement.
The club’s new sporting director will report into incoming chief football officer Scott Munn.
Meanwhile, Daniel Levy is, for now, leading the club’s search for a new manager.
