Lazio have been told that they will have to play a European match behind closed doors if there is a repeat of their fans' racist behaviour - though that punishment has been suspended for a "probationary period of two years."

Spurs' fine came for what UEFA only described as "crowd disturbances."

Lazio were fined £77,000 for racist abuse during the home game with Spurs on 22 November last year.

In addition the Rome club were fined £42,000 for the "racist conduct of their supporters, ignition of fireworks and incidents of a non-sporting nature" during the match at Maribor in Slovenia the same competition on 6 December.

Maribor were fined £14,000 for the behaviour of their fans and for poor organisation.

All three clubs have three days to appeal.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
