Spurs plans to return to a continental structure at White Hart Lane are due to be shelved for the time being as Roma’s General Manager Franco Baldini looks set to stay in Italy.
Reports began to emerge last week after Andre Villas-Boas was quizzed about a possible Director of Football coming in at Tottenham. AVB intimated that he was perfectly happy to work with Baldini and it was even suggested that the head coach had recommended the former England number 2 to Daniel Levy.
For some Spurs fans, you only have to mention the name ‘Damien Comolli’ for them to dispute the need for a Director of Football. However, Levy is claimed to be actively looking for a ‘recruitment specialist’ but if the latest reports are to be believed, it won’t be Franco Baldini.
