Franco Baldini stays loyal to Roma by dismissing Tottenham rumours
Tuesday 25 September 2012
Franco Baldini has dismissed rumours of a move to Tottenham by insisting he is fully committed to his job as general manager of Roma.
Tottenham are looking to change their management structure by bringing in a technical director or recruitment specialist to aid current manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Baldini, who spent more than four years as England's assistant manager under Fabio Capello, has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, but insisted last night he would prefer to stay in the Italian capital.
"I have nothing to say on this matter as I have an obligation with Roma, it is a long project to which I am committed," he said.
