Roma's general manager Franco Baldini dismisses link to Tottenham
Monday 24 September 2012
Franco Baldini has quashed rumours of a move to Tottenham by insisting he is fully committed to his current 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 head coach Andre Villas-Boas.
Baldini, who spent over four years as England's assistant manager under Fabio Capello, has been heavily linked with a move to White Hart Lane but insists he is content with life in the Italian capital.
"I have nothing to say on this matter as I have an obligation over here with Roma, it is a long project to which I am committed," he told ESPN.
Former Barcelona technical director Txiki Begiristain has also been linked with a new role within Tottenham's hierarchy.
Villas-Boas would welcome the appointment of a technical director, having worked under one during his time at Academica de Coimbra and FC Porto.
