Franco Baldini: Heavily linked with Spurs

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.

Spurs 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.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
