Tottenham eye Baldini for backroom role
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is keen to boost Andre Villas-Boas’ coaching staff by adding former England No. 2 Franco Baldini to the management team at White Hart Lane.
According to thisislocallondon.co.uk, Levy wants his club to pursue a more continental coaching approach, which allows other members of staff to concentrate of matters of recruitment and scouting while the manager focuses on simply coaching the team.
Villas-Boas, who has been accused in the past of taking on too much in his role as manager, is thought to be in favour of the idea to bring in Baldini.
The 51-year-old Italian, who served under Fabio Capello before leaving for the role of general manager at Italian side Roma, was often lauded for his fluent English and ability to communicate well with the players. Indeed, the duty to inform players of their selection or exclusion from various squads would often be left by Capello to Baldini.
Having secured their first victory under Villas-Boas at Reading, Tottenham welcome London rivals Queens Park Rangers to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
