Tottenham's Director of Football under pressure say papers

eNewsletter
According to the Sunday People, Franco Baldini's reign as Tottenham’s director of football is under increasing threat.

It is thought that the club’s board may not be convinced he is the right man for the job.

Chairman Daniel Levy and manager Tim Sherwood have also clashed with the Italian coach , who served as Fabio Capello’s assistant during his time as England boss.

According to The People, Central to the tensions developing between Baldini and the Tottenham hierarchy is the failure of frontman Erik Lamela to make an impact. The north London club spent £30 million of the £85m Real Madrid paid them for Gareth Bale on him.

Injured Lamela was sourced by Baldini, and Spurs may off-load the young winger in the summer. Especially as Sherwood has found a rejuvenated Adebayour is well capable of knocking the goals.
