Franco Baldini is set to be name Tottenham technical director.

Baldini is leaving AS Roma as general manager after his resignation was accepted by president James Pallotta yesterday.

Andre Villas-Boas is used to working with a technical director, having profited, in particular, from the presence of Antero Henrique at Porto, and the Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, is an advocate of the two-tier continental-style structure.
