Franco Baldini has offered his resignation to Tottenham.
The Sunday Telegraph says Baldini, Tottenham Hotspurâ€™s technical director, offered to resign on the same day that Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as the clubâ€™s head coach.
The offer was immediately rejected by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has tasked Baldini with hiring Villas-Boasâ€™s replacement from a shortlist of candidates the Italian was asked to draw up this month.
Baldiniâ€™s offer to resign comes just six months after the former England general manager was appointed as technical director, on Villas-Boasâ€™s initial recommendation, and given the job of overseeing Spursâ€™ transfer business.
