Roma chief Baldini: I rejected Tottenham to come back

AS Roma chief Franco Baldini has revealed he rejected an offer from Tottenham to return to the Giallorossi. Baldini left his post as England team manager to re-sign for Roma.

"In order to return to Roma, I turned down very advantageous offers, such as the one from Tottenham," he told the Corriere dello Sport.

"I currently earn €600,000 per season, but the American owners offered me €1m, which at this moment I think is too much. I know the Roma environment and expected some problems.

"In these first few months I have been watching the situations develop, but now the time has come to take the reins of Roma."
