Tottenham chief Comolli's scouting overhaul questioned

Tottenham chief Damien Comolli's hiring and firing of his scouting team has been called into question.

The Daily Mail says Comolli has axed four experienced scouts - Tony Book, Bryan King, Alan Hill and Eddie Presland - for being too old. Yet he has replaced Presland as chief scout with Mel Johnson, an ex-greetings card salesman who failed to make the first team at QPR or Reading. A club spokesperson defended the appointment, citing Steve Rowley, Arsenal's chief scout, as not having been a professional.
