Tottenham Hotspur technical director Franco Baldini could find himself sacked as a result of the club’s failure to bring Danny Welbeck into the club on deadline day, with the former Man Utd star moving to arch rivals Arsenal instead, as reported by the Metro.
Daniel Levy, chief executive of the club, is said to be furious over the failed move from the Italian transfer wizard, and sees his ability to miss out on the England international, who moved to Arsenal for £16 million, as being worthy of the chop.
Baldini could now be sacked as part of a move by the White Hart Lane club to reshuffle the club’s back room staff before the January transfer window, with the hope that they won’t make a similar mistake again.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino had insisted on the need for a new striker at the north London club prior to the deadline, and it seemed as though Welbeck would be joining them on loan until Arsenal trumped them at the death.
Spurs now have only Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane as strikers in their squad.
