Jamie Redknapp believes Franco Baldini's position at Spurs could be in jeopardy
Head coach Mauricio Pochettino saw his Spurs side bounce back to beat Aston Villa, in a game they seemed destined to lose.
Barring substitute Harry Kane, there were very few impressive performances from Tottenham players, and pundit Jamie Redknapp believes the lack of quality is putting pressure on the man who signed them.
That's not Pochettino, but director of football Franco Baldini, who presided over the re-investment of the £86m fee received for Gareth Bale.
He told SkySports: "It probably wasn’t the right time in the summer to buy and sell lots of players after they did that at the start of last season, and it might be at the end of this season when he gets four or five in and four or five out.
“But if I was Baldini I’d be nervous after all the players he has bought.”
Spurs are not reported to be considering axing Baldini however, with a report in The Mail last week discussing a club restructure, suggesting he will retain his position.
If he really wants to feel comfortable however, improved performances from Roberto Soldado would help, as would some consistency from the likes of Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue.
The trio have shown flashes of quality this season but are yet to do it on a weekly basis, while Benjamin Stambouli, signed this summer, is yet to secure a first team starting spot in the Premier League.
