Tottenham linked with rivalling PSG for new technical director

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a new technical director.

Reaching Wembley was an achievement for this Tottenham Hotspur side, but steps need to be taken to get them to the next level.

Beaten 2-0 in the Capital One Cup final by Chelsea, Spurs also remain sixth in the Premier League and are still be hampered by poor performances by some of the players signed two summers ago, as evidenced by Roberto Soldado's decision making during the loss to Fiorentina.

Franco Baldini is Tottenham's current technical director, who oversaw the spending of the £86 million gained from selling Gareth Bale.

Now the club have been linked with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paritici once again, by Tuttomercatoweb.

Paritici remains contracted to Juventus, but his agreement expires in June, and the website report both PSG and Spurs are interested.

Tottenham were linked with bringing Paritici on board in 2012 by Football Italia, but he renewed his deal with Juventus at the time instead, and six months later Spurs hired Franco Baldini.

Baldini's signings have had mixed success, with Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli emerging as his best buys.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp was quoted by Yahoo at the end of last year saying Baldini should be accountable for his bad buys and the team's performances.
