Tottenham Hotspur Think Txiki Begiristain for Director of Football Post


Thursday, 27th September, 2012



Tottenham Hotspur are casting their eye towards former Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain, according to Spanish daily AS.

The English Premier League side have been on the lookout for a director of football, as they seek to replicate the widely-used European model of a coach working under a senior figure, at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have implemented the system before and are keen to do so once again, with a new appointment needed above current coach Andre Villas-Boas.



The club have been linked with Roma sporting director Franco Baldini of late, but the Italian, who worked with Fabio Capello at England, has stressed his commitment to the Giallorossi cause, having only only joined the Serie A giants last year.

This appears to have pushed Spurs to look to Spain and specifically Begiristain, whose stock within European football remains high.

The Spaniard is credited with being one of the main architects of Barcelona’s current golden era and securing his services would undoubtedly be seen as a coup for Tottenham.


Begiristain enjoyed a fine career as a winger before turning his hand to off the pitch matters, turning out for Real Sociedad, Barcelona and Deportivo La Coruna in Spain, before ending his playing stint in Japan with Urawa Red Diamonds.

The 48-year-old was appointed sporting director at Barcelona in 2003, staying in that position until 2010.
