Klaus Allofs dismisses Tottenham link
Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has played down speculation linking him with Tottenham Hotspur.
A report in WAZ, a paper local to Wolfsburg, claimed Spurs are looking at potential replacements for technical director Franco Baldini in the summer.
The 53-year Italian was appointed during Andre Villas-Boas’s reign at the club but his role in the acquisition of over 100 million pounds’ worth of talent, including Erik Lamela, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado has been questioned.
Allofs has impressed at Wolfsburg since ending a 13-year association with Werder Bremen in 2012 and alongside coach Dieter Hecking has guided the club into Europe for the first time since 2009.
This has not gone unnoticed at White Hart Lane, WAZ reports, and cites unnamed “sources from England”, who have told the paper that Spurs are keen on Allofs as a candidate to succeed Baldini.
However, Allofs himself has distanced himself from the report, telling WAZ: “I don’t have any ambition to switch clubs. I am responsible for Wolfsburg, my contract still runs for a long time, and I take pleasure in my field of duties here.”
