Tottenham have refused to confirm reports that they are replacing director of football David Pleat with Dutch club PSV Eindhoven's general manager
Frank Arnesen.There seems little doubt, however, that former Denmark striker Arnesen has be been offered the new job of technical director at White
Hart Lane by chairman Daniel Levy, leaving no room for Pleat in his current role - which he has held for six years - and also twinned with the
responsibility of acting manager when Glenn Hoddle was sacked in September.Although Tottenham's initial target to become Hoddle's long-term
replacement, Italian national chief Giovanni Trapattoni, has now gone on record saying he would still be prepared to take the job after Euro 2004,
Real Madrid's former Manchester United coach Carlos Queiroz has become the new favourite in a partnership with Arnesen.
