Some Spurs fans on social media are upset at way Danny Rose is apparently being treated by the club.

There was plenty of speculation regarding Rose’s future over the past few months but The Athletic revealed that Tottenham were not able to find a buyer for the left-back despite their best attempts to move him on late in the summer transfer window.

The England international has already been left out of Tottenham’s Europa League group stage squad and was also not given a squad number for the Premier League campaign (Sky Sports).

While a few Spurs fans have no sympathy for the left-back and believe that the situation is of his own making, others do not like seeing the experienced defender treated in the manner that he is.

Some fans took to social media to question why the 30-year-old is being frozen out after the fantastic service he has given the club since arriving as a teenager in the summer of 2007.

Rose was seen having a heated conversation with Mourinho during Amazon’s All or Nothing docuseries when the former Leeds player expressed his frustration at his lack of playing time (Independent).

If Mourinho has decided that Rose is a negative influence on the changing room, then I do not blame him for not wanting him as a part of the first-team squad. However, there is no doubt that the left-back deserves more respect than he gets from parts of the Spurs fan base as he has given us plenty of fantastic memories over the years. He has apologised for those “Google” comments back in 2017 and in my eyes, that does not tarnish his legacy at Spurs.
