‘Acted like a child’ – Some Spurs fans react to Danny Rose confronting Mourinho

Some Spurs fans on social media are far from impressed with the way Danny Rose confronted Jose Mourinho in episode 5 of ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’.

The left-back was rumoured to have fallen out with Mourinho (Daily Mail) before he completed his loan move to Newcastle in January, and episode five of Spurs’ behind the scenes documentary showed fans a glimpse of an argument that took place.

After being left out of the matchday squad for the 0-0 draw against Watford back in January, the England international is seen requesting a meeting with Mourinho the following day.

A heated exchange then follows, with Rose insisting that he deserved more opportunities considering the backline’s struggles and Jose claiming that his selection decisions were based on performances alone.

Some Spurs fans on social media particularly took issue with the way in which the defender threatened to speak to Daniel Levy at the end of his meeting with the Tottenham head coach.

I was surprised that the scene actually made it into the documentary. While it does give fans tremendous insight into the relationship dynamics between a manager and his squad, the risk of making stuff like this public is that people will jump to their own conclusions. I see plenty of Spurs fans on social media being critical of both Jose and Rose on the back of that exchange. However, in reality, conversations like those go on almost every single week at various clubs, and I suspect neither Jose nor Rose came away from it with any hard feelings.
