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.
Respect Danny Rose is honest but think he acted like a child when talking to Mourinho. Especially saying he’s going to go see Levy about it. Just has a ‘I’m going to tell mum you’re not letting me play’ vibe to it. Instead should have asked what more he could do to be selected.

Was with him all the way.
Being upfront and wanting to speak honestly about his place in the team.
And then acts so immature at the end of his one to one with JM.
His tone and demeanor completely negated his points.

Danny Rose was right for pulling Jose for a chat but the delivery was poor, it just gave off the vibe where you ask for feedback but then don’t like what you hear and argue back. Had balls to actually ask Levy bout Milan though 😂 #AllorNothingSpurs

Best thing Jose will do at @SpursOfficial was to get rid of Danny Rose, stinking jumped up attitude and not half as good as he thinks he is! Great insight on All or Nothing : Tottenham Hotspur

If Danny Rose just leaves that meeting with Jose calmly and goes to speak to Levy afterwards I don't think there's all this debate. But the 'it's not fair I'm going to Daniel' sounded really petulant and undermined him having a valid point

Ok I just got to the part with the whole Danny Rose and Jose bit. To me Rose was acting like a complete child.
A) digging out his own team mates
B) what started off as a mature way to build bridges on an issue, to then chucking his toys out the pram
C) “I’ll speak to Daniel”

Can imagine Rose going into the office and speaking to Bill Nick like that . Can anyone think what Bill would of said ? Jose handled that brilliantly. Danny is toxic to the squad. #THFC #COYS #AllorNothingSpurs

Watching Rose speaking with Jose mixed feelings
He does speak some truths but he’s not listening either and walks away when he should be pushing for an answer

Is it just me who thought Danny Rose acted like a complete tosser when he wanted to talk to Jose? #AllOrNothingTottenhamHotspur

Spurs Web Opinion
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.
