Danny Rose has now opened up on the argument he had with Jose Mourinho in Tottenham’s All or Nothing documentary for Amazon Prime.

In the docu-series, an out-of-favour Rose was seen having a meeting with the then Spurs head coach in which he argued that he deserved more chances in the team (via The Sun).

Rose claimed that a number of other players were poor in games were continued to be selected, while he had one bad match and didn’t get a look-in thereafter.

The two came to blows and the meeting ended with Rose claiming that he would also have a meeting with Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman.

Unfortunately, despite being a loyal servant to the club for many years before Mourinho’s arrival, Rose didn’t manage to work his way back into the first team after that.

He was subsequently loaned out to Newcastle United and then spent his final season at Tottenham with the youth sides as he didn’t make the Premier League squad.

Rose joined Watford on a free transfer this month and opened up on that exchange with Mourinho back at Hotspur Way.

Asked, whether he was always as straight-talking as seen in the docu-series, he said (Watford): “Yeah, I think so.

“It’s not always welcomed in all industries, but most importantly I love winning.

“I did want to play, the team wasn’t doing amazingly well. And I thought I deserved to have been given a chance. But that’s football. Managers come in, some like you, some don’t. So it’s just one of those things.

“That experience has obviously shaped me. And I’ll probably deal with it a little bit better if it happens again in future.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

It was sad to see Danny Rose’s Tottenham career fizzle out in the way it did, another casualty of the Mourinho regime. It would be great to see him bombing up and down that left-wing again for Watford in the Premier League next season.
