Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose has now been at the club for a whopping 12 years, since joining from Leeds way back in 2007.
Rose has gone on to play over 200 games for the club and has seen a number of club legends and world stars come and go in his time.
When you think about some of the players to have trained in the same squad as Danny, your mind goes to the likes of Ledley King, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Rafa Van Der Vaart, Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch, Mousa Dembele, and countless others.
In the current Spurs team, we have World Cup winning captain Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli, Heung Min Son, and more.
This doesn’t even touch on the stars like Wayne Rooney who Rose has trained with for England.
However, amongst all these amazing characters and footballers, Rose claims that Harry Kane is the best professional of the lot, and this is why (Daily Star).
“Harry is mentally very strong and will never pay attention to anything negative said about him,” said Rose.
“And in the same way, he will never get carried away with the plaudits so he is literally the ultimate professional.
“He’s the best professional I have ever trained with or played with and his record for both club and country is no coincidence.
“You saw the standard of his penalties against Bulgaria – that is what he works on every day.
“It is typical Harry just to respond in the way he did by scoring a hat-trick.
“He is really dedicated. He does not drink or go out. He does extra every day, working on his left foot and his right.
“And when things are not going right at our club, he is the first one in the changing room to say what we need to do.
“He is the first in and one of the last out and it is a great privilege to play with him.
“Harry is not one to pay attention to that stuff and people should focus on his goal record and what he offers to any team across the world. We should relish watching him.
“I don’t want to put pressure on Harry but when he is in the team, you are guaranteed goals and a leader who will give you everything.
“When someone is putting in the hours at the training ground that he does, it is not a surprise that he is enjoying the career he’s having.
“And what is scary is that he is only 27 and hopefully the best years are still to come.”
