Rose: Sunderland feels like home


Danny Rose admits that he is loving life on loan at Sunderland.

The Tottenham Hotspur left-back was loaned out to the Stadium of Light after he found himself third in the full-back pecking order behind Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Kyle Naughton. The 22-year-old is relishing the opportunity of regular Premier League football and admits that he feels at home there.

Rose has done well during his time with the Black Cats and it will be interesting to see if AVB is willing to let him join Martin O’Neill’s side on a permanent basis in the summer. There’s no doubt Sunderland will be keen to make the deal a permanent one.

“I feel as if I can’t do much wrong here,” Rose told the Northern Echo.

“It feels like home. When my mum and dad come here everyone at the stadium knows their names and they make them feel really welcome.

“Whenever I go anywhere, the fans go out of their way to try to speak to me. It’s brilliant and I’ve never had that before. I would be lucky if I could get that anywhere else, playing for another team in the league.

“When I was at Spurs I was not playing very often, I was on the bench a lot more than I am here, but my dad just wanted to be at every game I would be involved in.

“I would tell him not to come because I knew in myself I wouldn’t get on. Now he is here every match at Sunderland and my mum has come to a lot more games this season too. She has stayed up quite a lot and it has been great. My friends are up most weekends as well. It’s like being a kid again, it’s brilliant.”

Whatever happens, Spurs fans will always love Rose for his superb volley against Arsenal.
