Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose has now joined Newcastle United on loan until the end of the season, as the left-back has only 18-months remaining on his Spurs contract.
Rose had been frozen out of the side in recent weeks, not making a matchday squad in any of the last five games since reports emerged that he and Jose Mourinho had fallen out (Daily Mail).
Danny is Tottenham’s current longest-serving senior player, having joined from Leeds United 13 years ago, playing across ten senior seasons for the Lilywhites.
The left-back revealed last year that he would not be leaving Tottenham and intended to see out his contract before leaving on a free transfer (Telegraph).
However, the defender has now left on a temporary basis. Jose Mourinho has now revealed that Rose wanted to be playing every game as an experienced left-back, which is why he felt motivated to leave the club.
Mourinho said (Football London): “Danny Rose has a contract with the club and I think it is more a question of a player of 30 years old, 29, that wants to play every game and was not playing every game and had the chance of a manager in the club that he likes and he feels motivated to go.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I suspect that Rose and Mourinho did have a falling out, but also that Danny is trying to make the England Euros squad for what will likely be his last major tournament with his country.
