Over the course of Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Spurs, one senior man has seemingly been completely frozen out of the first-team picture, even more so than Dele Alli.
It remains to be seen what is in store for Danny Rose this month, with the player not having featured in a Tottenham first-team shirt in over a year.
You would have to go back to January 11th, 2020 for the last time Rose started a league game for the North London club, a home defeat to Liverpool.
It is certainly not an ending that many would have wanted for the 30-year-old who has been at the club for over 12 seasons.
Rose made his Spurs debut back in 2010, and it brings with it one of the most memorable moments of the club’s modern history, a stunning volley in a win against Arsenal.
The ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ documentary depicted how frustrated Rose had become at the club during an intense meeting with Mourinho (TalkSport).
A loan move to Newcastle United followed for Rose in the second half of the 2019/20 season, with the left-back enjoying a consistent run of games on Tyneside (TransferMarkt).
However, after failing to agree on an exit out of the North London club, Rose has been forced to settle for minutes with the Under-23s earlier this season.
Former Spurs goalkeeper, Paul Robinson has been calling for another one of his previous clubs to take a gamble on the left-back and would love to see him return to Elland Road.
He said told Football Insider: “Danny Rose needs to get out of Spurs and play football if he has any chance of getting into that squad for the Euros.
“He is not going to get a game under at Spurs under Jose Mourinho. If he goes to West Brom he would play every week under Sam. That move would really work.
“He is the type of player I can see Sam signing, as much as I would like to see him at Leeds. Leeds still have a weakness at left-back.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
There can be no doubt that Rose has been a great servant at Tottenham Hotspur. However, for the sake of the club and for Rose himself, a quick exit would seemingly be the best for both parties.
