Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham defender Danny Rose does have a long-term future at the club according to The Mirror
Rose made his long awaited return when he came off the bench against Real Madrid on Tuesday to make his first appearance since suffering a knee injury almost nine months ago, and was well received by the traveling support.
It was also Danny’s first game back since he suggested,via the Sun, he would be open to leaving the club, and questioning the club’s transfer policy.
The article continues saying Poch has shown little patience with such indiscipline in the past, however yesterday he said that Rose is now happy at the club and ready to stay long term.
“Of course, he has four years more on his contract,” the Argentinian said of Rose ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Liverpool.
“You could see he helped the team in the final few minutes against Real. He is happy, his behaviour is fantastic.
“His mind is clear that what happened is in the past and we need to move on. He is part of my plans. The past is in the past.
“They are young and make mistakes but the most important thing is that they learn from that. Fans want the best for the team and Danny is our player.”
It’s unlikely Rose will start against Liverpool as he is still regaining match fitness, and Ben Davies has recovered from a bout of illness that prevented him from playing at Madrid.
So all is forgiven, and Danny is being reintegrated in to the squad. It does leave Pochettino with a dilemma however with Ben Davies being in good form, he hardly warrants dropping however Rose was first choice before his injury and subsequent outburst. Does Danny deserve his place back or will it be impossible to drop Ben? Let us know your thoughts
