Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose has now been at the club for 12 years, after he moved from Leeds way back in 2007. Since then, he has gone on to play 198 games for the club, scoring ten goals in the process (Wikipedia).
Rose looked back to his best towards the tail end of last season after recovering from issues on and off the pitch.
The left-back was first choice for Spurs in the Premier League and Champions League, as well as featuring for England at an international level.
At 29-years-old, the full-back still has many years left in the tank, but Tottenham have taken the decision to option him out to other clubs this summer.
This came as Spurs announced he was not part of the pre-season tour squad earlier this week as they had left him at home to pursue a possible move to another club (Tottenham).
However, Pochettino has now revealed that if Rose is still at the club in 10 days when they come back from the tour, he will be a part of the team again for the new season.
Poch said (Football London): “It’s true that in that situation it’s about expectation, challenge, players and club decisions. Of course, the club is going to do what it’s going to do. Danny is still our player. Like Janssen and Nkoudou, they deal with the club and they need to sort personal problems. If we come back after ten days and they’re still there then they’ll be part of things again.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I believe it will be a blessing in disguise if Danny Rose remains at the club for another season. I honestly believe that he is back to his best and it is always good to have players who are Spurs through and through at the club. You can’t buy Rose’s passion and he could be the perfect teacher for any new left-back coming into the club.
