Danny Rose has named Gareth Bale as an inspiration for him and hopes he can follow his example to cement his own place in the side.
Rose made his name with a phenomenal 35-yard volley against Arsenal last season, but has otherwise found his first-team opportunities limited.
But he has found himself inspired by Bale and hopes to follow in his footsteps and make his own mark next season.
“I’ve been training hard for a good few weeks and I just want to prove to the manager and all the fans that I’m good enough to be part of his plans this season.
“You see Gareth Bale on the left and he gives 100 per cent in every game, so I just try to be like him and hopefully I can have a season like he did.”
