Ryan Mason has spoken about Danny Rose’s current situation at Tottenham Hotspur in what has been a difficult season for the England international.
Mason was appointed as Tottenham’s interim head coach for the remainder of the season after Daniel Levy decided to part company with Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff after 17 months in charge.
Rose, who previously wore the club’s No 3 shirt was a notable omission when Jose Mourinho selected his squad for the Premier League in September (Sky Sports) and has been instead training with the Under 23 side.
The left-back was linked with a move away from North London during last summer’s transfer window with Italian outfit Genoa said to have held talks, only for a move to fail to materialise.
Rose was in a jovial mode outside of the club’s training ground on Monday when he joked with reporters by asking why they were camped outside Hotspur Way following the Portuguese’s dismissal.
Mason revealed that Rose, who is in the final few months of his is currently injured and has not yet spoken to his former teammate.
“I haven’t spoken to Danny personally. He’s injured at the moment and also I’m pretty sure he can’t play in the Premier League,” he told Football.London.
“He’s not been included in the Premier League squad so that’s something to be honest I’ve not really thought about.
“My main priority at the moment has been the players that are fit, the group that are over there trying to prepare as best possible for the game tomorrow because it’s been such a short turnaround that there’s not been much time for anything.”
