Tottenham Hotspur recently confirmed Danny Rose had been granted additional time off in order to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs with their release of the Asia tour squad.
After joining Tottenham in 2007 from Leeds United, Spurs fans may soon be saying good-bye to their longest-serving player.
Rose was an exciting full-back at the start of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign, however, he suffered a set of injuries that saw him miss 48 games since the start of 2017.
During his time away from the pitch, Spurs fans longed for the return of their heart on the sleeve wearing full-back.
However, it was during this period that Rose decided to broach the matter of his worth to the media in an interview that didn’t sit well with the club or its fans (Sun).
However, slowly, but surely he won the supporters back over as the Rose of old returned towards the end of last season and showed why he is rated as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.
It is a bitter pill to swallow for Spurs fans, as they may lose a player that gives everything when pulling on the shirt, not just for Spurs, but also for England.
Sam Allardyce was full of praise when talking of a player who played through injury during his time as England manager (Sky Sports – Monday Night Football – Sep 11 2017 at 19:00): “He pulled a hamstring and never said anything until after the game was finished, which wasn’t very pleasing for Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino as I know, but for me, that showed real character because we only won in the last minute.”
With heart and skill being a combined rarity in today’s game, it is no wonder there is interest coming from across Europe with Paris Saint Germain, Juventus, Schalke 04 and Newcastle said to be keen on Danny Rose (Daily Mail).
Spurs Web Opinion:
Danny Rose is a firm favourite of mine, he is a divisive player, but you cannot deny that he frequently gave everything for the club. I am hoping he remains.
