Danny Rose has claimed that he does not need to discuss his future at Tottenham Hotspur with new boss Jose Mourinho.

The England left-back has eighteen months left to run on his existing contract and still plans to run it down when he becomes a free agent.

Rose came back into the starting line up for last night’s 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich after Mourinho had used central defender Jan Vertonghen on the left side of his defence against Burnley.

The 29-year-old revealed last month that chairman Daniel Levy told him during the summer that there would be no offer of a contract extension (Standard).

Rose spoke of his excellent relationship with Mauricio Pochettino before the Argentine was dismissed as head coach after five and a half years in charge of the North London side.

Speaking after the match in Munich, Rose insisted that his personal situation has not changed following the arrival of the Portuguese.

“I’ve never had a conversation with him and I don’t see why I need to,” Rose told FourFourTwo.

“As I said before, I’m here for the next 18 months so I don’t see why I need to have a conversation with the manager.

“I want to do as well as I possibly can, work as hard as I can to achieve what looked impossible a few weeks ago, and that is finishing in the top four.

“I’m looking forward to a massive Christmas run that we’ve got.”
