Three Things We Learnt From Danny Rose’s Honest Interview
Tottenham Hotspur may be the most consistent club in the Premier League in the last couple of seasons but the lack of silverware and progress has seen some of the star players to look elsewhere. They have already lost a first choice full-back in Kyle Walker and the team chemistry seems to be falling out, as was evident in a recent interview from English international Danny Rose.
Extensively linked with an exit this summer, Rose had some harsh and honest dialogues with a news outfit in a recent interview and his comments have surely ruffled some feathers.
Spurs Have Big Problems
The English full-back was adamant that he was running out of time to establish himself as a successful player and insisted that he might head to a new club, not for new challenges, but for winning trophies. It is not a healthy thought process from a player of the club, let alone a first choice senior in the squad.
If Rose feels that Spurs have little chance of lifting trophies, there is a high chance that the same sounds are echoing around the club, which could be disastrous. Pochettino needs to find some kind of success this season to make sure that his squad and his fans start believing in greater things for the future.
Best Time To Sell?
Rose also spoke about not being paid enough and that he is almost in the final years of him as a footballer. He is yet to win a trophy in London and is clearly looking for an exit. He did not issue a ‘come get me plea’ as such but his comments made it quite clear that he is looking for a new club this season.
He is the first choice left-back for Spurs but his attitude and demands of a pay rise make it the perfect time for Spurs to offload him. He will fetch decent money in the market and will surely be replaceable in due time.
Even Rose Wants New Signings
But most importantly, it is not just the fans but the players of the club are also waiting for addition this summer. Pochettino has not made a single signing this transfer window and it could come back to haunt him pretty bad. He allowed Kyle Walker to leave and is yet to replace him and will go into the first game of the season without a first choice right-back, thanks to Kieran Trippier’s injury.
Rose revealed that he wants Spurs to sign a couple of star players to compete with the best this season but with time running out, it will not be easy for the club to make the right additions to the squad this summer.
