Why Tottenham should keep hold of Danny Rose beyond this season
According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Danny Rose has denied claims that linked him with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur.
The England international, 29, was made available for transfer and left off the club’s pre-season tour to Asia as his time with Tottenham appeared to be over.
Yet, unable to secure a move away, he has since started all four of Tottenham’s Premier League games this season and was also handed an England start in the Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino has been apparently open to selling Danny Rose for the last three transfer windows, but he has always remained the Tottenham boss’ first-choice left-back. Now that the left-back is a part of the Tottenham squad, should Pochettino keep hold of the 29-year-old beyond this season?
Absolutely! Tottenham turned down a £14million deadline-day bid for Danny Rose from Watford. Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain were also interested in the 29-year-old before the European transfer window closed.
Spurs signed Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in the summer, but the 19-year-old is yet to play for his new club because of a hamstring problem. Ben Davies hasn’t been fit either, allowing Rose to keep his place for the start of the season.
Rose is one of the most experienced members of the current Tottenham side. He joined Tottenham as a teenager in 2007, and he has been a regular in the side since returning from a loan spell with Sunderland in 2013.
Although the defender has since struggled with a host of injuries, he has still managed to amass over 200 competitive appearances for the north London side.
Tottenham haven’t enjoyed an ideal start to the new season, managing only one win in four games.
After a shaky start to 2019/20, Pochettino needs all of his players totally focused on the football, especially with points to make up in the Premier League already, and the Champions League set to commence.
That’s where experienced and professional players like Rose will need to step up and set an example for the youngsters and new signings.
A marauding left-back, Rose offers a lot of energy, tenacity and aggression to the Tottenham side. He can be clumsy at times in the tackle and get caught out of position, but the 29-year-old is a warrior and gives everything on the pitch.

Besides, the Englishman is significantly better at everything when compared to Davies.
One of the best left-backs in the Premier League, Pochettino must definitely keep hold of Rose beyond this season.
