Danny Rose tried to force his way out of Tottenham Hotspur and made a controversial interview criticising Spur’s policy and wage structure. This led to many to believe that Mauricio Pochettino and he are at odds.
While there is still a possibility that Rose could still move to Manchester United in 2018, but there are no indications yet about the transfer.
Rose was left out of the 18-man squad for the north London derby, a decision which Rose admitted left him “fuming”.
But during their game against APOEL in the Champions League, Rose played another 70 minutes and said that there is no issue between him and Pochettino.
“This is getting silly now,” Rose insisted. “The manager said it was best I came off, and I didn’t want to come off. That was it.
“I’ve seen already that people are saying we exchanged words. There is no issue between me and the manager. There has never been an issue. And people trying to put stuff in the media is not welcomed.”
Rose pointed out that Pochettino helped him improved and becoming one of the best left-backs in Europe over the last few years.
“For the last three-and-a-half years to four years, the manager has been my biggest fan,” Rose said.
“He’s given me nothing but love and respect. There is no issue. There never will be an issue.”
“I’m playing a game a week at the minute so hopefully I will get there if I stay injury-free,” Rose said.
“Once I get through this Christmas period and into the New Year, I feel I’ll be 100 per cent.”
