Danny Rose Spurs

Rose ‘fully agrees’ with Pochettino’s demands of Spurs

Danny Rose says he ‘fully agrees’ with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino’s comments regarding the future of the club.

The Spurs manager last week said that the club ‘need to operate in a different way’ to remain competitive at the top end of English football.

Despite working on an inferior budget to their top six rivals, Pochettino’s side have been regulars in the Champions League since the Argentine’s arrival in 2014 and have this season reached the competition’s final for the first time in their history.

England international Rose says he ‘fully agrees’ with Pochettino’s comments, praising the manager’s performance despite his limited resources.

Tottenham secured a top four finish despite becoming the first side in Premier League history not to sign a player last season, with the club’s move into their new stadium hindering them in the transfer market.

Rose previously spoke about Tottenham’s ambitions in 2017, saying it is unsustainable for the club to continue to punch above its weight amongst increasing competition, and his most recent comments echo those from two years ago, with the full-back saying now is the time to invest as they bid to take the next step to silverware.

“They [the board] must listen to the manager. He said recently that he needs to know what the next chapter of the club is,” Rose told talkSPORT.

“I fully agree with everything he says. Not many people could operate in the circumstances that he’s done. We had no stadium, we’ve not signed anybody.

“Tottenham are part of the big six in the Premier League and we have a different way of working.

“Not many managers would have been able to do what Mauricio has done, in terms of securing Champions League football four years in a row and finishing second, third and fifth.

“He’s brought a number of young players through and got them into the England squad.

“We definitely have to listen to what he thinks and what he wants and hopefully we can give him that.

“He’s a very likeable person, he’s very calm and even when we’re losing there have only been a couple of times where he’s raised his voice.”
