Tottenham ‘surprised’ by Danny Rose’s recent comments about his future

Rose impresses in second half of season

Danny Rose did not have the greatest 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

Partly due to injury and partly due to being second choice behind Ben Davies, Rose featured just 10 times in the PL.

The start of the 2018/19 season also saw Rose struggle for game time.

However, in 2019, the 28-year-old missed just two of Tottenham’s league outings.

Rose’s improved form also saw him feature for England in their Nations League third-place play-off.

Rose uncertain over Tottenham future

Despite, at the moment, Rose seemingly being Spurs’ number one left-back, he has cast doubt over his future in a recent interview.

Rose pinpoints his age as a key factor as to why he may not be at the North London club come the start of the 2019/20 season:

“It’s not about regular first-team football. I know my age and I know how the club’s run.

 “I’ll be just sitting tight over the next few weeks and just seeing what happens. Either way, I’m prepared for whatever happens.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.

However, according to the Evening Standard, Tottenham chiefs were left surprised by the full-back’s comments.

Sources close to the club have also said that no decision has yet been made over Rose’s future at Spurs, as per the ES.

While Tottenham appear to be in no immediate rush to replace their left-back, they are reportedly open to selling both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier this summer.

Marseille right-back Hiroki Sakai has been earmarked as a potential replacement, according to Sky.
