Tottenham defender Danny Rose has come out and categorically denied rumours of a new falling out with manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Rose was caught on camera exchanging words with Pochettino after being substituted in yesterdays Champions League win over Apoel Nicosia before storming off down the tunnel, this has lead to a barrage of comments in the press today claiming a new bust-up between the player and manager.
Rose, however, is having none of it, calling the reports silly
“This is getting silly now,” Rose said. “The manager said it was best I came off and I didn’t want to come off. That was it. I’ve seen 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 welcome. For the last three-and-a-half to four years, the manager has been my biggest fan. He’s given me nothing but love and respect. There is no issue. People need to stop this because it’s not welcome.”
That is quite categorical from Rose, he may be just spouting these words for the press who knows, but it remains likely that he will be sold in January if a club meets the valuation placed on the England defender by club Chairman Daniel Levy.
