Danny Rose watched Tottenham Hotspur youth players and offered them advice post-match after he was released yesterday


Tottenham Hotspur have released English left-back Danny Rose yesterday following the expiration of his contract.

The 30-year-old spent his last season at the club training with the youth teams having been omitted from Spurs’ Premier League and Europa League squads by former manager Jose Mourinho.

Rose fell out with the Portuguese in 2019-20, leaving temporarily for Newcastle United in January 2020.

The former England international has not played a competitive game since last summer, and would have wished to leave Tottenham on a high note.

Rose spent some of his last hours at N17 watching the young academy players at the club’s home stadium last night, giving them some advice after the game.

Spurs fans were impressed after former youth player and academy coach Sam Cox shared a picture of the defender with the youngsters on Twitter, with some of them reacting thus:

Rose joined Tottenham from Leeds United in July 2007, establishing himself as a key player under boss Mauricio Pochettino in 2013-14.

He featured in 156 Premier League games over 11 seasons, scoring eight goals and 11 assists.

Rose made the PFA Team of the Year in 2015-16 and 2016–17 after impressive campaigns, but a knee ligament injury he suffered against Sunderland in January 2017 ruled him out of the season.

He returned to first-team training in October 2017 and has struggled to reach his former heights ever since.

Nevertheless, he would not be short of suitors in the top-flight this summer, and Spurs fans will be keeping an eye on their hero going forward.

In other news, Spurs could look to sign Champions League-winning French manager.
