Danny Rose might remain a fan favourite with some fans, but amongst people who “do” Premier League football for a living, the boy is regarded somewhere between a proven liability and a laughingstock. According to a source close to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, José Mourinho certainly found the idea of Rose returning to Tottenham amusing. I am told he laughed heartily at the idea.
The Spurs’ football squad, under the wise stewardship of Mourinho and Levy are straightforwardly looking to not just survive these, the most troubling of times, but to seek out advantages. Danny ‘hang on a moment, I have The Sun on the other line’ Rose is not vaguely part of those plans.
My understanding is that should Rose end up at Tottenham to see his final season, then the now 30-year-old will find himself battling alongside U23s to get a kickabout. Daniel Levy extended a genuine hand of friendship to Rose after the first interview. Since then, the goodwill cupboard has been left bare.
