When it rains, it pours, and this time, rightly so in the case of Danny Rose. The Spurs left-back has opened a can of worms as he spoke about a possibility of him moving away even though he has had his best years while playing in a Spurs jersey.
The English defender has not played for us since Janaury after picking up an injury but spoke about his ambitions to move to another club.
The left-back was speaking to the Sun in an exclusive interview and said:
“At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot. I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me.
“Time is running out and I do want to win trophies. I don’t want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal. Sorry, that’s not what I am about. I wouldn’t be happy with that. I want to win something.
“I will say this too, I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere. I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there. I have been away for over 10 years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.
“I’m not saying I want out but if something came to me that was concrete, I’d have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club.”
Obviously, this did not go down well with our fans and a number of them took Twitter to voice their displeasure. Here are some of the tweets. Read on!

Danny Rose a mediocre player on loan at Sunderland, now an England regular, what a way to repay the man/club who helped you get there #COYS

If Levy doesn't deal with things quick it will be far greater than Walker/Rose Spurs have to worry about next summer – it will be Kane/Ali.

Danny Rose is a bellend. Not for wanting to leave Spurs but for selling the story to The S*n
