“I just have to say thank you” – Returning Tottenham Star Surprised By The Reception From The Fans

Published

on

Tottenham put up a great showing against Real Madrid in the Champions League and many could not have believed that we kept the La Liga giants under control for a long time as the match ended 1-1.

Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo were the two protagonists when it came to the huge match but there was another story being played out, with regards to Danny Rose. The English defender played the last 10 minutes of the game, which was the first time he faced the Spurs fans after his outburst at the start of the season.

The former Leeds defender had openly criticised the transfer policy of the club and had also spoken of a move away from the club, possibly to one of the Manchester clubs.

While Rose was disciplined and he did apologise for the outburst, the 27-year-old expected to get a bit of stick from our fans. But surprisingly, we actually cheered him on in the game.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the left-back said:

“I did what I did. I was expecting a frosty reception from the fans so I just have to say thank you to them for giving me a great reception when I came on and when I was training on the pitch after the game.

“I’m trying to look forward now for the rest of the season. First and foremost I have to try to win my shirt back. [What I said has] gone now, my manager [Mauricio Pochettino] has forgotten about it and we all move forward and we try to win this club a trophy.”

Rose had only rejoined training a week ago and he was not expecting to play against the Spanish side or even be named among the substitutes.

The 27-year-old openly stated that he expected to play in the Carabao Cup fixture against West Ham but he could play a part in the big match at the weekend against Liverpool.

Rose also added that his injury has been a frustrating time for him and that he would be looking to make it back into Gareth Southgate’s side as the English team prepare for another World Cup where expectations aren’t all that great.

“It’s taken a lot longer than expected but I’m over the moon I’m back. I want to win my shirt back here, win my shirt back for England. I want to win something here this season and I want to be in the World Cup squad at the end of the season. My season starts now.”

Rose coming back will give us more options and even allow for more competition with Ben Davies. The defender might still hark for a move away from the club and it will be interesting to see just how Pochettino plays his cards with Rose as we look to win a trophy or two this season.
