Jose Mourinho confirms he will not stand in the way of Danny Rose exit
Speaking ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s first game against Everton (h/t Football.london), manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he is happy for defender Danny Rose to leave the club, amid interest from Genoa.
Rose has been with Tottenham since 2007, having signed from Leeds United. The 30-year-old had been a key part of the team that scaled great heights under Mauricio Pochettino. However, over the past couple of years, he has had problems at the club.
In the season gone by, the England international fell out with Mourinho, over the lack of a regular game time, before leaving for Newcastle United on loan in the January transfer window.
Now that he is in the final year of his contract with the club. Rose’s future has been a constant subject of speculation, with the latest interest coming from Serie A minnows Genoa. And now, Mourinho has admitted that he would be happy for the full-back to get a summer switch to Italy. (h/t Football.london)
“If Genoa gets Danny Rose, I think they get a good player. If they get a good player in the last year of his contract, I think they’re in a privilege position to do a good deal for them. And if Danny Rose goes there, I wish him all the best.”
Further elaborating on Rose’s situation, Mourinho insisted that he understood the situation was difficult for the Englishman given that Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon were ahead of him, which meant he couldn’t play regularly. (h/t Football.london)
“The club knows I’m more than happy with the players I have in the left-back position and that I would be happy for Danny to leave and if he would leave to a big club.”
