Danny Rose bids farewell to fans after 14-year stay at Tottenham Hotspur
Speaking in an interview with the club media (h/t Evening Standard), Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose thanked the club and Spurs fans for making his 14-year stay at the club a memorable experience. Rose joined Spurs from Leeds United back in 2007 as a 16-year-old. He had some memorable games in the White shirt, including an awesome goal against Arsenal on his debut. Rose made 214 appearances for Spurs in his 14 years and was an important member of the Mauricio Pochettino side that made the final of the 2019 UEFA Champions League.
But all good things must come to an end. And Rose will depart the club this summer as a free agent after spending almost a decade and a half at Spurs. (h/t Evening Standard) Rose recalled his journey with Spurs and went on to mention how he was grateful to be involved in iconic games such as the 5-3 win against Chelsea at White Hart Lane or the 2-2 draw against Arsenal at home.
An emotional farewell
And he paid a riveting tribute to the fans who made him feel at home all this time. Rose said about the supporters:
“I get stopped in the street and they thank me for everything. I just want to say thank you for the love and support you’ve given me over the 14 years. I’m going to miss all the fans; miss everybody who’s been involved in Spurs and I look forward to coming back one day. They’ll be part of my heart for a long time and I’m going to miss them.”
But before his ode to the Tottenham faithful, Rose underlined his intention to return to the club once again in the future after he is done playing.
“He [Daniel Levy] was asking me if I need any help with anything, said I’m welcome to come back in the future. I’m over the moon I did make that choice to come here in 2007. And I look forward to coming back after I’ve finished playing football…”
