Watford left-back Danny Rose is training with former club Tottenham Hotspur
Former Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose is currently training with the side despite being contracted to Watford, according to the Watford Observer via Daily Mail. With a year still left on his contract with the Championship side, the 32-year-old is looking for a way out.
The team that ended his Spurs nightmare are now a reason for the left-back’s disappointment. Having joined Watford at the end of last season, the England international has made just eight appearances for the Vicarage Road side.
Rose was frozen out in the middle of the season by Claudio Ranieri and hasn’t played a minute for the club this year. Now a move away seems likely, with the 32-year-old opting to train with some of his old mates.
In a similar fashion, Rose left Tottenham after a public bust-up with then-manager Jose Mourinho. In the 2020/21 season, the player didn’t feature in a single game for the first team. From starting in a Champions League final to be an outcast at the club, Rose has seen it all.
Rose was one of the best at one point
Alongside Kyle Walker, the left-back was part of one of the best defences in the league. Bombing down the wing, Rose made a name for himself under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino. The left-back made it to the PFA Team of the Year in 2015/16 and 2016/17.
But since a knee injury sidelined him in 2017, fans who’ve seen him play regularly will point out that the 32-year-old lost his way a bit. The left-back hasn’t been as impactful as he was before that injury.
With 214 appearances with the Lilywhites to his name, Rose is someone fans will forever remember for his screamer against Arsenal on his debut in 2010.

Maybe one of the biggest what-ifs for Tottenham fans, some can’t help but wonder what the 32-year-old’s career would’ve been like had he not had injury issues. We can only be thankful to Rose for being a part of a team that helped us get to this point today.
