SMELLING OF ROSES

Danny Rose is APPLAUDED by his Tottenham team-mates following explosive interview that saw him fined two weeks wages

Rose admitted he could be tempted to leave to 'find his worth' and urged the club to sign more world class players

DANNY ROSE got a hero’s welcome from a mutinous Tottenham dressing room following his explosive interview with SunSport this week.

The full-back was fined two weeks’ wages and apologised to for the timing of his comments.

But it is understood Rose was applauded by colleagues at the training ground with others threatening to speak out over concerns at Tottenham being left behind by their rivals.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Rose’s outspoken interview — in which he urged Spurs to buy two or three world-class players and admitted he would be open for offers to leave — rocked the football world yesterday.

Chairman Daniel Levy could now be willing to off-load the Chelsea and Manchester United target — but not for less than the £50m Manchester City paid for Kyle Walker.

Chelsea want Rose and are more likely than United to make a bid before the window shuts on August 31.

Rose, 27, plans to play for a northern club before he retires but it is understood he would not rule out a move to the champs.

United favour a part-exchange deal involving Luke Shaw, 22, who played under Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton.

But the Spurs boss is uncertain about the left-back’s fitness after his injury problems.

Poch has not confronted Rose over his claims.

But director of football operations Rebecca Caplehorn hauled the England star in to tell him he would be docked two weeks’ wages, around £130,000, for giving an interview without the club’s permission.

Rose is expected to contest the size of the fine.
