England's Danny Rose: I have battled with depression, had personal problems

The Exploding Heads aren't about to pin any hopes on England, but it's all Anthony Richardson wants to talk about in Group G.
England renew their quest for a second World Cup title in Group G where Harry Kane & Co. will face Tunisia in their first match.
England midfielder Raheem Sterling tells ESPN FC's Mark Ogden that reaction to his tattoo is something that will be talked about then disappear.
Former Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque believes England have been slow to develop tactically compared with other nations.

England full-back Danny Rose battled with depression last season as he struggled to come to terms with injury problems and family issues, he said on Wednesday.

Rose suffered a serious knee injury in January 2017 and was ruled out for eight months before returning to the Tottenham Hotspur side and earning a place in England's World Cup squad.

"It's no secret that I've been through a testing time at Tottenham this season," Rose told reporters. "It led to me seeing a psychologist and I was diagnosed with depression, which nobody knows about."

Rose, who joined Tottenham as a 17-year-old in 2007, said he had not told his parents.

"They are probably going to be really angry reading this, but I've kept it to myself until now," he said. "It all stemmed from my injury when I was advised I didn't need an operation. I had cortisone and platelet-rich plasma injections trying to be fit for my club.

"I was getting very angry, very easily," he said. "I didn't want to go into football, I didn't want to do my rehab."

The 27-year-old has also had to deal with family problems.

"My uncle killed himself in the middle of my rehab and that triggered the depression as well," Rose said. "Off the field there have been other incidents. Back home in August my mum was racially abused in Doncaster.

"She was very angry and upset about it. Then someone came to the house and nearly shot my brother in the face -- a gun was fired at my house."

Playing for his country has helped Rose to cope with his issues.

"England has been my salvation and I can't thank the manager and the medical staff enough," he said.
