Rose not going back to sit on Spurs bench

On-loan Sunderland defender Danny Rose says he will not return to Tottenham Hotspur to sit on the substitutes bench.

• Blog: The loneliness of a supporter

Rose, 22, has excelled on Wearside this season under manager Martin O'Neill, who has made no secret of wanting to keep the youngster permanently.

With Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas having described a permanent move to the Black Cats as "impossible", Rose admits that his desire for regular football for both club and country may force him to consider his Tottenham future.

"I honestly do not know what will happen next season," Rose told the Journal. "I do love Tottenham, they have done a lot for me over the years, I will be forever grateful for the stage I am at now. It's hugely down to them. But I am not prepared to go back to sit on the bench and watch other people play football. I've done that enough.

"I've got friends progressing into the England team and being in the squads. I'd like to think one day I'll have a shot at doing that. I'll only get that when I'm playing week in, week out, and I'm doing that here. I'm enjoying it here and I love being back up north. Nothing has been discussed with the management here or the management there about what's going to happen next season.

"I want to reiterate I will not be looking to sit on somebody else's bench again. I have loved every single minute of being here. I don't want to dwell too much on next season because I don't know what will happen. If I do go back to Tottenham it would be a shame not to get this sort of experience I have been getting here."

Having already represented the England Under-21 side, the defender makes no secret of wanting to make the step up to the senior team. And with Ashley Cole set to win his 100th cap for England on Wednesday, Rose says he takes plenty of inspiration from the Chelsea man.

"You watch Ashley Cole play now and he looks like he is 23 not 32. It's just amazing how he keeps getting better. If I could have half the career he has had I would be happy," he said. "I don't want to say I see myself playing for England. I played with the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley. It is nice to see them being given the chance to play for the their country. When I am playing week-in and week-out, maybe next season, I would like to be considered for that.

"I have only been playing left-back for a couple of years. I have got a lot to learn compared to other people who have been playing it for their whole careers. Some stuff is all new to me - distances away from your centre-half and the opposition winger - there can't be many better players to learn from than Ashley Cole."

Having only just returned from a hamstring injury that saw him miss most of January, Rose is keen to get back onto the field and continue his impressive form for Sunderland.

"In terms of my injury, that was frustrating because I was playing some good football at the start of January," he said. "I was just gutted I got injured. Now I just want to get back into the team and carry on my good form."
