Transfer Rater: Oxlade exit, Costa to Spurs


Harry Kane fueled by doubters


Danny Rose grateful to AVB

Tottenham full-back Danny Rose has hit out at previous regimes at the club, insisting that those who “sacked off” training would still find themselves in the first team.

Rose is now back with Spurs after impressing at Sunderland.
Danny Rose impressed at Sunderland last season.

Rose, 23, has spent the majority of the last five seasons out on loan, featuring for Watford, Peterborough, Bristol City and Sunderland.

However, last term he won many plaudits for his performances at the Stadium of Light, convincing Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas that he had a future at the club.

The England Under-21 international now appears to be Villas-Boas’ first-choice left-back for the coming season, and Rose has hailed the Portuguese’s impact since arriving at White Hart Lane.

“This is the most I've played in pre-season,'' Rose, who has been a regular in Spurs' preparations for the upcoming campaign, said. “It's nice to have a manager who gives you a chance and is not afraid to drop certain players.''

When asked whether he thought previous Tottenham managers had selected players on reputation, rather than their work on the training ground, Rose said: “Possibly, sometimes it's the name on the back of the shirt as well.

“It was frustrating, yes. A million per cent. It's not nice when you train hard every day and people are allowed to sack training off and still be in the starting XI.

“Obviously I know Spurs have been in the top four or five clubs for the last five seasons or so, so I know it's hard for anyone to break through, but at the same time it is frustrating and it's great that now the gaffer is not afraid to drop people if you're not performing or training hard enough.''

Having enjoyed regular first-team football last season at Sunderland, Rose says he is not prepared to sit on the bench at Tottenham and would be prepared to seek an exit if that were to happen.

“I enjoyed every minute at Sunderland. It's a club that I'd love to go and play for again because they're the only team at this minute which has given me a chance to play week-in, week-out,'' Rose said.

“It was a great experience. Martin O'Neill gave me so much freedom, I felt that I could do whatever I wanted wherever I wanted on the pitch, and Paolo Di Canio was the same.

“I enjoyed every minute of it and now I've experienced it, coming here and sitting on the bench is not something I'd be looking to do. I love this club, but if I don't play regularly then I'm not going to be happy, just like everyone else wouldn't be happy. I wouldn't be going on loan again. If I wasn't playing then a loan's not an option for me now. I want to get settled somewhere, playing week-in, week-out.''
