Jose Mourinho has denied having any bust-up with Danny Rose on the training ground.

As Sportsmail reported, Danny Rose and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was involved in a heated exchange after the defender was left out of the team sheet in the last match against Watford.

The report said that Danny Rose questioned his manager’s decision to replace him with Japhet Tanganga. Mourinho, who considered the left-back to be unfit following his injury, advised him that it was in his best interest not to play.

After the 0-0 draw, Rose reached back to his boss criticizing him for not allowing him to play. As a result, both of them exchanged words which quickly escalated into a big showdown.

Speaking to the reporters ahead of Spurs’ upcoming match against Norwich, however, Mourinho has denied having any quarrel with Danny Rose.

“No. Between me and Danny, no. I don’t know what you mean by tension in the air, I don’t have a problem with him.” Mourinho said as per Daily Mail.

“I got a call from my medical staff saying that Danny was calling them with a problem in his back and he wouldn’t train the next day.”

“Friday it was a bit of a surprise to see him training, but even so I decided to play with (Japhet) Tanganga and have Ryan (Sessegnon) on the bench. That is the situation.”
