Tottenham defender Danny Rose insists it’s no coincidence that manager Mauricio Pochettino is frequently linked with taking charge of Real Madrid and Manchester United

Upon his appointment in 2014, Pochettino has converted Spurs into one of the Premier League’s best teams after three successive top-four finishes.

Despite not spending anything in the last transfer window, Spurs have continued their strong form this season and sit just six points adrift of leaders Liverpool in the league table in third-place.

The Lilywhites also booked their spot in the Champions League knockout stages this week by edging out Inter Milan for second-place in Group B due to a superior head to head record.

Therefore, Rose believes that Pochettino deserves to be linked with such high-profile managerial positions like Real and United.

“It’s no coincidence that every day you read Real Madrid want him or United want him,” said Rose, according to The Guardian.

“It’s exactly what he deserves. What he has done here in the last four or five years has been amazing.

“He has transformed how others think of us outside the club and he has transformed how we think of ourselves and how we approach big games.

“The belief he gives everybody is just amazing. For example, Kyle Walker-Peters made a mistake in Barcelona but it will not affect what the manager thinks of him.

“He will stick with Kyle no matter what. That’s the sort of man he is: once you win his trust it will take an awful lot to break that. He has been amazing for myself and this club, and we hope he is here for a very long time.”

Spurs will host Burnley at Wembley on Saturday in the Premier League.
