Both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho did not consider Danny Rose as a long term first-team member but the defender would love to play for the club again.
Rose came through the youth setup at Leeds United and also got minutes for the Spurs development teams.
He is as close to a youth academy graduate Tottenham have as they could have. For the last 13 years, Rose has been associated with Spurs but not anymore.
The Doncaster native never made more than 28 Premier League appearances in a season. Mauricio Pochettino wanted to offload him. Jose Mourinho managed that with a six-month loan to Newcastle United.
It looks unlikely that Rose would feature for Spurs again. But he still harbors that ambition.
Talking on the Second Captains podcast, the England international shared he would love to see it out in North London.
“I am very happy to stay at Tottenham and see my last 10 or 11 months out, I would love to,” Rose told the Second Captains podcast.
“There is nothing I want more than to play one more time in front of the fans.”
“My last game for Spurs was a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and at the time I didn’t know that was going to be or could be my last game for Spurs. I want nothing more than to play in front of the Tottenham fans one more time, just to cherish all the moments we have had over the years with them.”
“They have always been good to me. I have possibly given them reasons in the past not to be so good to me, but they know when it was game time I gave everything for them. I will continue to do that as long as I am contracted to Tottenham.”
