Tottenham’s Champions League final left-back Danny Rose surprised a good number of Spurs fans by saying he doesn’t know his future. Rose played 26 games last season for Spurs and appeared to refer to the club’s policy of moving on players approaching 30.
The player has been at Spurs since 2007 when he joined from current third tier side Sunderland. However, he only established himself as one of the best in his position under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. He was asked about his future in the aftermath of a Nations League match and spilled the beans on his mindset saying the club’s policy is usually of selling players round his age. Danny Rose is 28 currently and fast approaching 30.
Danny Rose isn’t sure if Spurs will keep him or sell him in this transfer window
Chelsea also have an unwritten rule of only offering one year deals to players over 30 but Spurs have adopted that rule to the extreme by selling players approaching 30 and making money off it.
“I’ll be just sitting tight over the next few weeks and just seeing what happens. Either way, I’m prepared for whatever happens.”

It must be noted that Rose wasn’t the first choice left back for much of last season but by the time the decisive end came, he was trusted with the left-back spot. Pochettino even trusted him to start the Champions League final, which Spurs went on to dismally lose against Liverpool.
Danny Murphy, who made close to 200 league appearances for Liverpool and left Spurs in the same season as Rose arrived has hit out on the defender. Rose’s contract doesn’t run out till 2021, so Spurs could also sell the man and make some money. Now that he isn’t so sure about playing for the club.
