Rose explains what he’s ‘missed’ in Spurs, Mourinho jibe

Date published: Friday 21st February 2020 9:12

Danny Rose has hit out at the way Tottenham treated him before his loan move away and insists the Newcastle staff and players have been “brilliant” after he joined the Magpies last month.

The 29-year-old has been with Tottenham for 13 years but has had several run-ins with the club over contract disputes.

And following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November, Rose became a bit-part player and was involved in a heated exchange with the manager after being left out of the Premier League clash at Watford on January 18.

Rose will remain at Newcastle on loan until the end of the season, and the left-back claims he has been given a new lease of life

“The last three months has been a situation that I haven’t had since I was 18 or 19 under Harry Redknapp (whilst at Spurs),” he is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“Coming here and seeing how the staff treat you is brilliant. The players as well have been great, and it’s a feeling that I’ve missed.

“I’m going to make the most of it for the next three months and, hopefully, we have a great end to the season.

“Off the pitch, Steve Bruce has been great with me if I need anything. He told me exactly what he expects from me when I joined.

“Even him taking the time just to have that conversation with me was brilliant and it’s something that I’ve missed.

“I’m willing to fight for him over the next few months and I can’t wait to get going.”

Rose has featured in both Premier League games for Newcastle since joining and will be looking to get his first win for the club when they travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
