With a place in the top four secured for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League season of 2018/19, Danny Rose also more than played his part in our run to the Champions League Final in Madrid – even though we suffered a disappointing defeat to Liverpool despite being the better side.
On Sunday afternoon, he also played his part in helping England to third place in the Nations League nonsense we now have to suffer as UEFA continue lining their own pockets at the expense of club football.
Although Rose was substituted with 20 minutes remaining in normal time, England went on to win on penalties in what was largely an uninspiring England performance – although Video Assistant Referee technology again took the headlines as we had a goal ruled out.
Having already suggested that the Liverpool clash could be his last game for the club, speaking after this success (?) Sky Sports again have him discussing his future and he admitted he didn’t yet know how things would play out.
“I don’t know what the future holds now. I’m looking forward to a break. If I’m back at Tottenham next season, great, if I’m not – great. I’ll just have to wait and see. It’s not about regular first-team football. I know my age and I know how the club’s run in terms of if you get to a certain age they might look to ship you on. It has been no secret that my name has been mentioned quite a few times in terms of players moving on and I’ll be just sitting tight over the next few weeks and just seeing what happens. Either way I’m prepared for whatever happens.”
In the interview, the 28-year-old also repeated that if this was to be his last year at the club, it was a hell of a season to bow out on.
“Last season I didn’t play as much as I wanted. This season I’ve played quite a bit, it’s been really good. As a whole, I’m proud of what I’ve done individually and I’m over the moon about what the club has achieved as well. There have been some difficulties – no signings, playing at Wembley and I think the club and players have shown great character. We are in a good position for next season now and we will be raring to go because the final in Madrid was an unbelievable experience and it’s one I’d love to experience again.”
Still sounds like he more than hopes to be one of us next term with his choice of words.
