Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting in their droves to the news that Mauricio Pochettino could cash in on Danny Rose this summer as it would seem many of them would be against the idea of that happening on Twitter.

According to a report by The Mirror, Spurs could be prepared to sell the left-back (as well as Kieran Trippier) to help fund their pursuit of a new right-back before the end of the current transfer window.

Rose has been a crucial member of the team and despite things looking bleak for him this time last summer, he became a revelation for us over the second half of the season.

An exit appeared to be on the cards back then, before some rather shocking truths were made (Football.London), however, he was offered a clean slate by Pochettino and has since become the stalwart we have all loved.

Jermaine Jenas also mentioned recently in his Daily Mail column that he felt Rose had been one of the club’s best players by writing: “I would have no worries about Rose. In the second half of the season, he’s been up there with Moussa Sissoko as Spurs’ best player.”

Indeed, it would seem as though Tottenham fans would be in agreement with him as they find the possibility of selling the England international ludicrous.

Many of them thought it would be ‘madness’ to offload him whilst others echoed Jenas’ opinion and believed he was ‘one of our best players’.

Here are just some of those reactions…

  • Rose was brilliant in the last quarter of the season……by far the best player we had at a time when some big players disappeared. Danny is fundamental to Spurs……if you want to lose a left sided defender then cash in on Davies……was never convinced !!!!!

  • I don’t rate him much. Okay at defending and has pace on the attack, but wastes too many crosses, with his often poor delivery. He is a dynamic, passionate player, but Spurs need more than that.

  • I’ll be more than happy if we sell him, or better still arrange a swap for Digne. Like any sale or swap of a player the need is to get a better player for it to be a good deal

    I’ll give Rose credit for his work rate, and he doesn’t shy away from tackles and will take the knocks and shows a lot of heart

    Sadly though despite working hard getting up the pitch he really doesn’t do much with the ball when he gets there, it’s either try and cross and most of the time fail to beat the first defender, stand still over the ball dithering and then play a back pass or try a little dribble where there is little space to actually achieve anything even if he manages to get past one player

    Defensively he is rather mixed, I get that if you want a full back to get forward he is not always going to be in the right position when he needs to defend, but he often fails to read situations and get in the right positions to defend when he is back, often he sits far too narrow leaving the wide player time to look around and play a pass rather than closing him. That is not to say he doesn’t arrive to make an important block or tackle at times, but the quality of his defending is as inconsistent as his ability to give away unnecessary free kicks in dangerous areas is consistent

    He has a lot of heart but he’s nowhere near our best player, for me he is one of our weakest first team players when looking at his footballing ability rather than his stamina and drive, which though great qualities for a player to have don’t count too much if your football ability is lacking

  • All i remember is that Rose wanted to leave…
    he has been open about that and its clearly about more money.
    He has been stellar for us last season and deserves a bit of a pay rise to be fair since Davinson got his for good performances.

    If he still wants to go then swap with Digne as he will be downgrading to Everton – that itself is a lack of ambition.
