The Sun chief sports reporter Martin Lipton has claimed that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and head coach Jose Mourinho want Danny Rose out of the club on a permanent basis.
On Thursday, the left-back finalised a loan move to Newcastle United for the rest of the season after failing to be included in Tottenham’s last four matches.
Rose was reportedly involved in a bust up at the training ground with boss Jose Mourinho after not being included in the squad which drew at Watford.
Tottenham players were reported to not have been happy with Rose’s actions and behaviour.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Lipton said:
“He’s (Danny Rose) not going to play anymore for Tottenham.
“There is no way they want him in the team; they don’t want him in the squad, they want him out of the club, they don’t want him to be seen there ever again.
“That’s the position they [the club] are in at the moment. I don’t just mean Jose [Mourinho], Daniel [Levy] as well.
“I think it’s fair to say that Daniel is an enigma as a player. He’s a very strong-minded chap – and there is nothing wrong with that.
“And for a while, I know [Mauricio] Pochettino quite liked the fact that he did cause friction in the dressing room – all the time.
“Not always negatively, but just to rough people up and get them going. And that wears away though.
“And there has come a point where they just don’t fancy him anymore and if Jose doesn’t like you, he’s not the sort to change his mind too easily.”
“Tottenham are desperate to get rid.”
“He did cause friction in the dressing room.”
