“Who said Mourinho is in control of the club?”-Tottenham’s Danny Rose

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose has shot back to the question on how it felt to have a manager like Jose Mourinho in control at the club saying:

“Who said he’s in control of the club?”

However, the 29-year-old didn’t specify who had the control, but it’s not Mourinho- rather the chairman, Daniel Levy, with whom Rose has had his differences.

Rose said last month that Levy had told him he would not be given a new contract to replace the one that expires in June 2021. Spurs’ attempts to force the defender out came to nothing and so Rose took a decision to run down his deal and leave as a free agent. His position hasn’t changed despite Mourinho’s arrival.

“I’ve never had a conversation with him (Mourinho) and I don’t see why I need to,” Rose said.

“As I said before, I’m here for the next 18 months, so I don’t see why I need to have a conversation with the manager. I want to do as well as I possibly can, work as hard as I can to achieve what looked impossible a few weeks ago, and that is finishing in the top four (of the Premier League).”
