While the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern were somewhat concerned by the fact they hadn’t signed anyone this summer, their win over Newcastle United looked promising.
Indeed, not even if Danny Rose’s explosive comments could ruin Spurs’ season opener on Tyneside, though our north London locals won’t be in any rush to forget his words.
Still, the Daily Mail shed some light on the England man’s future. Naturally, the 27-year-old was linked with a move away from Hotspur Way after his interview, though the Mail’s Football Whispers round-up indicate he could be staying.
Having already sold Kyle Walker, Mauricio Pochettino’s options are already somewhat limited, so the punters propping up our bar are delighted about the idea of keeping Rose, who is still recovering from injury.
Whether or not you agree with what Rose says, there’s simply no way Tottenham can sell him at this stage of the summer.
Perhaps he’ll go next summer, though there’d be no time to replace a player of his quality, so keeping him is of paramount importance.
