Ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss advises rival to move for Rose

Tim Sherwood believes that Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose is worth paying a premium for.

The future of the England international came under the spotlight when he made some explosive claims in an interview with the Sun last month.

Rose criticised Spurs’ wage structure and questioned the club’s ambition, and he also admitted that he would one day like to return to the North of England to be closer to his family.

Those comments sparked rumours that he could be on his way out of Tottenham, but he was not sold in the summer window.

A report in The Independent claimed that Manchester United were interested in making a move for the 27-year-old, who has been out of action since January with a knee injury.

Jose Mourinho has not seemed to have settled on a regular left-back having played Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Ashley Young in the early stages of the season, while Luke Shaw has been recovering from injury.

Sherwood, who coached Tottenham in the 2013-14 season, believes that the Red Devils should swoop for Rose.

While featuring on Sky Sports’ show The Debate the 48-year-old said:

“I think Danny Rose is the best left back in the country. Someone like Manchester United are crying out for that sort of player. They would pay premium money for that, and I would recommend that they do.”
