Tottenham fans concerned injured star could miss rest of the season

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that defender Danny Rose will not return to first team training until the end of April.

The left-back picked up a knee injury in the 0-0 draw against Sunderland in January and has missed all of their 11 fixtures since, and he is continuing his rehabilitation.

It means that the England international could return to the training pitch by the end of the month, but it certainly puts his participation for the rest of the season into doubt.

The 26-year-old is set to miss out on the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, while he could also be absent for what could be the final north London derby against Arsenal at White Hart Lane on April 30.

Spurs supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, with some concerned at the vital matches he could miss and others speculating that he might not play again this term.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the injury update…
