Tottenham Hotspur posted photos of Danny Rose and Erik Lamela in training following long injury lay-offs via their official Twitter account on Wednesday, and Spurs fans weren’t impressed with the physical condition of the former.

Rose has been absent since January after picking up a knee injury against Sunderland and has found himself on the sidelines ever since, with Ben Davies proving to be a more than capable deputy in the left-back and left wing-back positions.
However the England international, who continues to be heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, was pictured back on the training pitch in photos that received a lot of attention from the Wembley faithful.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the images via social media, and while some said he needs to consider “cutting out the takeaways”, others simply said he was “looking a bit chunky”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Look at the size & condition of Rose. I'm surprised you found a kit big enough. Well done to Lamela for keeping fit & staying in shape

Instead of moaning about wages, he should save money by cutting out the takeaways

Looks like Danny needs to Google Dieticians, probably needs to move on just to afford to pay all those Uber Eats bills!
