Exclusive: Roberts drops Rose verdict as left-back leaves Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts believes that Danny Rose was to blame for his own treatment at the club.

Rose will leave Spurs at the end of the month, when his contract formally expires in north London.

It is a fall from grace for the ex-England international, who has been with Spurs since 2007, spending 14 years at the club.

Is Danny Rose a Spurs legend?





He made a total of 214 appearances for the club, developing into one of the best left-backs in world football at his peak, when Kyle Walker was on the other flank.

Roberts believes that Rose burned his own bridges by kicking up a fuss when Walker left for Manchester City, and asking for a pay rise that was denied.

The 30-year-old, who has won 29 caps for England, fell out of favour under the management of Jose Mourinho and did not play a single minute of Premier League football in the 2020/21 season.

Roberts, though, has little sympathy for the left-back, who will soon begin his search for a new club.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “He caused his own problems. I’ve always said the badge is bigger than any name. I was saying that about Harry Kane.

“If he does leave, the club will always be there. No name is bigger than the club and I think with Danny, he had the hump when Kyle Walker left and he went in and asked for a pay rise, and they said no and then he fell out with everybody.”
