Danny Rose made the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently when he viciously spoke against Tottenham Hotspur’s inactivity in the transfer market and also insinuated a possible departure.
Regardless, manager Mauricio Pochettino was considerate in his words and seemed unperturbed by the controversy during his presser before the season opener against Newcastle on Sunday.
The gaffer was asked about Rose’s situation at the club following the acrimonious revelations, and the way he responded to it was simply commendable and deserves admiration.
Refraining from criticising the player, Pochettino suggested that it’s important to move on from the situation and also highlighted the importance of communication within the team.
Danny Rose has himself cast a huge doubt over his future at the club, but the support and compassion shown by his manager has earned him the respect from the fans who are proud to have him as their head-coach.
When faced with questions about Rose’s commitments to the club, Pochettino was witty enough to refer to the contract extension he signed last year, indicating Rose staying put in North London.
The discerning and canny way that the former Southampton manager handled the situation is what very few would’ve done in his place. And that’s exactly why the fans are in an awe of him right now!
