Danny Rose: If you don't work hard under Pochettino, you're not playing!

The Tottenham Hotspur defender has been discussing boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham defender Danny Rose admits Mauricio Pochettino simply won't play you if you aren't working hard.

Rose scored, registered an assist and generally proved to be a surprise star during Tottenham's 5-3 win over Chelsea on New Year's Day.

And the 24-year-old will hope to retain his place in the north London side's starting line-up.

His key to success is simply to work hard - as Spurs boss Pochettino is a big fan of a good work ethic...

“Let’s just say, if you don’t work hard under the manager, you’re not playing! You better make sure you give 100 per cent each day in training, which is very hard and intense," the Tottenham defender is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

“But I really enjoy it. As the long as the manager sees you are willing to work hard and want to fight hard for your team-mates, then you will go far with him.”
