Damien Comolli says Danny Rose is his legacy at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur signed Danny Rose from Leeds United in 2007.

Damien Comolli said on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (November 6) that his legacy at Tottenham Hotspur is signing Danny Rose from Leeds United.

Comolli, then the director of football at Tottenham, recruited defender Rose from Leeds United back in 2007.

“We signed Danny Rose from Leeds and he was only 16 and a half,” said the Frenchman on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (November 6).

“He now plays for Spurs, he is doing extremely well. For me, to a certain extent that has got more weight than signing a big-star player just because it proved that I left a legacy behind.”

Rose has been on the books of Tottenham and has established himself as one of the most important players in the team.

The 25-year-old left-back is one of the better players in his position in the Premier League, although he has yet to make his debut for the England senior team.

The Spurs man was called up by head coach Roy Hodgson for the Three Lions’ games against Lithuania and Italy earlier this year, but he had to withdraw due to injuries.

Rose scored three goals and created 27 chances in 28 Premier League appearances last season.

So far this campaign, the left-back has played in five league games, creating four chances in the process.
