Danny Rose names two Tottenham teammates who dig people out when in trouble

Danny Rose speaks highly of Tottenham Hotspur teammates Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has explained to the club’s official website how teammates Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb inspire the team when things are not going according to plan.

England international striker Kane and Algeria international midfielder Bentaleb enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2013-14.

“I know Harry has got all the plaudits for scoring his goals but people don’t talk as much about how hard he works and what he does for the team,” Rose told Tottenham’s official website.

“For me, he stands out with Nabil as players who will dig you out when you are in trouble and get your head back up.

“If we concede a goal the first person you’ll hear is Harry, shouting at everyone to keep going and it’s great when you’ve got someone like that who you’ve known for such a long time doing so well, it’s pretty inspirational.”

Tottenham are doing quite well this season and are very much in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Heading into this weekend’s round of matches in the English top flight, Spurs find themselves fifth in the league table with 21 points from 12 matches.

The North London outfit are just three points behind fourth-place Manchester United and only five points behind leaders Manchester City.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have scored 20 goals and conceded 10 in 12 Premier League matches so far this campaign.

Tottenham have created as many as 143 chances and have had 52% possession on average per match.
