Quoted by The Star, Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose says it was "amazing" to see Chelsea players and fans harbour so much hostility toward Spurs in their epic clash at Stamford Bridge this past season.
Tottenham drew 2-2 at Chelsea in the third last game of the Premier League season in a result which saw the Lilywhites' Premier League hopes go up in smoke, with Mauricio Pochettino's side blowing a two-goal lead on the night.
It was a feisty affair which saw no fewer than 11 players booked - nine of which were for Tottenham, a Premier League record - while Moussa Dembele was given a six-match retrospective ban for an alleged eye gouge.
Before a ball was kicked, there was hostility after Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard - who scored the late equaliser which won the title for Leicester City - admitted that they did not want Tottenahm to win the league.
Rose, as he so often is, was also in the thick of the things on the field, but the England left-back admits it was amazing to see such "hatred" toward him and his team-mates, both from the opposition and Blues supporters.
“I have said sorry on behalf of Spurs for what happened in the game but, strangely enough, I wouldn’t change anything – apart from the result," he told The Star.
“To feel the hatred from the Chelsea players and fans was amazing. I just wish I could change the result and the amount of bookings in the game.”
