Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to commend the left-back for speaking out on serious issues.
The 27-year-old was a regular last term for both club and country, and was touted as one of the best attacking full-backs in world football.
However, a public admission of personal hang ups with Spurs (ESPN) saw him fall out of favour, before a knee injury lengthened his stint on the side-lines, while teammate Ben Davis assumed the role of first-team left-back.
Rose was subjected to a fair amount of criticism for his words this year, but Tottenham fans have now come together in support of the player after his latest revelation, with many taking to Twitter to commend his bravery.
Here is a selection of some of the reaction:

Takes courage to speak out well done Danny it’s not all roses being a high paid footballer depression isn’t a illness it’s something most suffer from and the best way to beat it is to talk #mentalhealth— Gav Stenhouse (@Gavski22) June 6, 2018
I have a great deal of admiration for Danny as a person and a footballer - I hope that he can show his qualities at the World Cup and stays at Tottenham - I am shocked at what personal problems he has had to deal with— Michael Burdon (@Woodlandmikey) June 6, 2018
Would love him back at his best for us after the World Cup, incredible on his day! #COYS— D // Wadsworth (@Daryll_Spurs) June 6, 2018

Respect to Danny Rose for opening up about his own depression. With my own on going experiences of depression it’s difficult, holes you back and it doesn’t care who you are, how much or little you earn it could affect you. #respect #depression #anxietyproblems— DJ WiZ (@Benjaminwiz1) June 7, 2018

I know a lot has been said about Danny Rose over the last 12 months but what he’s said yesterday it massive! Huge respect for him being so open about his troubling times and experiences in and out of football. As a Tottenham fan, he has even more of my support! #COYS— Ben Haynes (@B_Haynes10) June 7, 2018
Rose will have inadvertently started a new trend of conversation regarding mental health in football, and fans are full of admiration and gratitude for his open interview.
The Tottenham defender also discussed potential racial abuse at the World Cup after previous experiences at international football and has allegedly told family members to stay at home through fear of further incidents.
