Arsenal legend Martin Keown has given his take on Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose’s recent comments about the Wembley Stadium in The Daily Mail.

Rose recently told The Guardian that playing at Wembley is no longer an honour for the Tottenham players.

The 28-year-old England international left-back also said that the atmosphere at the stadium is flat.

 

Former Arsenal central defender Keown has given his take on the comments made by Rose - who earns £60,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com.

Keown wrote in The Daily Mail about Rose’s comments: “It’s not ideal playing in front of just 30,000 fans at Wembley.

“That certainly takes away from the whole experience of playing at the national stadium. It must feel hollow for the players.

“I also have sympathy for the Spurs fans who make a big commitment to get across London for every home game. But it is always an honour and a privilege to play at Wembley in any match.”

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has also given his take on Rose’s comments, and told talkSPORT: “I’ve got to be honest, I’m not really interested in what Danny Rose says.

“He seems to have far too much to say for himself, and most of it isn’t particularly productive. I’m not a huge admirer.”

Title challenge

Rose and his Tottenham teammate cannot do anything about playing at Wembley for the time being; they just have to deal with it and do the best they can.

Spurs are going strong in the Premier League at the moment and are very much in the race for the title.

While Manchester City and Liverpool are clearly the frontrunners for the championship and have the strongest squads in England, Tottenham are winning matches and picking up points.

Tottenham will take on Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
