Tottenham ace Danny Rose responds to Mauricio Pochettino's comments, has strong message for Daniel Levy

Danny Rose of Tottenham Hotspur waves to the travelling fans after the UEFA Champions League Semi Final second leg match between Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur at the Johan Cruyff Arena on May...

The Tottenham Hotspur star raved about Mauricio Pochettino today.

Danny Rose of Tottenham Hotspur poses with manager Mauricio Pochettino as he signs a new contract on September 6, 2016 in Enfield, England.

Danny Rose spoke exclusively to talkSPORT this afternoon, and urged the club's board to listen to what Mauricio Pochettino says, in order for the club to move forward once again over the next few years.

The Argentine took over as manager of Spurs in May 2014, and he has worked wonders in north London, transforming the Lilywhites into perennial contenders for major honours both domestically and on the continent.


Poch spoke to reporters last week, and suggested that Tottenham need a new five-year plan, if they are to compete with the elite teams in Europe, as quoted by the Independent:

“What I think is I’m not open to start a new chapter with no plan or a clear idea. Until now it was so clear, that the priority was all that we talked before. If we expect every season to be in the final of the Champions League because it is our plan, we need to create a plan. And the plan maybe is different to what has happened in the last five years."

And Rose told talkSPORT how there are not too many managers in world football who could have worked under the constraints that Pochettino has during his time in charge of Tottenham:

"The board must listen to the manager. He said recently that he needs to know what the next chapter of the club is. I fully agree with everything he says. Not many people could operate in the circumstances that he’s done. We had no stadium, we’ve not signed anybody. Not many managers would have been able to do what Mauricio has done. We definitely have to listen to what he thinks and what he wants and hopefully we can give him that.”

Tottenham have a Champions League final against Liverpool to look forward in Madrid on June 1st, and should they win that game, Pochettino will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the club's greatest ever managers.
